Hi Peter and team

Rhara and crew

Firstly team, I just want to say a MASSIVE Thankyou to Chris - AKA Chrisso, who took us out on the lake today on the lovely Kakariki. What a fucking LAD is all I have to say. He was so kind, lovely and accommodating and I will be recommending him to all the other less hot bitches I know. Secondly - You guys and your team are fucking amazing. Never stop! We had the BEST day ever!!!!!! Love from - the yellow maid of honour ❤️ (ps you can use this as a testimony but maybe switch out my lewd words haha)

Hubby's surprise

I booked this as a surprise for my husbands 30th birthday, invited a group of our friends and had a blast! He was happy when he saw the boat and the beers and though yhat was it...we all enjoyed shooting him with the paintball/sea biscuit and then the claybird shooting happened, he was ecstatic. He couldn't believe it when we then got to have a beautiful swim in the lake and then a bit of fishing on the back of the boat. It went from strength to strength; i dont think I'll ever be able to beat this as his best birthday in the future! Thank you so much

Kakariki family trip

Really enjoyed our trip on Kakariki. The Skipper gave us a great history of the rocks and all the Bays around Lake Taupo. Was great to stop for a swim out of the wind, we felt like we were the only ones on the boat.

Very pleasant tour and sightseeing trip to see Maori carvings . Did not know anything about them and found them very worth while visiting. Captain very friendly and informative. Lovely tour of Taupo lake on the way with excellent narration.

We did a lake cruise on the Kakariki today with some friends. Wow. Chris the skipper makes this such a good time. The cruise is really about going to see the Maori rock carvings but the commentary provided whilst travelling there and back is awesome. Very professionally run yet plenty of fun on board. If you are considering a cruise on Lake Taupo make sure this one is at the top of the list.

An excellent choice

An excellent tour! Very interesting - about Lake Taupo and the area, history, mythology, biology/ecology, trout fishng, and the Maori art carvings and more! Two very lovely and knowledgeable crew/guides. Even better that we got discounted ticket prices. Definitely recommended!
