Fantastic jetboat trip and tour. Traveling on small bus with a guides whom provided a really informative & interesting history of Skippers road, gold mining, landmarks and shots used in the Lord of the Rings was great. Followed by an exhilarating jet boat ride also pointing out other Lord of the Rings sites was worth it. Highly recommend this to everyone as its one of the best in Queenstown.

Spectacular experience into Skippers Canyon. The bus drive on the way there is exhilarating as well as hair raising! The views were stunning and the historical commentary both ways was very interesting. And then, the jet boat ride… wow! Water was crystal clear and the driver was fantastic. Perfect mix of scenery and adrenaline - overall would highly recommend the Skippers Canyon Jetboat experience!

We had an amazing experience with the Skippers Canyon Jet boating and the drive through the Canyon. Our driver and guide Gavin was very friendly, knowledgeable and explained the history and the landmark as he guided us through the canyon. This is the 3rd time in Queenstown we have done the jetboating with various other companies but this is by far the best value for money and experience. Highly recommended A+++++
