We went on the paddleboat for a friends seventieth birthday. What was great was the exclusivity of this boat for such an event. The cruise was safe and warm and layout was good. The food was what you would expect not gourmet but standard hearty...More

Staff were absolutely friendly. Place was clean. We had gone with a GrabOne voucher which was 50% off the price which is all I would have paid. Not sure if I would have paid full price. Informative talk about the lake.

This could be a FABULOUS Rotorua attraction if someone could invest some money and time. On a positive note, the customer service we received from Eric was excellent, but that is all I can commend about the dinner cruise experience. The decor is tired and...More

Really enjoyed our time. Food and wine were good. Very friendly staff and good service. Food fresh and we liked several varieties of bread, olives, dips and sun dried tomatoes. The cruise was after sunset so we enjoyed some beautiful dusk colors and views at...More

Nice boatride on Lake Rotorua, plenty of food and friendly service. What's not to like? Nice ending of my trip to Rotorua (takes just over 1h).
