The iconic Maori Rock formations at Mine Bay have long been hailed as some of the most celebrated contemporary Maori artworks in New Zealand, attracting locals and visitors alike from all over the world.

Get away from the big crowds and enjoy an intimate cruise aboard our unique, pirate-themed vessel "Sail Fearless" led by local expert - Captain Dave, as we take a thrilling journey on Great Lake Taupo to discover this fascinating cultural landmark.

Prop up a bean bag or snuggle under some blankets and have your camera at the ready to capture some of the most breathtaking views around, taking in the popular Te Kopua and Acacia Bays en route. If you're game, try your luck at giving the crew a hand hoisting the sails or even taking a turn at the wheel!

You will be in awe upon reaching the Maori Rock Carvings embedded in the towering cliff face looming 10 meters high above. Only viewable from the water, these dramatic works are some of the largest rock art of their kind in the world and will be sure to impress!

To top off the experience, you can cool off as we take a stop for a swimming break - the longest swim stop out of any company on the lake!

Good value

Very good value for money. The woman who ran the tour was knowledgeable and friendly. The pizza were better tha expected and the beer was fresh. The swim break was a bit short but it was great experience all together
