Experience the best of the Rotorua Lakes aboard the luxury sailing catamaran Tiua on the fresh waters of Lake Rotoiti. Pure Cruise offers a genuine, personal sailing experience exploring the native bays and coves of this beautiful lake under sail. Fish for Rainbow Trout, soak in the lake edge thermal pools and hear stories & legends of the local Maori, all accompanied by fine wine and great food. Pure Cruise is an off the beaten track indulgence that is unmistakably New Zealand.
