If you are in Queenstown you can’t miss it! It’s so much fun, spinning and driving fast through lake Wakatipu and the Kawarau river. You have the opportunity to see amazing landscapes of the area around Queenstown. It’s an amazing way to visit Queenstown from the lake and have fun! The guides explain you about the boat and the territory and are always ready to answer your questions! For more fun sit on the font or on the side seats!

This company offers 1 hour or 25 minutes thunder jet boat ride. The boat driver was simply outstanding. It was a great experience overall. The only reason I did not give them 5 stars was because of the receptionist at the counter, who did not offer discounted pricing, which I had obtained through a third party. I didn’t have time to argue with her. Several tour companies all round the world cater to acceptable discounts just by mentioning. I had even shown the entire discount description on my mobile phone, which she refused to honor.

I did this with my parents who are in their 70's it was great fun and half an hour was plenty of time as it was very cold. This was great value
A few more spins would of been good.

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.
