It is a MUST do activity in Queenstown. Superb and unforgotten experience in our trip.
This is our 3rd time been here from Aussie. My elder boy loved it since last time he did with dad back to Jan 2020. I couldn't do as I was pregnant last time.He has pursued me to do with him this time. It was a fantastic ride driven by a friendly driver in a lake with fabulous mount view. The experience was just amazing and unforgotten. We definitely will back to do it again with our other 2 kids.
This was lots of fun for the whole family
This was lots of fun for the whole family. The kids had a ball. Is adults were expecting a more thrilling ride and thought it might have gone longer than 20 minutes given the price we paid as a family. But it was still fun. I’d just be keen to see what the other Jet Boat companies have to offer next time.
This is a must do!
This is a must do! All the staff were great and very friendly. Donald was our Jet Boat driver, he was very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. We went on a beautiful and warm day, however, a beanie and jumper were still necessary. You are supplied with a long windbreaker and life vest, which definitely helps. Your hands are fine as the handrails on the boat are heated. Sunnies also helped to keep the water out of your eyes from the occasional splash. The scenery is magnificent, and such an incredible setting. We had lunch at the brewery right next door. Food and drinks are fantastic. Great day to experience.
