Carved in the 1970s by one of Aotearoa’s master Māori carvers, the Mine Bay rock carvings are a striking Taupƍ attraction. They’re also impossible to access on foot, so hop on board a charming replica steamboat and take a scenic cruise out to the carvings instead. Learn all about the history and the myths behind the carvings from your steamboat crew, and along the way enjoy pristine views of Lake Taupƍ and beyond, including the nearby volcanoes Tongariro, Ruapehu and Ngauruhoe.

* A traveler said: "It was a great way to explore Lake Taupo by kayaking and we could reach out to the Maori Rock Carving. We could come close and took picture. The kayaks were in very good condition. They had steer controlled by foot, and even a small motor that helped us to catch up with the team and saved our energy in return way! It was a small group tour with 8 persons in 4 kayaks. A good size of grouping. It was fun."
