    Fabulous cruise, certainly helped by beautiful weather, and the scenery is simply stunning. The "Faith" is a beautiful old boat and the crew, George and Sam, are most hospitable and friendly, and totally passionate about the boat the the tour they offer. The walk to the Hidden Lake is beautiful and we were entertained by several black robins along the way. Just make sure you wear sturdy shoes. The most relaxing way to spend 3 hours in Te Anau, such good value. Thank you George and Adam, and to Adam for some beautiful bagpipe playing way out in the middle of the lake.

    We had a wonderful morning excursion on the beautiful Faith with George and skipper, Marie. They took us across the lake, we moored then went on a walk through the forest. George was very entertaining with his knowledge about the area. Had a great morning tea aboard and back to Te Anau using the sails. Such a worthwhile trip. Thanks

    Amazing experience and so much better than the glow worm caves. Personalised trip with a fantastic guide that far exceeded expectations. Food and drinks were all included and really nice and tasty. The walk on a trail that can only be visited by boat and viewing the secret lake was excellent. This is a must do activity when you are in Te Anau.
