The boat was big and had lots of room for us to move around. Lake Wakatipu was stunning. The commentary was infomative and we got to explor the secrect spot - Bobs Cove. We had a great time on the farm and seeing the sheep...More

I believe this tour would still be rewarding and enjoyable, even in the rain (provided the lake waters are calm). You can purchase a snack and a beverage (coffee, tea, mulled wine) and enjoy the views from the comfort of the seating in the interior cabin.
