Upon arrival at the Blue River 8A dock departure point, look out for staff who will point you in the right direction. Before the cruise begins, you can choose some music and also tell the captain how quickly you would like the boat to go. The boats are custom designed, New Zealand-style water taxis capable of transporting up to 12 people.
