An awesome experience. Have jet boated before this is by far the best so far. Incredible scenery and Mark was a great host. Very safety conscious and passionate about the Buller Gorge. Loved every minute of the 40 minute trip

We howled, we laughed, we screeched. Mark is a riot. From his sense of humour to the phone in his pocket playing Dire Straits (good one). Super driver. Super knowledgeable. The 360s never get old. Mark, you rock brother.

Wow from the moment we arrived to the end, we were infatuated with Mark and the experience he created! His character truly brought a ton of fun to the ride! This isn’t like any other jet boat that’s offered in NZ, it’s non commercial and without the 30 extra tourists! It’s a personable experience where you’ll be promised laughs and a get to know you experience, not to mention you can actually hear the guide and engage. Mark was an incredible host that was knowledgeable about our surroundings but knew were to draw the line with history and show us some fun at the same time with 360 degree turns and full speed at the narrowest points, he truly did not disappoint! We thoroughly enjoyed our time with him on the river. This was definitely a highlight of our time driving down the west coast! We would recommend this trip to anyone passing or coming through! Mark you are one incredible dude and we are so happy to have had the opportunity of meeting you!Thank you heaps, love Steph & jase!

We did this jet boat tour with Mark today. It was a great trip with excitement, nature talk, currents, fun, and some great talking about the local river. Mark is a great guide and save driver. Very knowledgeable.
I did the jet boat tour in Queenstown last week and this one is very different. Queenstown was a very commercial operation and very focused on excitement. This tour is more balanced and giving a broader experience (and also longer, more personal, for a cheaper price)!
Highly recommended!

Mark was just so welcoming, knowledgeable on local history and we had a great adrenaline rush with the jet boat spins. Outplays the big commercial guys in Queenstown. Thoroughly recommend for the Kiwi Experience but addicted to the thrills.
Thanks #BullerCanyonJet
