We had to use it from Earnslaw restaurant at 01:30AM. Was good experience, driver didn't hold back with speed and played some liquid DNB from his phone via AUX. Recommend!

An excellent service if you need to get from Kawarau Village across the lake into Queenstown. Reliable and on time.

Used the water taxi between the Hilton resort and town several times, always on time, a little expensive and can get busy.

Hi Steve, thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We do hope you enjoy the rest of your time in Queenstown!

Ripping along the lake from Frankton to QT on the water gives you another perspective on the surrounds. A good chance to listen to local goss and a multitude of foreign accents. At night with all the lights in the valleys really pretty.

We took a water taxi from the Hilton into town to avoid the hassle of finding a parking spot in town (parking is challenging at times especially the summer). Fast and efficient and they drop you right in the center of the action.
