The Karapiro Cruiser is no longer operating.  We would like to say a big thank you to everyone that has cruised with us over the years.

Come and cruise on the calm waters

Make the most of Lake Karapiro's beauitful scenery and charter the Karapiro Cruiser for your next event.   You charter the boat (this includes the skipper) and then bring your own delicious meal and refreshments on board with you.  If you don't want to do the food yourself you could get a caterer to supply it for you.  We have a great caterer that we work in with, click here for their details.  

The Karapiro Cruiser is a great venue for any event from corporate functions, special occasions to theme nights all while enjoying the most beautiful scenery Waikato has to offer.

The Karapiro Cruiser is a modern 50-foot catamaran pontoon boat specifically designed for lake and river cruising and is ideal for groups wishing to hold an extremely unique occasion. 


It has an upper deck which is the prefect place to just sit and relax while enjoying a nice glass of wine or beer or just watching the magnificent, ever-changing scenery pass you by.

The Karapiro Cruiser is surveyed to hold a maximum of 40 passengers. We depart from the Karapiro Domain, which is only 5 minutes south of Cambridge on Maungatautari Road. 

Please board 10 minutes before departure time and please disembark within 10 minutes at the end of your cruise.  

So come and enjoy a charter cruise with us. This is an experience you do not want to miss out on.  Let Lake Karapiro and the Karapiro Cruiser set the mood for you...
