Enjoy being based in the resort town of Queenstown which sits on the shores of the crystal clear Lake Wakatipu, rowing among dramatic alpine ranges.

We’ve got your safety in mind with a fully experienced tour team to look after you and by using coxed coastal quads, known for their safety, comfort and stability. It’s also about a shared experience – so everyone takes a turn at coxing. You’ll leave with lifetime memories and friendships.

We can’t wait to meet you on our beautiful lakes in Aotearoa.

There are more than a few good reasons why New Zealand’s South Island consistently gets a high ranking in world tourism. While many come to explore our outstanding wilderness walks and landscapes, we take you places that go under the radar – through some of the world’s most extraordinary beauty.

The best of local – it’s our aim to showcase the regional ‘best’ in terms of accommodation, food, wine and local people. We’re a kiwi business, run by kiwis, so know the best environments and have the ability to offer some great alternatives if weather unsuitable for rowing.

We also like to let our rowers do the talking. Read more about what they have to say here.
