A Queenstown jet boat ride is a must-do during any trip to New Zealand's South Island; zoom at high speed amongst some truly stunning New Zealand scenery with a 1 hour jet boating experience in Queenstown for top sightseeing thrills spread out over an amazing 45 kilometre journey. This extended 60 minute jet boat ride incorporates the best of 3 renowned NZ bodies of water - Lake Wakatipu, and the Kawarau and Shotover Rivers all in one tour. Join your jet boating hosts and board a twin-engine powered jet boat vessel and travel along the pristine waters of Queenstown's Lake Wakatipu surrounded by iconic mountains before heading onto the Kawarau River where the tricks and stunts begin in earnest. Zip over its green waters as your experienced driver performs 360° spins and more while soaking up the scenery.

Next, head into the narrow canyons of the Shotover River with its famously shallow waters as you're piloted between its close, rocky walls at jaw-droppingly high speeds of up to 95 kilometres per hour. All of this adrenaline is conducted amongst the amazing Queenstown scenery that makes the region such a popular holiday spot, and there's a reason there are few spots in the world more famous for jet boating than Queenstown is. One of Queenstown's true must-do experiences, book yourself a jet boating adventure online today.

Will you get wet? Well, part of the fun with Jet boating is the spray and drama! We provide full length spray jackets (with hoods) to wear under your life jacket so you will be kept mostly dry and warm. If you are really worried about getting wet then please request to our staff that you'd prefer to sit in the centre seats of the boat (but please note we can't guarantee seating).
