My partner and I went on a jetbot ride the past weekened and we loved it! If you're here in Queenstown for a couple of days and are looking for an activity to do but you're on a low budget, jet boat riding is totally reccommendable! It's affordable, fun and you get to see a bit more of Queenstown in a way that is otherwise inaccessible.
Harley was our driver asnd guide and he was amazing! He made us spin but checked on us everytime, he gave us interesting information about the area and was overall lovely.
Thanks Go Orange and Harley for the ride, it was great fun!

My girlfriend and I had a fantastic time travelling down the Kawarau River with Thunder-jet. Our driver was really entertaining, and the views of the Remarkable’s and Lake Wakatipu from the boat were spectacular.

My wife, son and I managed to bring our dates forward from tomorrow afternoon after some bad news means my wife has to fly out tomorrow morning. Thanks for being so accommodating!
Our pilot/skipper, Harley, was entertaining and the ride itself covers some pretty stunning territory on the Kawarau River. The views of the waterfront homes and the towering Remarkables are gorgeous. Plenty of 360 spins and closeups of the banks, willows and logs along the way. It’s pretty cold, so wear a jacket at least, and expect to get a little wet.
Overall, an enjoyable 1hr trip, that was worth the money.

Scored an excellent deal with bookme for our family of 4 , $50 each for the hour ride and it was so much fun, not as exhilarating as the Shotover as the river is quite wide, but for the price it was excellent value and would recommend a spin on the Thunder Jet whilst in Queenstown
