Do not miss out doing this! This is by far the best money I have spent while being in Queenstown! We went on the hour trip, and still felt like it wasn’t long enough! We got off the boat absolutely drenched but with grins ear to ear! Sit in the back row of the boat for great views but it also guarantees you leave the boat with Lake Wakatipu and the Kawarau River drenching your clothing from the 360’s!!! Truely amazing trip, and worth paying the hour for! This would be even more amazing during winter!

Excellent service from the start. Arrived on the Tuesday and inquired about the Jet Boat, the girl on the desk was extremely helpful (she was Scottish so I had no doubt :) ) On the day we arrived ten minutes before and were welcomed and waited no time before we got on the boat. Any questions we had were answered well and nothing was too much trouble. Sat in the front and had the best time. Our driver was brilliant, always checking if my 7 year old was ok (which she was!!) 360's were brilliant, history and views, excellent. We did the hour and I'd recommend that as it went really quickly anyway. Keep up the good work Go Orange :)

Fantastic trip with a great guide/captain, which makes all the difference. The 25minute option was great for young kids, while still providing a bit of thrill. Hold on tight! Having done a few different jet boats in the area this was up there with one of my favourites. Highly recommend.

We had the most epic time! We had our 4 yo son with us and we didn’t think he would last the 1hr trip (we were right) but it promises some excellent views.
Our boat driver (I can’t recall his name) was very funny and had a lot of knowledge of the area.
We have been on the Kawerau Jet in the past and I can hands down say I enjoyed this trip more!

We’ll definitely be back again.......without child 😂

Thanks so much team!

We really enjoyed our time on the jet boat. I wish we had enough time to do the full hour we enjoyed it so much. It was a range of ages on the boat and the driver communicated well with everyone and still made the ride fun for all ages. Dress warm as it can be chilly on the water. Would definitely do it again

We came to go-orange after a disappointing interaction and a let down with the opposition Kjet ( they were useless). The guys at go orange were awesome, Fran made it easy despite saying initially there were no more runs today ,and made it happen even though there were only 5 of us with an easy negotiation so it was a win - win. The driver Tom was really good, and we were off within 15 mins! Really great team to deal with and a fun jet boat ride despite the weather being cold. Thanks heaps guys you really made the kids day- GOORANGE!!!
