We spent an hour first thing in the morning SUPing across the Wanaka lakefront and along to #thatwanakatree. We were well looked after and the whole experience was easy and hassle free. Highly recommend for tourists and locals!!

Great jet boat ride on the Clutha. Exciting 360 turns, zip under the trees overhanging the banks of the Clutha. Also spotted a few trout. Thanks for a fun ride.

A group of 4 of us borrowed 2 double kayaks and had a beautiful day out on the lake- paddled out to Ruby island for a picnic lunch. Fantastic day and the team at Lakeland were super helpful! Thanks!

We enjoyed a great paddle from town to Ruby Island for the day. The double kayaks were just what we needed; nice and stable, comfortable and fast!

We took out a kayak on the lake for a couple of hours. Had a Great paddle on the beautiful lake and didn't have to share the water with anyone. Ideal activity on a calm winter day, no wind and mirror flat water!

What a fantastic experience, jet boating down the Clutha River. Speed, zigzags, spins. Incredible driving skills all the way, then a fast trip back across Lake Wanaka.

I experienced my first jetboat ride at Wanaka. It was a fantastic time. Michael our driver/captain was extremely kind yet balanced with professionalism. I was a little concerned about being scared but He explained everything and checked in on how we were feeling a number...More
