Overview

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.

Nice mixture of vegetation creating a tunnel, rocks in the water and cliff faces. Many fish to observe in quiet respites from the bat out of hell scream down the river. Get the video too, which is highly entertaining for yourself and others to watch.
