Lakeland Queen

“All aboard” the impressive Lakeland Queen paddle steamer for their 1-Hour Breakfast Cruise on Lake Rotorua. Enjoy a delicious international breakfast buffet, choosing between 7am or 8am departures, while you enjoy a wonderful scenic cruise and take in the beautiful views of the lake, Mokoia island, and the surrounding countryside. The Lakeland Queen also departs daily for lunch and dinner cruises.


Expose the kids to an amazing cultural experience for an evening — tour through the Mitai Maori Village’s bush setting, marvel at the glow worms, and watch your traditional Maori hangi dinner being lifted from the ground, Maori warriors paddling a waka, learn about Maori protocols, carvings and ta moko tatto art, Maori weaponry and combat coupled with the grace and beauty of the poi dance, and a spine tingling haka finale.
