We took the 60 minute trip from Queenstown wharf down the Kawarau river and back. The experience was as advertised and very enjoyable. The thrill factor was missing so if a nice boat trip across the lake and down the river with a few boat spins is your thing then this is perfect, if you are looking for the thrill and rush of getting up close and personal with the gorge then the Shot Over Jet is a better choice.

I wasn’t totally keen to do this but decided to be a good wife and went along with a smile. It was super fun! A gorgeous sunny day- got a bit wet but only because of the turns! It was a blast and Tom, our driver was great! A gorgeous river fun and totally worth it!

We did the 30 minute option which brought us down the Karawau river. Lots of fun! Plenty of twists and turns, and great views that you can't explore from the car.

We had so much fun on the 1 hour jetboating ride with Levi. It’s fast, loud and exhilerating and the scenery is incredible. We loved the 360’s, but be prepared to get a bit wet! All part of the fun!!!
