Cosy little cruise on the Taupo Lake with a great view of a Maori cove sculpture, you can fish and eat what you get.

The team at Chris Jolly Outdoors did an amazing job for us. Thy were friendly, prompt at answering any questions and presented great value for money for our business. The staff and guests loved the boat ride and even the boat staff got dressed up in our theme!
The weather was crappy but the boat was super stable and the skipper found us a calm bay to float around in. I would highly recommend a business party on the Cruise Cat.

Boat cruise on Lake Taupo to Maori carvings. I didn't really like the boat but the commentary was really informative and interesting.

Standard sort of cruise (1.5 hours) good commentary and nice to be able to get a cuppa on-board. They don't tell you the maori carvings are modern until you get there! Most of us assumed they were old.
