This Trip Plan has proved
 over time to
                                           be the most popular although it can be modified to suit your  own requirements. 
                                             We will depart from Taupo Boat Harbour to cruise to Mine Bay, a pictuesque and 
                                             tranquil bay. We will put anchor to enjoy appropriate music and quality social time    with your best friends. You will visit the famous modern day Maori carvings, and be
  overwhelmed by the geographical features of this volcanic region.

  Engines off, the quiet enhances your appreciation of the picturesque back drop 
  of New Zealands native bush and the regions snow capped mountains. A 
  perfect setting to enjoy good music and quality social time. An ideal time for a 
  swim to experince the refreshing, crystal clear waters of the 'Great Lake'.
  You can choose from our menu to enjoy anything from Light Nibbles to a                      
  delectable Salmon Platter.
  And for the 'girls that can do anything' - it is more often the case that the                                                               
  ladies will enjoy the challenge of a Skeet (Clay Bird) Shoot.

  If fishing is a chosen activity the crew will provide the support to ensure you enjoy the experience. 
                                                                  We will offer to Bake or Sushimi onboard your freshly caught
