This should be a must do trip to get out on Lake Taupo, to sail on a yacht and to see the Maori Mine Carvings. Dave was a brilliant captain and we would highly recommend. Book today!

Dave was such a nice relaxed captain who did just the right amount of chat and information. The boat was great, well equiped and comfortable and we felt right at home. We had a fantastic day for the ride and my teen girls even loved it as it was so special to be out on the water that way just chilling in bean bags. The pizza was a total hit, and my son loved the freedom of hanging in the cabin without too many rules.

We were a group of 6, and there were another 4 adults + 2 children on board. A beautiful day on the lake with exceptional professional, friendly and fun service from Dave. We were lucky enough to be under sail for some of the time, as wind allowed - such a serene peaceful experience. Just the right amount of information and local knowledge to make the trip interesting. A great day!
