Sustainable Sailing Cruise to Maori Rock Carvings with Pizza

Sustainable Sailing Cruise to Maori Rock Carvings with Pizza


  • Visit the iconic Maori Rock Carvings on a classic sailing yacht
  • Get to the carvings faster to allow for more time to swim in the lake
  • Enjoy pizza on board and feel free to bring your own drinks

Board a classic sailing yacht and experience the natural wonder that is Lake Taupo on this 2.5 hour cruise. Take in the lakeside sights and sounds en route to the iconic Maori Rock Carvings at Mine Bay, enjoy pizza on board and spend some time splashing about in the crystal-clear waters.

What's Included?

  • 2.5 hour sailing cruise
  • Live commentary from an experienced skipper
  • One glass of beer, wine or non-alcoholic drink
  • Pizza (half pizza each)
  • Wet weather clothing and blankets

Choose the most sustainable way to explore the beautiful Lake Taupo on board a classic sailing yacht. You'll gracefully glide along the waterways to the iconic Mine Bay Maori Rock Carvings, hailed as one of New Zealand's most extraordinary contemporary artworks. Only viewable from the water, the masterpiece towers 14 metres above the lake and is surrounded by over 40 smaller carvings. Over the cruise, you'll learn about the history of the lake and be given the opportunity to help the crew hoist the sails and turn the wheel. If this doesn't appeal, you're free sun-bake on the main deck and savour a delicious pizza. As the yacht can reach the carvings faster, you'll be given lots of time to swim in the crystal-clear waters of Lake Taupo.
