Pedal Your Way Around LAKE WANAKA

Want a cheap fun way to get out on Lake Wanaka? At Lakeland we have the perfect answer. Our Aqua bikes are a great way for the family or friends to have a bit of fun on the water.


Very stable and safe to use for all ages there is no doubt you will be having a great time on these! The brightly colored big wheel bikes allow you to sit high above the water, ensuring you get the best view of all the sights and activities the bay has to offer. These are far easier to operate than a normal bike and simple to manoeuvre. There is a low risk of you getting wet, but our staff will still ensure you are fitted with a lifejacket before giving you a short safety briefing and sending you out onto the lake.

The bikes are designed for up to two passengers but can also be ridden solo, giving you the option to race your friends on a bike each. If you are looking for a fun spontaneous activity, this is for you!

"First of all I want to say that the staff will alone sets this jet boat experience apart from any others! Jeremiah really knows his stuff when it comes to Lake Wanaka, the surrounding areas and the history. Seeing the lake from the shoreline can’t beat this thrill of a boat ride around the lake and onto the gorgeous turquoise blue water show of the Clutha River- I would recommend it to anybody visiting Wanaka!"


Trip Advisor

"Last week I went on a Jet boat trip with there guy’s! The team is very friendly and professional. Because they work with smaller groups it feels like a personal trip. The trip takes you along a beautiful river with a lot of hidden treasures and history. I would recommend them if you want to experience a unique Jet boat ride in New Zealand!"

"First time on a jet ski, and it was great. I didn't want to give it back! Very easy to operate, but exciting to ride on. We went out onto Lake Wanaka and visited one of the bigger islands, where the guide gave us an explanation about the history. We were free to experiment on the jet ski and try different moves, as well as going fast! Well worth doing, and am thinking about getting one myself now!"


Trip Advisor

"Hired kayaks from the lakefront $30 each for 2 hours and worth every cent. Beautiful low key way to see the lake. We paddled slowly around the shoreline to waterfall creek and back with lots of time to stop along the way."

Kylie O

Trip Advisor

"What a neat experience! Was super-friendly and fun, the boat was fast, the river was beautiful, and we learned a ton about the area during this ride, amidst the thrills. The Clutha is not a narrow-gorge river, so the excitement comes from running rapids and close to smooth-beach shorelines, as well as the gorgeous water itself. A full hour on the water, super-chill, with a terrific explanation of area history, the boat itself and its workings, and the river. Both fascinating and adrenaline pumping."

Doug D

"I couldn't recommend this activity highly enough. By far the best part of our trip to wanaka! Jeremiah was a fantastic guide taking us to some beautiful parts of the lake that you wouldn't see any other way, all while having great fun on the jet skis on the way!!"
