This half hour of thrills, fun and excitement takes you along the beautiful Waikato River, lined with native bush, sheer rock cliff face and hot water streams. You’ll travel in one of our state of the art jet boats at an incredible 80km an hour and along the way you’ll experience our thrilling 360° spins. Operating on this stretch of the river since 1990, Hukafalls Jet has an outstanding record of professionalism and safety. Nothing gets you closer to the mighty Huka Falls!

Sorry! Just saw this. They can store your stuff behind the desk in the store. I had a small lock on my bag too. They're trustworthy staff!
