We jumped on the Hukafalls jet not quite sure what to expect and were absolutely thrilled! It was great fun and the skill of our driver was amazing and he had a great sense of humour! It also gives you a fantastic view of the Huka falls from the bottom which is quite impressive. It’s only a short ride at thirty minutes but you definitely get your money’s worth along with a lot of laughs and a good soaking!

This trip was our first time to Taupo, what a great place for families to visit, so much to do! We saved this to last and it was hands down the best way to end our trip. Our driver Jimmy was awesome, so skilled at what he does! I was a bit nervous going to it but it all quickly turned to 100% excitement and adrenalin onboard and seeing the Huka Falls so close up was incredible. Whole heartedly recommend.

We LOVED this ride, it is high speed, lots of spins and thrills navigating obstacles in the river. It was wonderful to see the stretch of river between the Aratiatia dam and Huka falls, the falls themselves were a real highlight, it was great to get so close. People of all ages were in our boat and everyone looked like they were having a blast. Our driver was skilled and humourous and really added value to the trip. We’ve done a few jet boat trips in different locations and this is one of our favourites. It isn’t cheap, but we felt we got value for money and would do it again. Having done this and the Rapids jet boat in Taupo on a previous visit - this one is far superior.b

Chopper was awesome. Had a great sense of humour and kept us smiling from start to finish. Talented driver, kept us on the edge of our seats wanting that next 360. Only negative-it had to finish! Will be back!!

Thanks for the review Monique. We might not tell Chopper - his ego is big enough already!!
