Central Otago Mirror - - FEATURES -

Clutha River Boat Cruises in Cen­tral Otago is a unique way to cel­e­brate a spe­cial day out or a mo­men­tous oc­ca­sion.

Hosted by Steve, a self-con­fessed gold nut, whose pas­sion for the area is vir­tu­ally un­ri­valled, a tour can be se­lected from the ex­ten­sive range al­ready on of­fer by the Com­pany or they can be fully tai­lored to meet a client’s re­quests cater­ing for ev­ery­thing from cor­po­rate func­tions, through to par­ties and school trips.

It’s a fun way to en­ter­tain clients, farewell col­leagues, cel­e­brate the end-of-year, or do some­thing very im­pres­sive to high­light a birth­day, an­niver­sary or fam­ily re-union.

The Clutha River Boat cruise com­pany also fea­tures Her­itage, Ed­u­ca­tional and Wine Tours de­part­ing from Alexan­dra, and trav­el­ling down the mighty Clutha on ei­ther the ’Ne­vache II’, a pon­toon craft that pro­vides a quiet, sta­ble and ex­cep­tion­ally smooth ride or aboard the won­der­ful new ad­di­tion to the fleet, ’Mata-Au’ a tri-hull with its ex­pan­sive deck space and mu­sic sys­tem that is suit­able for large par­ties and is ca­pa­ble of seat­ing up to 34 peo­ple

Both of the fully-li­censed ves­sels which are used, are easy to board, have un­ri­valed view­ing for great pho­to­graphs and pro­vide spa­cious and com­fort­able seat­ing suit­able for all ages.

Opt­ing for a Her­itage cruise en­ables Steve to share his pas­sion for the area’s vi­brant gold his­tory while for the younger folk, Steve can pro­vide ed­u­ca­tional trips with fully sup­ported and in­ter­ac­tive learn­ing sheets, pro­vid­ing an ex­pe­ri­ence that the kids will talk about for years. Or maybe a unique ap­proach to the Cen­tral Otago wine-trail is de­sired, with a Cruise and 3 Vine­yard Tour an op­tion with a dif­fer­ence that en­ables Cen­tral Otago Wines and lunch to be sam­pled and en­joyed, ei­ther on board or in a lo­cal res­tau­rant.

And if the great out­doors is your pas­sion Steve will de­sign a tour to suit your de­sires, pro­vid­ing fully equipped fish­ing trips, camp­ing or pick-up and drop-off for tram­pers along the river trail.

Clutha River Cruises has great cater­ing op­tions avail­able for the jour­ney, from gourmet an­tipasto plat­ters to sump­tu­ous BBQs to taste as the stun­ning Roxburgh Gorge is cruised, trav­el­ling past many his­tor­i­cal points and past the re­mains of huts which were built into the nat­u­ral rock by gold min­ers in the 1860s.

The only op­er­a­tor on the mighty Clutha River, as fea­tured with Mar­cus Lush on the New Zealand Chan­nel ONE "South" pro­gramme, a Clutha River Cruise pro­vides the chance to step back in time, jour­ney­ing into the his­tor­i­cal am­bi­ence of the spec­tac­u­lar Roxburgh Gorge and dis­cov­er­ing the area’s vi­brant gold min­ing his­tory.
