RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
Come aboard and take in the picturesque secluded bays of Lake Taupo and the spectacular mountain peaks of the World Heritage Tongariro National Park. Visiting the famous Maori Rock Carvings at Mine Bay - one of the must do activities when you are in the Great Lake Taupo region.
Take in the spectacular views of Lake Taupo framed by Tongariro National Park's majestic snow capped mountain peaks as you cruise to the famous Maori Rock Carvings on a large, comfortable catamaran.
The Cruise Cat is the most comfortable boat on the lake to take. It is fully enclosed and wheelchair friendly with large outdoor decks allowing a closer view of the carvings and a luxurious experience on the lake
This cruise is family friendly with lots of activities for the kids! Earn your wheel certificate, feed the ducks, learn some fun facts about the Lake. You might even catch a fish.
Enjoy a freshly baked muffin and a hot cuppa onboard.
Not operating on Christmas Day
The boat can accommodate 85 passengers.
The only reason the cruise will not proceed is due to very high winds which can make passage on the Lake unsafe. In the event of this the ticket can be transferred or refunded.
This experience takes place on Lake Taupo.
