Loved this jet boat experience with it's 360 degree spins, bouncing along the water, getting only a little bit wet, exciting winding around bushes and near to rocks. We felt we were in safe and very experienced hands. Terrific fun!

Good experience with The Huka falls team, have been on a few jet boats these guys were able to perform great turns and take you pretty close to the falls.

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