Looking for unique things to do in Queenstown then look no further - Hydro...

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?

These little semi-submersible boats are great fun and a unique experience that I have never seen elsewhere. My driver was professional and friendly, and happy to answer all my questions.

Done all the usual adrenaline activities and saw this beast on the lake and had to do it. It's a tight fit but very exciting - bit like a jet ski on steroids. Loved the video but certainly could be improved with alternative views like a few forward facing shots or even outside shots with a second or third GoPro... More

What a great thrilling experience! Something you have to do when in Queenstown- worth every dollar. The staff especially my driver Adam were easy going with a great sense of humour! You deserve your cookie Adam 👍

Saw this by chance on a recent trip to Queenstown and decided to give it a go. I am so delighted that I did. The team who ran it were so friendly and enthusiastic and really added to the experience. The experience itself was awesome! Felt very safe but got a great adrenalin hit and it felt like we were... More
