Both our van driver and jet driver were professional and fun. The jet boat is a great time and the ride out is a great plus.

Amazing!! More than just a jet boat ride. The whole experience including the van drive into Skippers Canyon was incredible. This must be the best jet boat adventure of all in the region, scary and enthralling with such amazing scenery. A big thanks to the amazing team, especially Rob and Craig.

Exciting trip with adrenalin rush on the drive through the narrow road to the jet boat and then again on the boat. Must do trip if visiting Queenstown.

honestly - this was the most awesome experience ever. Our driver Willy was amazing with his knowledge of the area and mostly excellent jokes :). Craig was ridiculous in the jet boat and gave us the best ride ever! I'm amazed that these guys will have done the trip a 1000+ times, but still made us feel like their first and most important guest. Totally loved the trip!
