Our Cruises

Enjoy a scenic cruise in any weather condition with fun, informative commentary of the history of the Maori Rock Carvings and the surrounding lake area.

With comfortable seating both inside and out, bathroom facilities and a licensed bar, we’ll ensure your cruise on the Ernest Kemp is warm and comfortable.

Don’t forget to have a look at the beautiful art piece on board by master carver, Matahi Whakataka Brightwell.

 Well behaved dogs are always welcomed on board.

PLEASE NOTE: Ernest Kemp will be going for a refurbishment and repaint from the 13th May until late June. We will be running our cruises on our other vessel Top Cat or luxury yacht Regal Flyer. The cruise will be exactly the same and Top Cat features an entire top deck to enjoy the autumn sun.
