As a family of ten including a set of grandparents, a four and six year old and two older teenagers we were travelling on the beautiful road from Nelson to Punakaiki. We decided to pullover at the next place for lunch and that just happened to be the swing gorge. That lunch ended up being 3 hours long! And I think it was the best unplanned visit we did throughout our entire trip although my husband thinks the helicopter at mount cook just pipped it... but I had far more fun on the jet boat.

We did the swing bridge which was lovely and walked round the site and bumped into Mark aka the pirate. We did a good deal with him and he made this adventure epic. It was 40 minutes of screaming, laughing and adrenaline. Mark was very professional but also hilarious. Thank you so much for this experience Mark I don’t think any of us will forget you.

This was not on our itinerary because we didn’t know about it. I hope if anyone is travelling the same road as we did they get to stop and experience this thrill.

Thanks again Mark x

The Buller River is spectacular and Mark from Buller Canyon Jet made sure we had the best experience. He is a true professional with heaps of knowledge about the area and one hell of a character. Think the Steve Irwin of New Zealand! Best fun - don't miss this one!

My husband booked this in advance for our trip, Mark was a really great guy, he was personable, funny and knowledgeable about the area. The ride was really fun and fast but also had a bit of cruising time to appreciate the scenery. I loved it, and would encourage anyone thinking about this to go for it, and prepare to get wet!!
Thanks Mark, we had a great day!

My husband and I stumbled upon this while passing thru Murchison on a motorcycle trip. Totally last minute decision. Boy are we glad we did it. Super fun. Mark is awesome and drives the boat with fineness and experience. We loved it! You won’t be disappointed!
