Lake Tarawera Water Taxi & Eco Tours
Lake Tarawera Water Taxis & Eco Tours offers access to some of the most beautiful areas of Lake Tarawera as well as providing guided eco tours. Our eco-tours are based on our role as “Kaitiaki” or guardians of this area. We take our responsibility seriously. We look after the land and water and participate in many local conservation programmes, including tree planting, pest control and the monitoring of endangered species. We also have DOC (Department of Conservation) concessions to operate in the area. The taxi is owned and operated by David Walmsley. David’s skilful handling of the 14-seater, all-weather boat is matched by his knowledge of the area as he delivers a short history and cultural lesson pointing out many sites of interest.
