Western Bays Scenic Escapade – Waihora to Kinloch


We will take you on a full day Scenic Lake Cruise & Kayak Tour around the Western Bays, kayaking to and admiring majestic waterfalls, and towering cliffs . This is an amazing way to explore great Lake Taupo.

To begin our adventure, will depart from Kinloch Marina by boat across the pristine waters of Lake Taupo to the remote shores of the Western Bays. Along our journey take in breathtaking scenery by boat, kayak & foot, admire majestic waterfalls with water that cascades straight into Lake Taupo, spectacular bays surrounded by lush bush, towering cliffs and crystal clear waters. Jump in or sunbathe on the shore whist listening to the soothing sounds of native birds. After relaxing on sweeping sand beaches we will kayak past unique volcanic landscape and the spectacular towering vista of cliffs, a solid wall of rock rising high above and plummeting hundreds of feet below. The Western Bays Scenic Escapade is a truly unique experience.
