Taupo Maori Rock Carvings Lake Cruises & Jet Boating

Maori Rock Carvings Lake Taupo

Lake Taupo is New Zealand’s largest lake by surface area. It’s a great location for trout fishing and plenty of water activities. A popular attraction is the Maori Rock carvings on the cliffs of Mine Bay. These can only be accessed by water so lake cruises are a great way to explore them.

If you want to sit back, relax, and explore the lake, going on one of our Taupo Maori Rock Carvings Lake Cruises is the best way to experience the best of Lake Taupo. Take a scenic cruise with Chris Jolly on a luxury catamaran; or get on board “Fearless”, an original pirate ship that is great for small group cruises. Cruise to the popular Maori Rock carvings while enjoying the inspiring scenery that unfolds around you.

In summer, a swimming stop is included where you will have an opportunity to take photos of the spectacular views Lake Taupo is famous for.

Choose among a morning, afternoon, sunset, or Sunday brunch cruise. Scenic cruises are 90 minutes to 2 hours in length. Sailing cruises on Fearless take up to 2.5 – 3 hours, depending on the weather.

Jet Boating

Experience the exhilaration as the Rapids Jet navigates the narrowest gorge of the Waikato River. Brace yourself for the ultimate excitement, as we dance with the intense surges of the magnificent Nga Awa Purua Rapids (river of springs). These stand as the largest commercially jet-boated rapids in New Zealand.
