Mou Waho Island Water Taxi - Wanaka Water Taxis

Escape the crowds and discover the magic of Mou Waho Island.

Highlights

  • Spend 1.5 hours exploring the stunning Mou Waho Island
  • Hike up to a hidden lake
  • Relax on secluded beaches

Where you can find an island, on a lake, on an island, on a lake, on an island on the sea!

Mou Waho Island is a protected nature reserve and is home to many native New Zealand birds including the curious and flightless Weka.

A short walk takes you to the top of the island where you will be exposed to breathtaking panoramic views of the Arethusa pool, Lake Wanaka and its surrounding peaks.

Our water taxi leaves Wanaka Marina twice-daily travelling 15km up Lake Wanaka, passing Mou Tapu Island and the steep cliff of fisherman's cove to Mou Waho Island.

Your friendly and knowledgeable skipper will inform you of the fascinating geology of the alps and the glaciers that created the lake as you travel along its sparkling waters.

Enjoy 1.5 hours exploring the Island and hiking to the hidden lake.

Absolutely a must do in Wanaka!

Shylo, our Captain was fantastic and kept us informed with local knowledge about the lake and scenery. The walk to the lookout had the most impressive views over Lake Wanaka, and a swim was fantastic. Absolutely a must do, especially if the sun is shining!

Stunning Adventure

Wow, what an amazing experience. We were blown away with the taxi service, Krystal is an amazing guide with so much information and the scenic ride was a great build up for the Island experience. Definitely a must do, the views are amazing and the island has a spiritual atmosphere that touched us deeply. Don't forget your Togs!
