The jet boat ride is fun and exciting, and you get to see beautiful Huka Falls from a lovely angle and get pretty close. I am a wuss but this wasn't too scarey for me! Service was friendly too.

This is a great way to watch the Huka waterfalls. It was raining when we were doing our ride. A spray coat that comes down to knees was provided. Basically, only our faces got wet. Shoes were not wet at all.
