Just a short stroll away from the town centre of Cambridge you will find the beautiful Riverside Park and our departure point. On the Waikato River, a.k.a. the Mighty River, you will experience a jet boat ride unique in New Zealand. The scenery is breathtaking while your experienced driver will tell you all about the historical facts of the monuments you pass. If you are into speed and adrenalin we can fulfill that need too! Our jet boats are perfectly well equipped to give you a ride you will not easily forget. V8… need I say more? You will have to hold on! The famous "360 JET SPIN" will certainly see to that. Camjet is also an ideal event for your business functions or team building sessions. We will provide something you will talk about for a long time! For these group activities we can combine with other local activities to offer you a full day of entertainment in the Waikato. For group bookings we offer discounts.

Great fun, really good value, kids were buzzing after this. You get to see parts of the river and its inhabitants that you wouldn't normally see because the banks are so steep between Cambridge and Karapiro. We caught a glimpse of a giant (Catfish?) as we stopped to check out the fish.

An excellent way to get the adrenalin running and the heart pumping. If you think your asleep or dead inside then take a ride. With a variety of tours from a leisurely cruise up to the dam and back or a heart stopping race with 360 spins, this is a must do for anyone aged 10 upwards.
