Private Cruise on Lake Rotoiti on “Tiua”

Experience an unforgettable day exploring the endless bays, caves and coves of Lake Rotoiti in Rotorua, under sail on the beautiful sailing catamaran ‘Tiua’. Fish for rainbow trout, soak in the lake edge thermal pools and explore some of the locals’ favourite places. Your crew will entertain you with local Maori legends, fine wine and great food as you cruise.

Lake Rotoiti offers many amazing spots catering to every activity and weather condition. And the experienced crew offer everything from the most adventurous to the most relaxed of itineraries.

Lake Rotoiti’s numerous bays mean there is always somewhere sheltered to park up and enjoy the serenity, no matter what the weather.  Tiua can nudge into spectacular bush clad coves where you can relax and enjoy a meal and drinks, swim, and sunbathe. You can also go ashore and explore the bush or picnic on the beach.

Many areas of the lake offer a chance to see geothermal activity. Observe steaming fumaroles as you sail by or go ashore and sink your toes into the warm beach pumice sand. You can even soak in the tepid spring water of a natural flowing stream.

The yacht Tiua has a fully licensed bar serving local New Zealand wine and beer, and a great selection of spirits.
