Experience 60 minutes of unforgettable thrills, spins and exhilaration across three waterways in one of the world’s most stunning locations on a Kawarau Jetboat in Queenstown.
Jet across the crystal clear Lake Wakatipu at breath-taking speed, taking in the majestic mountains and mesmerising scenery. Then zoom under the Kawarau Dam onto the deep green waters of The Kawarau River, complete with lots of 360° spins.
The next adventure on your Kawarau jet boat begins as your driver navigates the fast-moving currents of the narrow braided Shotover River, racing up the shallow channels at speeds of up to 85 KPH in water that’s less than 10cm deep in places.
Finally, you return your Kawarau jet to the Queenstown pier for a complimentary view from Queenstown’s Underwater Observatory.

The organisation and communication were first class. The flexibility in travelling to the destination was impressive and the hotels where we stayed in were all of a good standard. Our Coach was driven by Ken, who was a character and nothing was too much for him.
Mr & Mrs Hall, Magnificent New Zealand
We both enjoyed the Magnificent New Zealand holiday immensely. The Coach Driver/Tour Guide was excellent and the hotels were really comfortable. The holiday was extremely good value and I would recommend it to anyone waning to taste the Antipodean holiday experience.
