Great to get out on the water, the hosts were lovely and could give a lot of information about the area.

Sailing on this atmospheric and lovely old sailing boat for 2.5 hours to the Maori Rock Carvings is an excellent way of experiencing the beautiful Lake Taupo and its mountainous backdrop.

A cruise on a classic yacht out to the rock carvings and around a couple of bays. Fantastic experience for all ages - possible to have a swim in the lake at the carvings as well as a complimentary hot drink to warm you up.

A relaxing and social sailing trip over Lake Taupo, leading to Maori rock carvings. But the best is taking a dive into the clear blue water with Mt Ngauruhoe in the background.

Two hour cruise, with a pizza and beer offered. Quiet, beautiful, you also see the Maori Carvings that you can only reach by boat. The Skipper was really nice and funny. A good memory.
