About
Spend a day on the stunning Kepler Track, one of NZ’s most rewarding day walks! You can’t beat a walking track that’s been built with the purpose of showing off the very best features of Fiordland. The Kepler Track was custom-built for pure hiking pleasure. Its alpine vistas, rugged high country, deep gorges and tall beech forests make the Kepler one of our favourite NZ Must Do’s. Kepler Track highlights Climb to the peak of Mount Luxmore, 1472m, for a birds-eye view of Lake Te Anau & the town. Explore the stunning stalactites and stalagmites of the Luxmore Caves and soak up the beauty of grand alpine views that stretch on for miles. Hike through golden tussock high country and tall Beech Forests; and at night, listen for the sound of the morepork, a tiny native owl, or shrill whistles from the Brown Kiwi. The quintessential Fiordland hiking experience!

Friendly professional service and would highly recommend them to anyone. We used them to take the family (two young children) across lake Te Anau to walk up to Luxmore Hut on the Kepler Track fro the night. They have a purpose built boat with experienced skippers and they drop you off and pick you up from the beach, your feet wont even get wet!

The water taxi website tells you that you don’t need to book. The board in the shore tells you that there are services at 8:30 and 9:30 am. On Sunday 8 people arrived to make use of the taxi and waited in vain. We eventually discovered that the service had been cancelled. So why not put a notice up to say this?

Due to the fast-moving situation with Covid 19 we were unable to continue operating our service from Sunday. We are sorry you were affected by this decision however it was made to keep our people safe and we do not apologise for this. We are not useless, we are an excellent business with excellent service but now with no work for many months. I am sure whoever is reading this will appreciate the situation and make their own mind up for future bookings.
