NZ in winter?

3 Nov 2009 Big Serg asked

Just wanted to get some feedback on the Grand Explorer trip. We want to go in June, but how is the weather? The trip has lots of things to do in the water, but won't it be too cold for that? Do you think it is worth it to go in June? (both of us don't ski). Any feedback would be great! Thanks!

    Hi Big Serg. I am from NZ and maybe I’m just soft but i would never get in the water in Winter!! That water is straight off the snow! It gets pretty freezing here in Winter.

    It would depend on the activity though and where you are. There are plenty of people who do it!
