It was our first time out on Lake Taupo and I think this is by far the best way to get to the Maori Rock Carvings and explore the lake. The scenery is amazing, especially the snow capped Tongariro mountains as the perfect backdrop. We were so amazed at the intricacy of the Maori carvings. The highlight for the kids was feeding the ducks by hand from the top deck of the boat. They couldn't stop buzzing about it! A highly recommended trip with Chris Jolly Outdoors.

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!

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! We will keep in touch and look forward to working together again over what is shaping up to be a more positive summer season.
