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!
Hi Simon, I just wanted to thank you for helping me fulfill a long term dream in shooting a trophy elk. I couldn't be happier with the end result – definitely one of the only animals I've ever shot that doesn't suffer ground shrinkage as you get up to it! It just got bigger and bigger! A lot of amazing country was covered in the two days it took to find him - couldn't have done it without your help!
This is the second time I've been hunting with Cardrona Outfitters and it won't be the last (don't tell my wife that though)! Feel free to share my comments as I'd highly recommend you to anyone considering going to NZ hunting!
