Starting with the Jet Boat ride, you'll experience 25 minutes of pure, adrenaline-filled fun as your highly experienced driver takes you on the ride of your life.

You can then take things at a slower pace while enjoying a relaxing 45-minute cruise along Lake Wakatipu on board the historic TSS Earnslaw vintage steamship.

Wine, beer, beverages, and snacks can also be purchased from the onboard Promenade Cafe and Bar.
