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!
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.
Top Class thrills. Went for the morning ride. Water and weather was cold which added to the fun.
This is the best jet boat ride I have been on.
My family and I came a day early, which they accommodated for. We went once and couldn't wait to do the replay ride 21. It's crazy how fast we went and how close we got to the rocks or trees. I loved it!
An awesome experience - my husband and I loved it! Our driver was very funny and also a master at navigating the boat between the ridges! The 360 spins are awesome. Great organization in terms of pickup and drop off. A very fun thing to do in Queenstown.
The views were astounding, the guides were amazing and the ziplining was exhilarating!
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.
