Jetboat

Experience the adrenaline rush of going 80km per hour, skimming the river below!

Cut corners as turquoise snow melt churns out behind you. White knuckles as the landscape spins 360°. Our experienced drivers will twirl the boat around in just milliseconds. Thrillseekers jet boating is the ultimate way to rocket through the beautiful Canterbury plains whilst absorbing adventure. Buckle up your life jacket, strap in to the boat and get ready to feel exhilarated.

Travelling up the stunning Waiau Gorge, there’s no shortage of excitement on this ride. The boat only needs inches of water and the power of the engine thrusts forward. Drama and action are the stuff of movies – until you ride in a jet boat. This is the perfect adventure for those who like a challenge or want to push their limits.

 
We are running a Family Jetboat special for the Easter school holidays! Tickets are just $249 for 2 adults and up to 3 children*, and the special is valid from 18 April 2014 until 4 May 2014 inclusive.

*Cannot be used in conjunction with any other discount or combo offer
