Didn't have a lot of time on our trip here, so we selected this shorter trip around Te Anau's lake. Was not disappointed! The host Peter is a very amiable and knowledgeable guy. We really enjoyed our time and learnt lots about this area. We were very lucky to an absolutely perfect day.

Great trip on Lake Te Anau with Peter. Did the Doubtful Sound Cruise with a large company the day before, and although that was beautiful there were a ton of other people and it was very impersonal - you are just another passenger. On Peter''s trip you really can relax, chat to him or other passengers on the boat or just enjoy a lovely ride with stunning surroundings. Very personal, lots of cool info and the walk to the Hidden Lake was neat. A cuppa and a muffin just at the right time.
I wish more people would find and choose to go with these small operators that love what they do - you can't beat an experience with a local.

We enjoyed such a glorious day cruising Lake Te Anau with Peter. The absolute best way to see the Lake and the South Fiord. Peter knows all of the hidden gems and shares such wonderful knowledge of the area.

After tramping the Kepler Track, the cruise was the perfect way to see those incredible vistas from another angle. Absolutely perfect.

Thanks Peter. Such an incredible day.

We really enjoyed our tour of the lake with Peter. Beautiful views, lovely boat super day! Peter has excellent boat handling skills, and is very professional but friendly and unstuffy at the same time. We learned some really interesting things about the local area and loved the fact that we were a small group so we got to know each other a bit during the day.

If you want to see and learn about the lake from a local, in a relaxing and fun environment, this is the trip for you! Totally recommend to anyone and thanks Peter for a great day out!

A wonderful family day out with Peter who answered every question from our 7 year old with patience and went out of his way to make our experience extra special by a wee ride in his smaller boat! The cup of tea and hot, fresh muffin was a very special touch after our bush walk. We were the only ones on the boat which made it even more special and Peter's knowledge was very thorough.

Peter provides a most enjoyable cruise around Lake Te Anau which includes a pleasant short walk on the other side of the Lake.
He has a smaller boat, which enables a more personal experience to the customer.
Peter's knowledge is very good
