We did the 25 minute jet boat ride and it was amazing. Our guide Josh was excellent and really enjoyed the little details he added during the ride as well as the local information he provided. This was a great warm up to see if you can handle the hour jet boat ride. Highly recommend doing this and if you go during winter time to bring gloves !!

We agree.... it is far more enjoyable if you dress to the conditions. Josh is great, I will pass on your kind words to Josh.

Thanks again for choosing to come with Go Orange

If you would like a slow stroll over the lake, do this. If you are after an adrenaline rush, DO NOT DO THIS.

It was slow. VERY SLOW. No thrilling turns, the spins were average, and again very slow.

We did the hour ride, firstly we booked for 10am but they had moved us to 11am without reaching out to us first, which pushed back our plans for the rest of the day.

A lot of the jet boat is just driving straight with 3-4 spins which were not thrilling.

I would recommend shot over jet boats for a more thrilling experience.

This was the worst activity we did while in Queenstown. Wasn’t worth the money.

It was ok, not worth the $$$

Nice little cruise on the lake with a few splashes and spins... just another Queenstown money grab in my opinion.
