  • What a beautiful lake. We went across the lake on our way to Doubtful sound. Each trip was outstanding on Real Journeys, a beautiful boat. The scenery was outstanding with snow on the mountains. The lake such a wilderness area.
  • Large lake with the power station in the West Arm. Lots of remote beached accessible by boat for a lunch getaway. Always quiet with so many areas to explore. Clean water, practically drinkable. On a fine day, it can be a Haven for wildife. Good places to take photos, too.
