Reach lightening speeds during this action-packed jet boat ride along the Waikato River. You'll hold on tight as your highly-trained driver squeezes through the narrowest section of the river and plays in the pressure waves of the Nga Awa Purua rapids, with plenty of spins thrown in along the way.
Experience all the spills and thrills of jet boating during this 35 minute ride on the Waikato River. After hopping on board the custom-built boat, your highly-trained driver will give you a quick run down of the beautiful river you'll be floating on before taking off. You'll shoot through the narrowest canyon on the Waikato River, ride in the pressure waves of the Nga Awa Purua rapids (river of springs) and experience multiple twists and turns. Your driver will reach speeds of up to 90km/h, so don't be surprised if you get the odd splash of pure Waikato blue over you!
Pregnant woman cannot take part in this experience.
Maximum of 11 adults or up to 14 children per boat.
Footwear must be worn and bring a change of clothes in case you get wet.
Photos are available for purchase after the ride, payable on the day.
This experience takes place on the Waikato river, just outside of Taupo.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
