The part of the Shotover River in which this experience operates is less then 10 minutes' drive from the centre of Queenstown and consists primarily of steep canyon walls, divided by the fast flowing river. The canyons have been carved over thousands of years by billions of tonnes of glacial water from the heart of the Southern Alps. The very grandeur of the river provides an element of excitement.
There is a maximum of 14 people in each jet boat. Minimum of 4 people to run a boat
