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.

Thanks Karen, nice to hear your parents enjoyed the trip, it really is a great experience that doesn't take up your whole day :)

We went for morning ride. We were provided over- coats and life jackets. Then they take you around the river. There are 360 degree spins in between.

Will recommend any one doing it to wear sunglasses (as strong wind is gushing against your face, its difficult to keep the eyes open otherwise).

Good as a one time activity. Slightly over priced in my view.

Everyone in New Zealand should definitely do this. GO jeatboat gives very good value for money. One hour of excitement, wholesome family entertainment.

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.

The jet boat is good fun but it's one of those things, once youve done it once you probably wouldn't do it again because it is quite pricey.
