Overview

    What to Expect
    Select from several departure times at booking and head to the jet boat base in Hanmer Springs to board your powerboat. You'll experience the ultimate ride with a skilled driver at the helm, who maneuvers the jet boat down the Waiau River. Speed over white-water rapids and through steep gorges while the boat negotiates the narrow river channel.

    Skim over the crystal-clear waters of 6-inch-deep (15-cm) riverbeds through braided shallows and hold on tight during 360-degree jet spins while you attempt to take in the scenic river views during your 30-minute adventure.

    Efficient checkin arrangements, and helpful and considerate quad bike transfer to river level for me as a 63 year old with mobility issues.Gav was extremely knowledgable about the location, and gave us an adrenaline charged rush down, and back up the river.
