Waikato River Cruise Ecological Tours

Waikato River Cruise

Enjoy a leisurely Waikato River cruise up the mighty Waikato River, taking in the sights as your driver also shares with you the stories of the area. This 60 minute tour takes you upstream through the narrow Cambridge gorge also whilst capturing a glimpse of stunning waterfalls, fish and birdlife.  Along the way you will also learn about the history of the river, all from the comfort of one of our jetboats. But don’t worry, no spins, unless you ask for one or two spins. In addition, you will visit the base of the Karapiro Dam and power station. The Waikato’s best kept secret, come and see for yourself, in conclusion you will be very impressed.
