In between the high speed ride and fast spins, you'll stop in some quiet and tranquil spots, to soak up the amazing surrounds, spot a few brown and rainbow trout in the crystal-clear water, and learn about the unique environment and fascinating history.

Suddenly, find yourself out on the breath-taking Lake Manapouri. Surrounded by mountains that have been carved by snow and ice over centuries, experience a sense of wonderment as you gaze at the magnificent mountains and sit in awe of their sheer beauty.

Surrounded by the stunning Cathedral Peaks on Lake Manapouri, you'll transfer straight from the jet boat to the float plane for an unreal 15 minute scenic flight over the magnificent Kepler Mountains! Finish it all off with a landing back on Lake Te Anau with an experience you'll never forget!
