Our minimum age is two years old, maximum, well we don’t have one so bring your Nan, you Mum, Dad, Aunties and all… We will even look after furry friends while you adventure down the Kawarau River.

Epic drivers

We handpick the best of the best, just for you. Our guides are highly trained, legendary and know how to spin a yarn as good as they spin a Jet Boat. They will show you their awesome backyard, drop in some valuable local info and give you the chance to ask all those burning Jet Boat questions you may have.


Water, water everywhere! We operate on one lake and one river, joining together for the best Jet Boat experience in Queenstown. Did you know that Jet Boats only need 10cm of water to operate so be prepared to skim the shallows as you race over the lake. We do provide spray jackets, just in case the river decides to take a trip home with you.

 A helluva good time

That’s something we can guarantee. Jet Boating is epic. It’s iconic, it’s a New Zealand must do and it’s right here waiting for you in Queenstown Bay.
