12 Mile Delta - A short drive from Queenstown takes us to a very special area of Lake Wakatipu. See fossil evidence of were ancient oceans once resided and learn of early Maori and European history surrounded by stunning native bush and birdlife. Take time to walk the beaches and observe the historical lime kilns.

Moke Lake - 15 minutes from Queenstown Moke lake is set amongst alpine farm land and native bush. A popular place for swimming and picnicking and being such a sheltered place provides a fantastic option on days when the weather conditions aren't favourable on Lake Wakatipu.

Great day on the water!

Seeing Queenstown from the water was a great experience for the family. Ben and James were great guides, and really helped the kids settle in. Wished we booked a whole day!

A Must

We went to Moke Lake, Dan the guide was very funny and helpful during all the ride. The lake was so beautiful, flat water, some ducks and birds around there, plus the feeling to be in a peaceful natural place with good equipment. We enjoyed this trip a lot.
