Our cruise is the only way you can stand above the turbulent white water and experience the awesome power of the Huka Falls!

Cruise for 1 hour and 20 minutes to New Zealand's most visited Natural Attraction, Huka Falls
Experience awesome views of Huka Falls (New Zealand's highest volume waterfall) from our purpose built riverboat. Comfortable inside seating, large rear deck and front viewing platform.

A real New Zealand experience with crystal clear water, birdlife and native bush lined riverbanks. See natural hot streams and the earth's energy that drives Wairakei Geothermal Power Station.

Enjoy complimentary tea and coffee while cruising on water that is always calm and watch New Zealand's largest rapids (Aratiatia Rapids) recreated before our cruise.

This is an excellent cruise for photography and we operate in all weathers.

Amazing falls on a two hour boat trip. Amazed by the volume of water flowing. Very good talk along the river by the friendly tour guide. Free coffee on board!

Cheap. Get really close to the falls & driver had lots of information. Not as exhilarating as a jet boat but more for your $$

Saw the dam open, 2 hours trip, was fine. The guy who runs it is really nice and helpful. Made sure everyone got the photo they wanted by the waterfall, took his time. Really nice.
