Alan Baxter has been running this unique cruise for 18 years. After many years of fishing holidays in Wanaka, he moved to the iconic fishing spot in 1999 to operate a fish and cruise business on the lake. 18 years later and many satisfied clients of all ages from all corners of the world – and that passion is still there.
The cruise includes fly fishing, trolling or spinning, exploring the islands, the bush and beaches. Winter, spring, summer or autumn, Lake Wanaka is a magic part of the country to explore and enjoy. They supply all equipment needed for fishing, including sunscreen onboard for those hot summer days.
If you are taking a scenic walk, ensure to bring good walking footwear and a jacket for those cooler days. Wear warm clothing for winter fishing trips. Tea & coffee is also included onboard plus muffins & biscuits. Most importantly... don't forget your camera!
Awesome experience! Everything about the trip was first class and exceeded all my expectations. I would not think of going to New Zealand with anyone else. Simon went out of his way to attend to everyone’s needs and ensure that they had a memorable trip. The game animals were plentiful and Simon made sure that everyone had great opportunities to take the trophies they were after. I highly recommend Cardrona Outfitters and Simon Hawkins for your New Zealand hunting experience.
