We had a brilliant time on the Buller Canyon Jet. Mark is an excellent skipper and keeps the whole thing very exciting. He ensures you have plenty of opportunities to fly along at high speeds, whilst also offering opportunities for pictures. Would thoroughly recommend stopping off at the Swingbridge for the Jet if you’re driving to/from the West Coast for an exhilarating trip!

We had a great trip down the river with Mark. We were lucky enough to really have a private tour and I have never laughed and screamed so much at the same time. Mark was a great guide and not only did we have fun but we also learnt new things. My son loved being able to steer the boat for a bit (albeit safely). Would highly recommend this to anyone.

We had a wonderful time on the river with Mark. The weather wasn’t the best but the river, jet boating and Mark were great. The kids were screaming with excitement, laughing at Mark’s jokes and smiling with joy the whole time. Thanks for an awesome adventure

An Easter getaway with the family. Decided to visit the Buller Gorge park and at a push went on the Buller Gorge Jet boat. So glad I did. All 6 of us loved every minute of the boat ride. Mark is funny, informative and a great driver. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend.

This is by far the best jet boat experience, you get the thrills of blasting along the river, while also seeing amazing scenery and learning about the river and the historic gold mining. Mark the driver was amazing, he is very friendly, passionate and made the whole experience feel very personal. I would highly recommend that anyone going near the Buller gorge should stop/detour to experience this amazing jet boat ride.
