Great 'skipper/commentator'. He was humorous, but sensitive to the needs of his passengers, he has complete knowledge of the lake both historically and nautically. We learned a lot from this peaceful interesting trip. 90 minutes was not too long, it was just right

We loved this! Really good value AND they trust you to pay for your drinks and food onboard with an honesty box! Good 90 min cruise right up the river with commentary all the way. Nice quiet arvo thing to do. Great value for money!

Good to hear that you enjoyed our cruise and felt it was good value for money. People do find it amazing that we use an honesty box for the food and drinks but it seems to work and never really been a problem.

We had a private charter with Million Dollar Cruise in January, as a welcome event for our wedding guests. From the first emails we exchanged Betty was super helpful and the charter itself was fantastic! I am so glad we picked this as our welcome event activity as everyone really enjoyed themselves - from young kids through to adults. The cruise was such a great way to see a bit of Queenstown and for our guests to get to know each other before the wedding. I would definitely recommend Million Dollar Cruise as the charter was great, but the service and kindness of the staff made the experience even better. Thank you so much!
