Really cool activity to do around Taupo. I was there when the water level was very high, making the Hukafalls very impressive. The jet boat ride was loads of fun - spinning, speeding, and great explanations. Loved our driver and his enthusiasm!

The Hukafalls jet boat ride was fast, full of 360 degree spibs and the obligatory soaking from the water. Our driver was very experienced and made the trip very enjoyable. A must do in Taupo

The jet-boat ride was awesome. It was made better by Steve, the jet-boat pilot, who gave an enthusiastic running commentary. The ride took us from the Dam at the end of the reservoir up to the Hukka Falls.

Yes. We left things locked in the car, but the staff are very helpful and would likely be willing to store for you.
