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.
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.
No hard-soled shoes or heels permitted.
Minimum of four and maximum of 24 participants.
Dress comfortably and warmly (layered clothes work best), wind and showerproof jacket recommended. Bring swimwear and towel (during summer), sunblock, sunglasses and hat. No hard soled shoes or high heels.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
