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.

What a great family ride for everyone to enjoy, it was very well organised from shuttle buses to jet boat ride, Our driver had a great sense of humour and put everyone at ease, would definitely recommend this to everyone to do as it runs through narrow parts of the river, Some of the other boats only go on the lake which isn't as exciting

Very well run and efficient operation. Get plenty of spins and high drama moments on the 25 minute boat trip. Good quality capes and life jackets provided.

Great price here, amazing experience--don't leave Queenstown without doing it. Can't comment on the other jet boat companies, but I believe this is the only one on the Shotover River through the canyons. Picture and videos were also great prices!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2016

This is a high speed blast! If you're going to Queenstown, then go to the best jetboat right in New Zealand. Everything was great, the driver was a lot of fun, and we had a really good time!

Awesome! The boat goes super fast and comes really close to the canyon walls but our driver was so friendly and professional, we all felt totally safe the entire time. It was a great way to see experience the Shotover River and take in the beautiful canyon views. The spins were a blast, too!! Would definitely do this again.

This is definitely a MUST DO in Queenstown! Whew hoo! SPECTACULAR. One advise - BRING GLOVES AND A BEANIE. The wind chill and cold canyon is FREEZING. At one point during the 360 turn, water got into my ears and gave me a migraine because it was SO COLD. Otherwise, FUN TIMES!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2016

This is the second time we have done this and both times it has been equally exhilarating and one of the best rides anywhere in the world. The morning was spectacular so the views were stunning and the splashes on the face refreshing. Most importantly Jeremy our driver was very good and what he does which is a huge confidence boost! Safety is taken very seriously and their operating record speaks for itself. If you only have time to do one ride In Queenstown then do this one. Close to the city and yet out in the wilderness.
