About the cruise
The Otunui makes regular trips on some of New Zealand's most amazing waterways. The boat will cruise past wetlands and farmland showcasing New Zealand’s agricultural lifestyle and rural scenery. Visitors can relax on an easy one-hour coffee cruise. More information will be posted at a later date.

The sights
We pass by native trees and wildlife and birdlife along the River's edge. More information will be posted at a later date.

The experience
A commentary will point out features as we pass by and give a history of the area. Any questions on the boat or the points along the way can be answered by the skipper or crew. The vessel is 70m long (60 ft) and has a draft of 0.6m. It is a steel hulled vessel.
