Escape… Explore… Experience…
Chris Jolly Outdoors have been operating on and around Lake Taupo for over 30 years. This is a family run business that is dedicated to Escape… Explore… and Experience…
Our most popular offering is our daily scenic cruises, where you can take in the spectacular view of Lake Taupo and the majestic mountains of the Tongariro National Park as you cruise to the famous Maori Rock Carvings at Mine Bay.
Our selection of charter boats for up to 140 people provide a superb choice for water based activities such as private cruises, trout fishing charters, weddings, conferences, incentive groups and social functions. We also specialise in creating bespoke packages for guided hiking, fly fishing, hunting, helicopter wilderness experiences and scenic excursions around the Great Lake Taupo region.

We had such a great time. Everybody loved the trip and we would like to do it again. We loved the fishing, the shooting, the BBQ, the friendliness and knowledge of the staff and Charlie brown is cool. We had such great weather as well. We have already recommended this trip to everyone in our company as something to do when in Taupo. Thanks so much for having us!Sarah Middleton
I would like to extend our gratitude to Simon, Ali, Emma and of course Charlie Brown for providing a fantastic day on board 'Supercat' yesterday. The Taupo staff fishing trip is a highlight in our calendar this year. The Claybird shooting, fishing and the dinner was fantastically organised and appreciated by all and we landed two Rainbow trout!Neill Ross
I wanted to send a quick note to thank you and your fine team for looking after our team. We all very much enjoyed our cruise and I might add the weather that day certainly enhanced the overall experience! It was very good to cruise aboard Waianiwa again and I have to say she is a grand cruiser! We will keep in touch and look forward to working together again.Patrick Bourke,
