What to Expect
Travel reference:

Come on the world's most exciting jet boat – the famous Queenstown Shotover Jet!

Prepare yourself for the ultimate jet boating experience and an adrenaline rush you'll never forget. From the moment the accelerator hits the floor, you'll speed over 10cm deep water, along the famous Shotover River and deep into the spectacular Shotover River Canyons.

As the Shotover Canyon walls tower over you, your expert driver will put the Big Red Jet Boat through its paces. At 85km an hour your driver will skilfully whip the powerful boat past rocky outcrops, skim around crags and boulders, and speed through the dramatic and narrow canyons. Rock faces blur in your peripheral vision and the water sprays into a myriad of white water crystals with every turn. Early-risers, choose the Sunrise Jet option to get the first ride of the day.

Book your Shotover Jet boat ride today and get ready to hold on tight!
