Private Charters

Private Charters are available aboard the ‘Rotoiti Explorer’, our large 12m pontoon style boat with two passenger decks and licensed for 50 passengers. This boat is very stable on the water meaning you can move freely around the boat and enjoy the large viewing deck.

We can tailor make a cruise to your requirements - from a sunset hot pool cruise to a lakeside BBQ birthday party!

This boat is ideal to host groups or parties, staff functions, clubs’ member trips and any sizeable group get-together at a reasonable price.

We specialise in creating tailor-made trips:

  • Focus on the history, local wildlife and beautiful views
  • Explore Rotoiti’s hidden bays and hot water beaches, nudging into steep cliff-faces 
    to examine flora and fauna. Spot Rotoiti’s rare Dabchick birds!
  • Stop at points of interest allowing photo opportunities
  • Picnic stops if requested
  • Optional geothermal hot pool swim
  • FREE tea/coffee
  • Maximum of 50 passengers

Smaller Groups

For smaller groups we have ‘Bulldog’, a 6m Blade Runner catamaran licensed for 10 people. Fishing Charters are also available. click here
