We came of the jet boat and my 11 year old son said; "That was super fun!" Thank you Michael and Amanda for the great trip. It was well organised, safe and super scenic. It was fun for the whole family and the service and organisation were top notch.

Could not stop grinning for the whole trip. Our expectations were pretty high and we were not let down. The trip was scenic and thrilling, I saw areas that normally I wouldn't know existed. Felt safe during the trip and the driver was confident and informative. Highly recommend taking a trip.

In the opinion of all three of us, the speed and thrill was not quite as extreme as expected - but we have driven race cars and other things before. The setting is unbelievable, so scenic and amazing fast flowing river Clutha. All was well organised. Boat... More

This was an amazing way to gain another perspective of Wanaka, and see the crystal clear water of the Clutha River up close! As well as the excitement of a fast paced jetboat ride, our driver Michael was very informative about the areas history and surrounding mountains. A great activity for all ages and well worth the money!

This place is right on the lake front with easy access. We hired bikes for 2 hours but after a while we decided we needed longer and so just gave them a call ( their number is on the bike) and we were good to go. They do all sorts of hire and trips from here. The staff were super... More
