Why Travelers Choose This Tour
Riding a jet boat from the airport to your hotel? There's no question this experience adds the wow factor to an airport pickup. For those with limited time, it's a great way to squeeze in an adventurous activity during your visit to Queenstown.
You’ll understand why Queenstown is coined the world’s ‘adventure capital’ when you kick off your arrival in adrenaline-pumping style with this private jet-boat transfer to your hotel — a memorable start to your vacation.
Meet your guide at the Queenstown airport arrivals hall. Once your luggage is loaded onto a coach departing for your accommodation, you’re escorted to a jetty adjacent to the airport. Settle into your private jet boat and feel the thrill of roaring down the milky green Kawarau River as the expert captain fishtails the boat into 360-degree spins.
The river feeds straight into Lake Wakatipu, which you’ll whip into at high speed. See towering Mt Nicholas and the Remarkables mountain range, which provide a scenic backdrop against New Zealand’s longest lake.
On arrival at the Queenstown dock, you’re accompanied on foot to your downtown hotel or transferred by coach if you are staying a bit further away.
Price is per person, based on nine adults per jet boat.
