Overview

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.

The ultimate relaxation on the beautiful waters of Rotoiti. Matt, the skipper shared some magic spots with us: hot water bathing, ancient caves, not to mention his pleasant company. Great memories for us all to take home! Thanks Matt.
