Welcome to Taupō Pedal Boats. Located on the beautiful shores of Lake Taupō, we are a water activity rental business, family owned and operated, established in February 2021.

We are proud to have New Zealand's only slide pedal boats, 4 water bikes, stand up paddle boards and kayaks for rent, a totally unique way to see Lake Taupō. The water is pristine, the views are gorgeous, and your family will love you for bringing them out to visit us! We have no age restrictions, everyone is welcome.


You can find us on Wharewaka Road, a 5 minute drive from the town centre, heading south toward the airport. Bring a picnic and park up for the afternoon. 

We can't wait to see you!


Our 4 aqua trikes are suited for up to 3 people - 2 adults and 1 child, or 1 adult and 2 children. These tractor like bikes are fun and easy to operate while you pedal your way around the beautiful Wharewaka, Lake Taupō.


They are a great activity for all ages and makes for some pretty cool stories and photo ops! Round your friends up, hire two and have races on the water! 

Although there is no age limit for kids, to go without an adult you must be 10 years old. We supply lifejackets for all ages, from baby to adult.


Max weight 200kg. Please note - prices are per boat, not per person.





The first and only of their kind in New Zealand, our brand new pedal boats, equipped with slides for the kids (or without) are just epic!

We have 3 of these awesome boats, one with a 'big slide' you'll fly down the corner slide into the water with a splash, better suited for kids a little older (or brave little ones), one with a 'small slide', a little more mellow down the back of the boat, landing in the water right next to the ladder, this one is suitable for younger kids as well. The last boat is perfect for those who want to enjoy the lake without the slides, and has a sun shade on the top... along with a platform - perfect for manus!

All ages welcome, lifejackets provided for everyone. Kids, you must take an adult if you're under 12.

The weight limit is 365kg per boat (up to 5 people), and 100kg for the slide.

Please note, prices are per boat, not per person.



$20 for 1 hour

We have 7 SUP's which are suitable for children and adults. They are easy to operate and a fun way to explore the Lake. Easy for beginners, although you may get wet! They are a great activity for all ages and makes for some pretty cool stories and photo ops! Paddle about, or just relax on the water. 

We supply life jackets of all sizes.


Max weight 180kg . Please note - prices are per SUP, not per person.



$15 - $25 for 1 hour
