Hubby and I chose the KJet as the dock is nice and close to town. Our awesome driver Fraser was super friendly and explained everything there was to know about Lake Wakatipu and the Kawarau and Shotover Rivers with a few 360s along the way....More

From experiencing all the jet boats in Queenstown, this one is great because it's the longest jet boat ride taking you through the beautiful Wakatipu, Kawarau and Shotover rivers. There was a lot of 360 degree spins and the driver was really friendly and enthusiastic...More

Good fun and a great way to see the lake Two rivers covered with plenty of photo opportunities. Notice given of the 360 degree turns. Boat driver good but "herded on" the boat initially

This was a fun outing, our driver was very informative about Queenstown and surrounding areas We chose this ride for the longer ride and value for money, may not be as "exciting " as the " well known " jet boat but still highly recommended...More

Fast enough to thrill, enough distance to sight see... good fun for all. Kids: 8, 10 & 12yrs loved it. Well organised operation catering for a wide audience. Older passengers equally exhilarated by the experience. Thanks for a fun afternoon.

It was an extremely enjoyable experience. The driver was excellent - bit hard to understand him at times though.

Hi turoar, Thanks for taking the time to review us. We do try to make sure our drivers speak loudly and clearly but at times we do know it's hard to hear them. We're glad you enjoyed the trip otherwise! Thanks, The KJet Queenstown team

We decided to go on this jet boat after our trip to Milford Sound was cancelled due to bad weather and we were very glad we did. It was amazing fun! It was raining and dull day but it made no difference. Our guide/driver, Tim,...More
