We wanted to do the shotover jet but it was closed due to the weather so we were recommended Go Orange. I can't remember the name of the Aussie guy who took us out on the ride but he was great. The boat ride itself was also awesome, lots of 360 turns, weaving around. I especially loved the pumping music which gave it a great vibe. We were glad we did the hour long boat ride, was a lovely way to see the scenery as well. We were a little worried about motion sickness but had none at all. Also a tip is to wear contacts instead of glasses as you do get a little soggy.

Thanks for a great experience!

this was awesome, so much fun, took MIL as well and she enjoyed it a lot! The driver was fun, and the 360 turns were awesome, got wet but it was a sunny day and dried out fast, Best one yet!!

Me and my partner booked the 25 minute tour relatively last minute but we had an amazing time! It was very fun and ran very smoothly. The driver of the jet boat was very friendly and put people at ease immediately. I wish I had done the hour session really but initially I thought it would have been way to long! If you’re in 2 minds, book the hour session as it does fly over. Very fun and would definitely recommend.
Plus the guide does little photo stops as well which was a bonus.

On what was quite an inclement day with rough conditions on the lake, our jet boat driver made feel extremely excited about our trip, but more so made us feel extremely safe! She did an amazing job getting us to sheltered parts of the lake so we could experience the thrill of the 360 turns and speed in a Jet boat! Would thoroughly recommend Go Orange jet boats!
