3+ hours of beauty and nature's surprises. Boat ride was so relaxing - Peter was delightful - coffee and muffins at the end was a nice touch. Worth every penny of the very reasonable price. Victor, Cathie, Kelsey and Sarah.

A great cruise on Lake Te Anau today and an impromptu pick up by a float plane for the return trip. Peter is very friendly and knowledgeable about the lake and the flora and birds on our walk through the forest. A memorable experience.
