We had perfect weather, a fast boat and an amazing driver. The boat skimmed over rocks and sediment in just a few inches of water and came so close to cliffs we were sure we were going to crash into them. We screamed, we yelled and had a wonderful time. We think this is the best jetboat ride in Queenstown and highly recommend it.
Excellent jet boat ride! Our driver, Wayne was simply great. We are in our mid 60's, and had no problem with the sudden shifts and swerves. It was so much fun that we almost took another ride only 19 but were constrained by time. We thoroughly recommend this ride.PS wear a beanie or scarf if its cold, because you will end up with cold, wet hair.
My second time on the shotover Jet and it didn't disappoint, the driver was great and we had a fun time.
Just a great time ...well worth the money .. It'll bring many laughs and smiles on your face.
Just Do It !!!
This is better than any E ticket ride. Very exciting, impressive canyons and beautiful clear clean water. Driver was outstanding. It was 25 minutes of non-stop thrills. Highly recommended and worth the price of the ticket.
Great fun trip. Lots of 360's with a skilled driver who was also very entertaining. Afterwards we enjoyed lunch at the peaceful cafe.
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.
A thrilling experience not to be missed. Skillful thankfully!! and friendly staff.
What an experience everyone has to do this while they are in Queenstown!
My 8 and 12 year olds sons loved the jet boat ride- even though it the snow that was hitting their face felt like bullets and they were freezing cold. The jet boat captain was friendly and informative. He has amazing skills to weave in and out so closely to the river's edge- which thrilled and terrified my kids! We enjoyed how long this event went and the pick up shuttle bus saved us having to worry about how to get there.
Exhilarating experience....worth every penny and a must do. Puts all the other jet boat rides in the shadows.
Awesome it is a must do in Queenstown our driver was fantastic how he manouvers through the rocky cliffs
AMAZING just do it
took our 11 year old granddaughter on her fist trip to Queens town from Australia this was her favourite part . well done.
Location of the shotoverjet is amazing. Staff were excellent and our ride was exhilarating. If your after a rush go for it. Head to Arrowtown after for a chill out.
