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!
Hunting in New Zealand with Simon from Cardrona Outfitters truly was a hunt of a lifetime, from hunting Fallow bucks in the beautiful Cardrona Valley, to hunting Chamois and Tahr up in the majestic Alps of the west coast!
The food and lodgings were first class, and Simon is an amazing guide. His knowledge and experience hunting world class trophies is second to none!
Thanks again mate for the incredible experience you provided, it was a hunt I will remember and talk about forever - I'm already getting excited planning my trip back with Cardrona Outfitters next year!
