What You Can Expect

Shotover River Extreme Jet Boat Ride from Queenstown

Shotover River, Jet Boating

At your chosen time, hop aboard a complimentary shuttle bus in downtown Queenstown, New Zealand’s ‘adventure capital.’ After a short ride through New Zealand’s once-thriving gold country, you’ll arrive on the shores of the Shotover River to embark on your high-speed jet boat ride. While the trip lasts only 25 minutes, it’s sure to be the thrill of a lifetime!

Hold on tight as the driver expertly navigates the jet boat over white-water rapids and squeezes through the narrow canyon walls of the Shotover. You’ll pass sheer cliffs and rocky outcrops, then feel your adrenaline pumping as the boat makes trick maneuvers, twists and turns. Once back on firm ground, relax on the shuttle transfer back to Queenstown. Souvenir photos are available to purchase.

This was a fantastic thrill ride. The drivers are so skilful and scare the hell out of you but they know exactly what they are doing. You go quite a way down the river about 8 km and on the way there and back you weave in and out of canyon just missing rocks. Then there's the 360 spins!!

The Shotover Jet was absolutely exciting and kept us engaged through the entire 30 minute session. The driver was highly experienced, with fast spins and brilliant maneuvers. The kids loved it and we would highly recommend this to anyone who loves a great enticing ride on a lovely canyon!

This was one of the most exciting trips we undertook, the speed we travelled at, the spins and turns we made by the jet boat are incredible, and finally the we get very close to the rock face. It is a great fun afternoon.
