The trip was more of a scenic boat trip on the lake with a few spins thrown in. We were so disappointed. Have been on a thrilling jet boat in the past and this was nothing like that. Driver was really friendly though. Definitely not worth the $139 it cost us. Save your money.

Date of experience: December 2019

We went on the 25 min ride, and enjoyed every second of it! This was so much fun, and very safe, the skipper drove very well! I would definitely go again, maybe even the 60 minute one next time!! Definitely recommend!!

I had so much fun on the jet boat from start to finish! Crazy speeds, 360° spins, beautiful views and great staff! Special thanks to our driver Chris for being such a legend and to Elliot for his friendly welcome! I will definitely be back!

My wife and I decided to have another go at Jet boating after having a similar ride on one in Wanaka.

What drew us to this one was rather than 1x 6.2 litre V8 with 300 horses, you get 2x with 800 horses

We had a great time and the boat sped across the lake and down a river, with some high speed turns and 360 spins thrown in!

I must admit, the smaller boat at Wanaka was alittle more fun as it was more nimble and could be chucked around a lot more. But nothing beats the sound of 2x V8’s, and it was super quick

Well worth the money!

It was raining when we visited but didn’t let that stop us doing activities!
We chose the 25min tour, it was great fun and I am normally anxious on rough seas but not on this.
We did quite a few 360’s and a tour of the area as well. Got a bit wet but nothing too bad.
The teens loved it. Definitely a must when visiting Queenstown.
