Escape the crowds and discover the magic of Mou Waho Island.

Highlights

  • Spend 1.5 hours exploring the stunning Mou Waho Island
  • Hike up to a hidden lake
  • Relax on secluded beaches

Where you can find an island, on a lake, on an island, on a lake, on an island on the sea!

Mou Waho Island is a protected nature reserve and is home to many native New Zealand birds including the curious and flightless Weka.

A short walk takes you to the top of the island where you will be exposed to breathtaking panoramic views of the Arethusa pool, Lake Wanaka and its surrounding peaks.

Our water taxi leaves Wanaka Marina twice-daily travelling 15km up Lake Wanaka, passing Mou Tapu Island and the steep cliff of fisherman's cove to Mou Waho Island.

Your friendly and knowledgeable skipper will inform you of the fascinating geology of the alps and the glaciers that created the lake as you travel along its sparkling waters.

Enjoy 1.5 hours exploring the Island and hiking to the hidden lake.

Absolutely a must do in Wanaka!

Shylo, our Captain was fantastic and kept us informed with local knowledge about the lake and scenery. The walk to the lookout had the most impressive views over Lake Wanaka, and a swim was fantastic. Absolutely a must do, especially if the sun is shining!

Fnatastic morning!

If you are in Wanaka, this tour is a must. A beaitiful untouched island. You can hear hundreds of birds and it feels like you are a million miles away from anywhere. A walk to the top of the island (takes about 45 mins) will lead you to beautiful views. I would 100% recommend this tour.

Great trip to beautiful island

Great trip out to the island on a stunning day. Wonderful views from the top plus an exhilarating swim in the lake up top. Shilo, our skipper, was very friendly and had great local knowledge. We'd definitely recommend this trip.
