  • Thrilling 60 minute jet boat ride
  • 360 degree views of Kawarau and Shotover Rivers

Embark on a wild ride on the Kawarau and Shotover Rivers. You'll experience 43km of pure adrenalin across beautiful Lake Wakatipu and two stunning rivers. The high powered, twin engine jet boat will take you on 360 degree spins, exciting turns and thrilling speeds!

What's Included?

  • 60 minute wild ride on the Kawarau and Shotover Rivers
  • Free entry to Queenstown Underwater Observatory
  • Use of life jacket and spray jacket

Enjoy 60 minutes of unforgettable thrills, spins and exhilaration across three waterways in one of the world’s most stunning locations. Firstly, your twin engine jet boat roars across crystal clear Lake Wakatipu at breath-taking speed, surrounded by majestic mountains and mesmerising scenery. Then you zoom under the Kawarau Dam onto the deep green waters of The Kawarau River, complete with lots of 360° spins.

Next the adventure heightens as your driver navigates the fast-moving currents of the narrow braided Shotover River, racing up the shallow channels at speeds of up to 85kph in water that's 5cm deep in places. Finally, you return to the pier for a complimentary view from Queenstown's Underwater Observatory, where photos from your trip can be purchased and you can get up close and personal with fascinating rainbow trout and lake-life. Join in for an hour of exhilaration and a lifetime of thrilling memories. Driven by over 50 years of passion, this provider is locally owned and operated, and proud of its heritage.
