Taupo Cruise with Catering

Catered boat hire or good old BYO – you choose!

Aboard Ranui you make the rules with regards to your water activities and the same holds true for food and beverage. For Hen’s or Stag parties, functions or client entertaining you may prefer your Lake Taupo cruise feature catering, but on a mates’ day out, family fun day or birthday celebrations the BYO option is generally more popular. BYO is a great way to keep costs down while still enjoying the nautical adventure of a lifetime.

Bring your own food/prepared meals, snacks, nibbles and beverages (adults over 18 are welcome to bring alcoholic drinks) for a one-off fee of just NZ$50.00. This covers glasses, plates, napkins, cutlery, platter trays, clean-up and rubbish removal. Easy-as, Kiwi-as.

Catered boat hire options on board Ranui are listed below – if you’re after something different, please enquire.
