What to Expect
Travel reference:

Discover Queenstown on a jet boat, helicopter and raft with this action-packed adventure!

Your adventure starts with the jet boat experience departing from Queenstown Bay. You'll be supplied with spray jackets, life vest and a full safety briefing before you hop onto the jet boat. Then you'll jet across Lake Wakatipu fitting in plenty of those famous 360-degree spins. You'll skim the shallows at speeds of up to 90kmph while exploring the sheer cliffs and canyons.

Next you'll jump in a helicopter at Skippers Canyon for a 7-minute scenic flight, right above the Shotover river you are about to raft. Land at Deep Creek where your water rafting journey starts. Meet your guide and listen to a comprehensive safety briefing before getting on the raft. You'll raft through peaceful waters at first, soon head towards the exhilarating rapids of the lower canyon. Tackle grade 3-5 white-water rapids and raft the Moana-Roa (Big Water) section of the Shotover River. You'll paddle through the 170 metre long Oxenbridge Tunnel and end on one epic rapid, Cascade. 

After paddling back to base and loading up the rafts, enjoy a hot shower and a cold beer (if you'd like) at the Rafting Base. Then it is time to load onto the shuttle bus and return to downtown Queenstown.
