Discover Rotorua on a 1.5-hour duck tour. This sightseeing adventure takes you aboard a World War II amphibious vehicle — able to travel on land and water. Start with a city tour past Government Gardens, the Blue Baths and more before splashing down into Lake Tikitapu (Blue Lake) and Lake Okareka. Enjoy family fun along the way with a provided duck caller, and listen to live commentary about Rotorua’s history and local landmarks.
What to Expect
Start your duck tour in central Rotorua, where you’ll board an authentic WWII amphibious ‘duck’ that traverses land and water. This 90-minute adventure for all ages is the perfect introduction to Rotorua and offers entertainment for the whole family.

Watch Rotorua's history unfold as you ride past top landmarks and other highlights including Government Gardens public park near Lake Rotorua — punctuated by Mokoia Island; the thermal attraction of Geothermal Sulphur Point; the elegant Rotorua Museum (Te Whare Taonga o Te Arawa); and the Blue Baths, established in 1931.

Hear live commentary and anecdotes about Rotorua’s past, and continue your tour with a splashdown into Lake Tikitapu (Blue Lake) and Lake Okareka. You’ll visit a lakeside community where the duck's elevation affords magnificent views of Mt Tarawera before returning to central Rotorua.

Fun times!

Great trip! Nick was a great guide and driver. Totally worth doing! The commentary was great. Really enjoyed going on the water and it was interesting watching what he did each time we changed over from water to land and back again.
