    What to Expect
    Make your way to the Auckland Ferry Terminal for a safety briefing, then put on a provided spray poncho and life jacket before boarding the jet boat for your 40-minute ride. Hold on tight as Auckland’s fastest jet boat accelerates with incredible speed into Waitemata Harbour. 

    Feel the adrenaline rush as you race down the harbor at speeds up to 62 mph (100 kph). Your expert driver maneuvers the vessel with amazing agility and performs fishtails, 360-degree spins and power brakes throughout the hair-raising jet-boat ride.

    Watch landmarks of Auckland’s city skyline whiz past, including the Sky Tower. View the Harbour Bridge and the Hauraki Gulf volcanoes in the distance before you’re whisked back to shore.

    We went on Auckland adventure jet today, Nate was our skipper. He stopped every so often to make everyone was ok. Don’t do what I did and not take a change of clothes, every single piece of you will be wringing from head to toe. The 180s were so much fun. A good water sport for
