Good ride, nice driver, ride was a little limited in scariness, mostly spins, due to the width of the water way. Highlight was getting a water view of Huka Falls. But this is not the shotover!

We took our girls (Aged 9 & 11) and couldn't get the smile off their faces for the next few hours. Great ride, just the right amount of time, with excellent commentary from our friendly driver, Sarah. The Huka Falls were amazing and really enjoyed...More

A great wee excursion for the mild adrenaline junky. If you aren’t seated right up the front be prepared to get very wet, perhaps bring a spare change of clothes.

The people from Hukafalls Jet picked us up from our motel and dropped us back afterwards. They took care of everything for us.
