Fab couple of hours.
Well!!! What a way to enjoy a few hours relaxtion. Did a lake cruise with my wife, an aunt and uncle and one of my cousins. We all enjoyed this cruise. Skipper Tim pilots the boat and Bronie provides a great commentary. Then Bronie takes you up to the top of the island for more great views and photo opportunities. Then back on board for a drink and biscuit with the return sailing back to Wanaka. A really professionally and friendly run cruise. A big thanks to Tim for upgrading us from the one hour cruise.

Cruisey cruise with views!
Mar 2021
This was a relaxing cruise on a fine day with calm water and great views. There was just the right amount of passengers to make it convivial without overcrowding. The guide Bronnie was very friendly and knowledgeable and put a lot of effort into making people comfortable. There are also great views from the top of the island, but the walk can take a while if your mobility is limited. So if that’s you, it might be better to relax with a cuppa and a cookie on the beach instead.

Great way to experience Lake Wanaka
Nov 2019
We have chosen to rely on Lake Wanaka Tours because it is a local company that offers the possibility of combining the cruise on the lake with a walk on one of the islands. We did the Stevenson Island tour, which provided just enough cruising time and a lovely short walk up the hill to get great views of the lake and mountains. Great cruise for all ages!

Lovely peaceful cruise and nature walk
Feb 2020
My husband and I booked this cruise in the hopes of having a peaceful trip onto the lake as well as some time in nature. This cruise ticked all the boxes. There ended up being only about 14-16 of us on the cruise, and we were the only people there on Stevensons Island which is fairly rare I'm told. There were some on the cruise who couldn't make the walk to the top of the island, so they hung out in the shaded area on the beach. When the walk was over, we all cooled our feet in the water. It was a lovely, lovely trip and we highly recommend it.

Stevensons Island Cruise & Nature Walk
Feb 2020
What a great way to spend a couple of hours exploring the outer region of beautiful Lake Wanaka. The catamaran made for smooth cruising despite the string wind and the short walk on Stevenson Island with the skipper was informative and long enough. The crew, Adam and Pavla were very friendly and would highly recommend this trip if you want to see the beauty of the Lake Wanaka.

A Relaxing Cruise. Great Crew
Jan 2020
This is a lovely way to spend a couple of hours. The couple who run the boat are very friendly and helpful. A slow cruise up the lake takes you to Stephenson Island which has a small beach and an optional 15 min stroll to a low peak for further views and a bit of information on local habitat.
Tea and coffee are included but I recommend a glass of wine or a beer as the prices are very reasonable. Sitting on the aft deck with a drink is great way to motor back to Wanaka beach.

Stevenson’s Island Cruise and Nature Walk
Dec 2019
We went on the Stevensons Island Cruise and Nature Walk today, hosted by Adam and Pavla. It was thoroughly well worth the money and we really enjoyed our time. Adam and Pavla were great hosts and made our trip very enjoyable. We would highly recommend this trip. The views from the boat were stunning and the nature walk was very interesting and informative.
