Thank you for taking the time to review the trip and recommending us. I am pleased to know our crew were helpful with your boarding of the yacht.
Wise choice of a boat type and crew

We had this trip on my birthday together with my husband and our 14 year old daughter. We were lucky with the weather and enjoyed the trip to the outmost. The crew was very friendly and they shared good stories and history about the lake, the surroundings and the Maori Rock, of course. The boat is very comfortable, you can hide from the wind or rain inside, if needed. And, at the same time, it gives you full access to the view and nature like an open small boat. Wherever you sit you'll have a good view and plenty of space. Not like in a big boat where view is a problem. Highly recommend it.
