What people are saying about Waikato

Really worth it for the money. They tell you about all the history of the lake and the carvings and cruise is super relaxing. Sadly we went on a rainy day so weren’t able to see the true beauty of it all but was still very nice and informative. Free drinks on board and handed us some fresh blueberry muffins on the way back from the rocks! super delicious. I definitely recommend this cruise

Kids were so excited they didnt last in their seats for the first 3mins. The Maori carvings were amazing, hearing the history of it and also the fishing demonstration was a win. We even got to see a trout being caught on the line. Great experience!
