New and different

A welcome addition to interesting and enjoyable things to do on the West Coast. Terrain like this is not that common in NZ so being able to get up close to it in a boat is great. Birdwatchers especially will gain from it. A highly recommended alternative to charging around in a jet boat (although that's fun too).

A Great Tour!

I enjoyed a wonderful afteroon on this boat tour. The landscape was breathtaking (especially in the weather). It was unique to other tours have done in the past. It might not be, the longes trip you take, but its just right. Experience some rain forest by boat and hear some of the local storys about the area.

Excellent trip

We really enjoyed our cruise along the river to the lake. Comfortable seats and even blankets supplied if it is chilly. Beautiful day and the scenery was stunning.

Cruisy cruise

Was a nice day and the owner was nice you don't go around the lake which is what I thought we would be doing. You just go up a waterway turn around and come back good local knowledge. Just no lake tour

Hi Tina Happy to hear you enjoyed the trip. Sorry to hear you thought it went around the lake! Nowhere in our advertising do we claim to go around the lake...just into it...which you did. The feature of our trip is the 6km long high value lowland wetland trip and on a clear day the added highlight is seeing the Southern Alps on your left and Aoraki/ Mt Cook in front of you as you enter the lake. It would take more than double the time and cost to go around the lake. You will be happy to hear that we have been granted concession from our local iwi and runanga to access across the lake and are working with West Coast Treetops Walkway and cafe to make a loop connecting us, them, and the West Coast Wilderness Trail. We look forward to offering these options for our clients :) Take care....Gavin and Cindy Hopper.
