Jet Boat the Mighty Shotover River in Queenstown

Are you a speedster? If so then speed by Queenstown in a super quick jet boat driven by expert riders, with lots of other excited thrill seekers. Experience the joy ride of your life along the stunningly magnificent Lake Wakatipu, surrounded by lush and vast valleys and shores of serene splendour. You will see all the best sights in record-breaking time!

Where can I find the meeting point?

Queenstown sits by Lake Wakatipu so you will first head there and the exact location is provided on the map below with the postcode, which you can input into your sat nav.

They will also teach you about the area at high speed with their perfectly knowledgeable guides. They will also provide drinks and canapés, a BBQ lunch, a cooking masterclass, or even wine and cheese tasting at their private riverside location on Kawarau River upon request! A really special and unique treat is getting to see an authentic New Zealand greeting upon arrival – the haka – like a slightly menacing dance show that tribes today still practise ritually.

  • $79 for 1 hour
  • Contact them for special student pricing and flexible departure times
  • They will arrange to meet at the airport and coaches, and luggage transfer to your hotel while you jet across Lake Wakatipu
