Owner description: THE ULTIMATE ADVENTURE. Discover Queenstown’s untouched and pristine wilderness during your authentic jet boat journey along the historic Kawarau and Shotover Rivers. Thunder Jet’s trip takes you down an exclusive section of the Kawarau River that is only accessible by helicopter or jet boat! Experience the exhilarating adventure of a whole hour of world famous 360° spins, skimming the water at exciting speeds of up to 90kmph, going the furthest distance of 44km, and delightfully complemented by our storytelling commentary. We have the longest time on the lake for the most economical price. Thunder Jet’s trip is 1 WHOLE HOUR on the lake and also down the Kawarau or Shotover Rivers! Not just that but we are also the only jet boat with music on board!

I booked this ride through Bookme.
Didn’t had much hopes as last time I did Shotover jet.

But my expectations were over exceeded as we had driver Rama who was amazing and gave us multiple 360 degree spins and took us all the way to the river.

We absolutely loved it. Give this a try for sure and I bet you will be moved with the ride.
