The perfect luxury cruise, mid-week or weekend escape with Discovery River Cruises.
The Two Night Cruise is two days of endlessly changing scenery from riverlands, wetlands, farming communities and historic sites to discover. It is a blend of history, culture, nature and adventure with an escape that can be as active or as relaxing as you choose.
Take in a bit of bird watching, fishing, read that book that has been collecting dust or "jacuzzi your day down the River" - the choice is yours. Evenings are filled with the peace, romance, and privacy of being on one of New Zealand's most scenic rivers. Or perhpas your evenings are a bit livelier - again, the choice is yours.
