Experience the unique beauty and calm waters of the Waikato River and travel through the heart of the Waikato on the Waikato River Explorer for your next corporate function or event.

The Waikato River Explorer is a great option for corporate events from product launches and client functions to staff dinners and incentive rewards.

The Waikato River Explorer is a purpose built vessel with capacity for up to 54 seated diners. Panoramic windows will allow your guests spectacular views of the riverside scenery and the opportunity to experience the Waikato from a unique perspective on the water.

Charter the whole vessel and enjoy a relaxing cruise for an hour or two up New Zealand’s longest river. We offer a great range of menu options to choose from including canapés through to a gourmet BBQ lunch or dinner with all our barbeques cooked on board. We have a fully licensed bar offering a range of alcoholic and non- alcoholic beverages as well as tea and coffee facilities.

We can design tailored cruises for your next corporate function including specialty wine tasting tours or unique destination trips up to Mystery Creek and beyond.
