This is a great first time experience for those afraid of rafting, and especially afraid of Shotover. No gopros allowed but They provide complimentary photos via email same evening. Very relaxed River. Great team - Mark and Iko (so?). River was high and rapids were therefore bigger than normal likely causing flips so they made sure we walked around the raft-flipping rapids.

However, if you’re an adrenaline junkie, you should head straight to shotover rafting. I did this one then Iko convinced me to do shotover right afterwards and I got my adrenaline fill!

We just loved it. The best Jet Boat experience we ever had. Highly recommend a full one hour as it covers more area and much information shared during the journey.

Chris was made us all feel safe and relaxed while showing us all the beauty of Queenstown. Would highly recommend this thrilling trip and cannot thank Chris enough for taking the time to show my husband who is a ford enthusiast the two ranger raptor engines that powered this incredible boat.

This was a pretty good Jet boat ride quite enjoyable, nice and fast, even though it was a little choppy on the way back it was pretty good, I would recommend this to anyone.
The driver stan was great and funny, love the spins, almost my favorite part.
