Taxi Cat is a locally owned and operated company that has a passion for offering experiences to the untouched, hidden oasis’ found within the Western Bays of Lake Taupō.
They have a range of adventures including the Taupō Bay Blast which is the ultimate, spontaneous sightseeing trip and is up to you which way you want to go! Are you wanting to see the Maori carvings, or do you want to cruise along the waterfront and get a coffee from the Steaming Bean? In summer, this trip also includes a half an hour swim in the crystal blue water of Lake Taupō.
Their Western Taster is a popular option if you only have a short amount of time. This 90 minute adventure departs in Kinloch and is all about exploring the waterfalls that for the most part are only accessible by boat. We highly recommend this one if you only have a short amount of time but want to truly experience beautiful Lake Taupō.
The Western Bays Adventurer is our personal favorite and even as locals it took us to places we had never experienced before! From Karangahape Cliffs to a picnic in Te Papa bay, it truly is the icing on the cake of your holiday. This is up to a 3 hour adventure and also includes paddle boarding if weather permits.
For those of you who have come to Taupō for something a little more adrenalin based, Taxi Cat offers shuttle services for bikes and kayaks to some of Taupō’s most remote places.
