This is one of the remarkable experiences we ever had with our kids. Lake Wakatipu scenery is very attractive. we enjoyed the cool wind and beautiful scenery all over the way on the tour. The cruise staff is very friendly and supportive. there are some toys provided for kids to play with. there is an in cruise mini cafe that you can buy hot or cold drinks and selected snacks. all the passengers had a chance for photography in the Captian's cabin on his seat :-) .

A truly magical morning out on The Spirit Of Queenstown Cruise..

My first visit to Queenstown, so this was my first taste of her wonderful beauty, and she did not disappoint. The luxurious Spirit of Queenstown cruise boat made for a wonderful and comfortable journey on Lake Wakatipu. The panoramic views were absolutely breathtaking, I could go on, but all I say is I highly recommend this cruise, especially if you're new to Queenstown. Thank you to the skipper and crew of The Spirit Of Queenstown for a wonderful morning on the lake. I will be coming back and taking this cruise again for sure!
