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.
