We decided this Jet boating company as it was the most reasonable priced. Found on the main pier, lakefront. We walked down and booked on their little kiosk. Not sure if you could book elsewhere for cheaper. Online deals are good if done in advance....More

Loved the K-jet boat ride along the Shotover river yesterday! Definitely recommend this product as you get to go on 3 different rivers with lots of spins and adrenaline! Added bonus is that you get in free to the underwater observatory after!

After a terrible experience with trying to book with Shotover Jet, we ended up on the KJet that leaves from town. We thought this was great value for money while also getting to see the 2 rivers and the lake. You are on the boat...More
