Enjoy a different look at Rotorua on-board the Lakeland Queen, the only stern wheel paddle boat and large cruising vessel operating on the iconic Lake Rotorua. With two deck levels that can accommodate up to 200 seated guests in comfort, the cruise offers a truly unique dining experience.

The Geothermal Lake & Dining Cruise options include Breakfast, coffee, lunch and sometimes dinner options. Departing from the Rotorua Lakefront visitors can enjoy spectacular lake views only accessible by boat including the mystifying geothermal area of Sulphur Bay with its milky white lake water, the bird sanctuary of the volcanic rock lave dome known as Mokia Island and reflective views of the city centre. The outdoor viewing platforms on both levels allow for fantastic photo opportunities.

The delicious buffet lunch offers something for everyone, from local fare to more exotic selections as well as gluten-free or vegetarian options. After lunch relax with a complimentary cup of tea of coffee and take in the views while making your way back to the Lakefront.

Lakeland Queen will take you up close and personal to some of our natural wonders and our unique landscapes and features full commentary and full bar services.

* Please note that you are required to print the email confirmation of your booking to present as your boarding pass on arrival. You will also be required to show photo ID and the credit card used to make your booking.

  • Very friendly and welcoming staff. The continental breakfast was very nice but the cooked breakfast was not up to standard. Bacon looked to be over processed, not like the bacon we have in the Wairarapa. Suggest you try the Beehive bacon. It is beautiful. Apart from the cooked breakfast the cruise was lovely. 3

  • We enjoyed the cruise, the breakfast, and the commentary. I also appreciated the offer of going upstairs due to tourist numbers and potential noise downstairs. However, that was all part and parcel of the experience. Thanks very much. Great value for money. 5
