Private Functions

Private charters cater for any special occasion or business function and are available 7 days & 7 nights.

A celebration on board a replica Paddle Steamer, cruising the calm waters of the mighty Waikato River is truly an unforgettable celebration!

We are experts in function planning, and will ensure every last detail of your MV Waipa Delta experience is a pleasure!

You can hire the MV Waipa Delta exclusively, or have your group join our regular scheduled cruise times.

From as little as $50 for an amazing exclusive evening party which includes a 3-hour cruise, delicious banquet and live entertainment or $44 for a group function. Catering is prepared on board by our team of talented and experienced Chefs.

We can seat up to 139 people for a formal meal, or ask us about our continuous finger-food service (taking up to 150 passengers).

If you have a theme or style of cuisine in mind, speak to us and we can make it happen.

We are fully-licensed and boast two fully-stocked bars (on the upper and lower decks) including an extensive wine list.

We have been creating memorable wedding receptions, birthdays, anniversaries, office parties and more for decades. Click here to learn more about a Waipa Delta Banquet menu or Stonegrill dining experience.
