Santa Cruise

Sunday 16 December 2018 1pm – 2.30pm

Boarding at 12.30pm

A family-focused cruise sure to bring the joy of Christmas to life.

Father Christmas will make an appearance on this 90 min cruise along the Whanganui River, bringing with him a sack full of presents for children under the age of 12.

Over the years the man in red has had difficulty navigating his reindeer and sleigh onto the Whanganui River and the Waimarie Paddle Steamer. He has chartered the use of a locally-owned Waka and Helicopter in the past – what mode of transport will he acquire this year?

Please note tickets for this cruise can only be purchased at the Waimarie Centre and not online.

When booking, please supply name, age and gender of children attending for Santa’s gift bag.
