Chris and Sue Jolly moved to Taupo from their farming business in the Manawatu to Taupo in 1978 to start a fishing ¿ sports shop business. This led to friendships in the charter boat and heli hunting industries and before long, their first launch Facilita was purchased and Chris Jolly Outdoors started its journey. The last 35 years have been an action packed ride leading now to 5 boats on Lake Taupo, guided fly fishing, hiking, hunting and their latest product guided biking and water shuttle.
Over the years they have entertained royalty- English and Dutch, diplomats, VIP¿s, movie celebrities and put together packages to suit the most discerning clientele. They have been the preferred outdoors supplier to Huka Lodge for the last 30 years. It has been an exciting ¿few¿ years with new challenges and products making this company well respected in the tourism industry.
Son Simon is now the operations manager- skipper/hunting guide/video producer along with his chocolate lab Charlie Brown who is very much part of the team. Daughter Penny has been the advertising guru, social media expert and a great creator of branding and design for the company.
Along with some very loyal and long standing staff they all love sharing the outdoors and helping people enjoy the beautiful part of the country that is Lake Taupo and its surrounds.
