- Departing Taupō Marina

Come for a BLAST out on the lake and see the Taupō township in a new light.

This ultimate, spontaneous sightseeing trip could see you go to the Maori Rock Carvings or we could swing by Parasail to watch a flight dipping peoples toes, cruise by a charter boat to view the day's catch, or all of these things - you decide.

The options are endless!

WESTERN BAY
TASTER

- Departing Kinloch

Love waterfalls - so do we!
Come & explore the Northern end of the Western Bays with Taxicat Adventures.

 

This 90+ minute journey departs from Kinloch Marina just a short 15 minute drive from Taupo township. We'll swing by Kotukutuku landing and onboard any Great Lake Trail riders and their bikes while you take a 2 minute walk into the bush to discover the first of 3 waterfalls.

 

If weather permits there might even be time for a swim. From the landing, we will continue on to explore 2 other waterfalls only accessible by boat, then make our scenic journey back to Kinloch.
