For us, the aim was quite simple – to share our love of water and the astounding beauty of the region with visitors. Lakeland Wanaka’s vision is to offer classic kiwi water adventures for both New Zealanders sharing our passion of water and international visitors.
We are 100% kiwi owned and operated; our team highly engaged with an absolutely love for their jobs. Our staff all have a passion for the outdoors and water, picked for their personalities and want to share why we love what we do.
Each of our guides go through rigorous training programs and continual training ensuring all guides a competent and confident to provide the best experience each and every time.
Lake Wanaka provides the perfect setting – a popular kiwi holiday destination; now with world renowned mountain scenery. The view from the shore is only a snap short of what is out there. The silence when you get there is breath-taking, the beauty; mind blowing, and the space to play; uninhibited. Visit us, we are proud to share the beauty of lake Wanaka and have fun while we do it.
We are proud to have been sharing our adventures with visitors to the Wanaka region for over 50 years and our goal has never changed – to deliver outstanding personalised experiences. We understand that visitors aren’t all the same and not everyone likes the same adventures; therefore we have become your convenient one stop shop for a range of relaxing scenic outings to high adrenaline experiences.
Times vary with the seasons. In winter on a fine day you can expect to find us down at the lake front from 10am to 4pm Tuesday -Sunday whereas in the peak of summer you can find us there every day 9am-6pm.
We recommend sunscreen all year round and dressing for the weather, but for information specific to your trip check out the FAQ on your specific activities page.
Yes, if you are planning to arrive in time for a trip then it’s best you let us know
Sometimes guests arrive underprepared for their trip, checking in early allows time for us to recommend another layer, return loose item to your car and ensure you are ready, also some trips have a waiver to read prior to departure. The trips leave on the hour and can not wait; for those who turned up on time and ready for their trip, it is unfair to make them wait longer. If you arrive in time for your trip but not ready to go, i.e. not dressed appropriately for the weather, you may not be allowed to board.
There are lots of parks along the lake front but please allow time to find one, especially in the peak of the season as there may be a shortage.
No, you can safely take your own camera on most of your activities and our crew are nearly always able to take a moment to take your picture, you only need ask.
You can still book and be placed on the waiting list; we will get in touch and see if we can make arrangements to you on the trip you want.
