Wayne is an absolute lad! Made the boat cruise

Fantastic Experience and Knowledge

This is a great experience for anyone wanting a relaxed cruise filled with interesting background and information on Queenstown. Enjoyed every second of it and would do it again. The captain of the boat has a witty sense of humor and knows his stuff!

A Must Do in Queenstown!

A great way to see the Remarkables mountain range and Queenstown in general. Wayne was our captain and he was funny and very informative. He made sure we all got our photo shots that we wanted. I have nothing bad to say about this at all.
