    So glad we chose this experience over the other jet boat experiences overall. The driver Matt was so cool! Gave us some background knowledge about the area, had some great jokes and stories, was a PHENOMENAL driver and truly made our jet boat experience one to remember.

    On arrival we did have to wait at the door for about 5 minutes with no staff to greet us despite arriving at the time they told us to be there to check in, yelling out and knocking several times. Went from no staff to all of a sudden 5 which annoyed us from the outset.

    Our driver Matt truly did save our experience overall. Hopefully if you go, you get him! He’s awesome!

    Scenery was amazing, river was stunning and the route they take you on is beautiful. Such a fun way to spend a day!

    Went to Queenstown for our honeymoon and as was my first time just had to go on the KJet. We booked the combo with the Helicopter trip. Staff were very accomodating when the weather wasnt good enough for the Helicopter and rebooked for the following morning. We were still able to do the Jet Boat right away.

    Both the helicopter and Kjet was great. The speed and the 360 spins were a highlight. Awesome scenery. Highly Recommended!

    Booked this event through Orange. Meticulously executed safety’s with nothing left to chance. Super lucky with a brilliant blue sky morning. The ride out on Skippers Canyon road was a hair raiser but well negotiated by our driver.
    I did a solo trip but was in with a great group of one other solo and two couples. Awesome rafting guide.
    The only suggestion would be to put go pros on the guides so the experience could be captured.

    We had a great experience with our first jet ski hire. Seth was friendly, told us what we needed to know & unleashed us to enjoy speed on the lake. Loved it
