Weekend scheduled cruises on Waikato Explorer leave Hamilton Gardens at 12.30pm and 2.30pm every Saturday and Sunday. Charter options can be arranged any day of the week on request. The boat is licensed to take up to 87 passengers and has the capacity for up to 50 seated diners. With a fully-licensed bar and a range of menu items, the Waikato Explorer is well set up as a venue for all kinds of events, from club outings to specialty cruises to major events such as weddings, birthdays and anniversaries. It was certainly an enjoyable and novel venue for our BNI business networking meeting. With the river filling a little since the autumn rain came to the Waikato, Darren is able to venture further afield these days. He mentioned Narrows Landing today. Looks like we’ll have to explore our beautiful Waikato River again soon!
