Jet Boat Queenstown

16 January 2020


We had such a fantastic time out on the jet boat. The staff were friendly and professional from the very beginning and our driver, Dani, was fantastic with great local knowledge as well as clearly being a fantastic driver of the boat! Would definitely recommend as it’s so much fun

"So much fun"

I had so much fun on the jet boat from start to finish! Crazy speeds, 360° spins, beautiful views and great staff! Special thanks to our driver Chris for being such a legend and to Elliot for his friendly welcome! I will definitely be back!

"Wet weather fun"

It was raining when we visited but didn’t let that stop us doing activities!
We chose the 25min tour, it was great fun and I am normally anxious on rough seas but not on this.
We did quite a few 360’s and a tour of the area as well. Got a bit wet but nothing too bad.
The teens loved it. Definitely a must when visiting Queenstown.

Great Fun

Did the 25 minutes ride which is fine to experience a jet boat but doesn’t go into any river gorge if that’s what you want. Absolutely loved it and would do it again in a heartbeat! Waterproof covers provided and all easily arranged and organised. Full on fun!

Fun ride from start to finish!!

We did the 25 minute jet boat ride and it was amazing. Our guide Josh was excellent and really enjoyed the little details he added during the ride as well as the local information he provided. This was a great warm up to see if you can handle the hour jet boat ride. Highly recommend doing this and if you go during winter time to bring gloves!

Beautiful & Central location

Beautiful scenery. The staff at the kiosk and the man in charge of the boat were very friendly and professional. Kiosk is in central Queenstown so very easy to find. Highly recommend.

Best money I spent on 25 min of thrills!

Easy location down on the wharf.
Our driver was great. Felt safe and secure.
Exhilarating and fun!

Lots of beautiful views and you feel like you could almost take off!

We were looking at other jet boats and just couldn’t justify spending such high prices and were so happy with our go experience!!!
I could have easily done the 1hr!

1 hour of Fun and Sun!

I wasn’t totally keen to do this but decided to be a good wife and went along with a smile. It was super fun! A gorgeous sunny day- got a bit wet but only because of the turns! It was a blast and Tom, our driver was great! A gorgeous river fun and totally worth it!

Famdabadozy ride

A great ride in windy conditions on lake Wakatipu and the river Kawarau. It could not have been better and more exciting Daniel the driver was excellent and we had a series of 360 high speed spins longside the 90 kph speeds. Well worth the monies spent.

A scenic jet boat ride with amazing views on Lake Wakatipu!

I did the 25min boat ride yesterday and it was really cool! Fun, nice scenery and a super cool driver (Sam was awesome!!!). I highly recommend it for family who don't want something too scary but still fun and not too long!

Our first time on a jetboat was an awesome experience! Our skipper, Levi was great. He went through the safety instructions before we took off. He was funny and gave a hell of a ride with spins and turns that made the experience really memorable.

"Worth doing in Queenstown"

Fab way to see the outskirts of Queenstown via Lake Wakatipu and Shotover river and an area you would otherwise not see. Excellent mix of fun but also time to admire the beauty of the area. Very trusting and skilled driver :) must do in Queenstown!

"Harley made our experience"

My partner and I went on a jetbot ride the past weekened and we loved it! If you're here in Queenstown for a couple of days and are looking for an activity to do but you're on a low budget, jet boat riding is totally reccommendable! It's affordable, fun and you get to see a bit more of Queenstown in a way that is otherwise inaccessible. 
Harley was our driver asnd guide and he was amazing! He made us spin but checked on us everytime, he gave us interesting information about the area and was overall lovely.
Thanks Go Orange and Harley for the ride, it was great fun!
