Looking for unique things to do in Queenstown then look no further - Hydro Attack is the world's first tour operator of the amazing Seabreacher X watercraft. Operating from our berth in central Queenstown we'll take you on an adrenaline packed tour of stunning Lake Wakatipu. Sit back in our state of the art cockpit and get ready to feel the G-Force as our expert drivers give you an experience you'll not forget. Looking through the F-16 fighter grade glass you will see the sky disappear as your drivers decends into a dive only to then breach the surface and launch the entire 18ft of the vessel in the air. We can roll on a 90' angle, do doughnuts (without getting a ticket) and so much more. Reach top speeds of 80 kph on water and 40 kph underwater, throw in a low center of gravity and this ride will definitely get your heart pumping. So there is only one question left.... How wild or mild do you want to go?
