RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
Float down the beautiful Lake Manapouri on a scenic jet boat ride, featuring unsurpassed scenery and a blissful nature walk through the Fiordland National Park. Then, hop on your e-bike and ride at your own pace along the picturesque Lake2Lake Cycle Trail which hugs the river's edge.
Upon arrival, you'll be fitted into your lifejacket and your bike before embarking on a short coach ride through Southland farms to the Queen's Reach boat ramp. On board the jet boat, you'll travel down the Upper Waiau River to Lake Manapouri experiencing high speeds and 360-degree spins along the way, as well as unparalleled scenery. Spot trout in the crystal clear waters, be soothed by birdsong, see three film locations featured in Lord of the Rings and savour your absolute solitude as your guide stops and turns off the engine for a moment. You'll then head ashore for a short nature stroll through the Fiordland National Park, learning about the flora and fauna and local conservation efforts before some more jet boat action. At the jet boat tour's end, your e-mountain bikes will be awaiting your arrival. Enjoy an easy ride along the newly-formed Lake2Lake Cycle Trail back to Te Anau, which hugs the river's edge and showcases stunning views of Lake Te Anau.
Maximum of 11-13 participants per boat. Biking is self-guided.
Please dress appropriately for the weather and wear sunglasses and sunscreen.
This experience takes place on Lake Manapouri and departs from Te Anau.
