What You Can Expect
Then enjoy one of New Zealand’s most exhilarating and scenically spectacular jet-boat rides! Your jet-boat adventure takes you through the Waimak River one of New Zealand's largest braided rivers. You will blast through shallow shingle bottom river streams and experience the thrills of high speed turns and 360 degree spins. Life jackets and splash proof gear will be provided.
Your scenic journey back to Christchurch takes you from the foothills of the Southern Alps through the rural pastoral scenery of the Canterbury Plains.

We were picked up from our cruise ship on time. Tour of Christchurch was just a quick overview only had 40 min stop in gardens for a walk around. Jet boat ride was amazing we all but had the river to ourselves. I would recommend trip to anyone.
The guides were very friendly, pleasant, good-humoured and knowledgeable. We enjoyed all of the tours.
