It's thrilling AND educational
One of the unique things about Glacier Explorers is that you enjoy the thrill of a boat trip speeding across the Tasman lake AND you learn about the splendour of Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park from a professional guide. Take a breath-taking ride in one of our custom-made MAC boats and in between bursts of speed you’ll learn about glaciology, geology and the impacts of climate change in an informative, interactive and approachable way that will leave you hungry to find out more.
If it can be hard for you to get your kids to enjoy educational activities, Glacier Explorers could be the happy balance you’re looking for.
Fun for all the family
The boat trip is suitable for pretty much everyone. It’s worth noting that children must be aged four and over due to health & safety/insurance reasons, however we do warmly welcome and encourage all children who are old enough to participate! Those participating must also be able to walk 1.5kms in 25 minutes, as this is the distance from the Blue Lakes car park to the jetty. It’s a beautiful walk, and is very achievable for most people, however we do ask that all guests can comfortably manage this distance within the 25-minute window to ensure our trips depart on time.
