Fun experience, lots of spins and a bit of history chucked in. Not as extreme as I was expecting, quite pleasant. Got to see a bridge bungy on the 11am tour. Sit at the front... read more

Fun experience, lots of spins and a bit of history chucked in. Not as extreme as I was expecting, quite pleasant. Got to see a bridge bungy on the 11am tour. Sit at the front if you want to avoid getting drenched. :) The location of this place is a little hidden, so arrive early to give yourself time to... More

Been on these before, only lasting for 15 minutes, but this lasted for 35/40. Not only did they do the twists & turns ( got sooo soaked!!) there was information about Auckland Harbour thrown in. Totally awesome!! Do take a change of clothes Do take a hairbrush

Julian is a great guide. He points out all of the interesting things in the harbour and has some good jokes along with it. Spinning around is just fantastic!! Sitting in the back will get you drenched. Some people have said it is hard to find... it isn't just ask directions in the Maritime Museum if you need help.

I'd always wanted to try Jet Boating so I booked this while on a short break in Auckland - it was everything I expected, fun, exciting, thrilling and very wet ! And you will get wet - even though the crew will outfit you in a big yellow slicker (and life vest) it's no protection from the drenching that comes... More

Wasn't sure what this would involve but after a few minutes realised that one would involve getting wet. Saw a bit of Auckland by the sea but enjoyed the speed and being spun around and had a great laugh.

Was a very cool experience. I received a voucher for a birthday present last year and finally redeemed it now. Can't remember the drivers name but he was very friendly and had a chat to everyone - pretty funny too. On our return journey we even stopped for a few mins under the Auckland Harbour bridge and watched a buggy... More

My family and I ook the Auckland Jet Boat Tour this weekend and absolutely loved it. We managed to stay dry for about 2 minutes but luckily had a change of clothes waiting for us in the car. The weather wasn't amazing but at least there wasn't a massive chop on the water. Our tour took us under the harbour... More

We purchased vouchers through grab one and had to make a phone booking. We had an absolute blast on the harbour with our driver being very informative about Auckland as well as quite safety conscious. We did 3 360 turns each way and got up on a plane as the harbour was quite flat. Sitting in the back of the... More

We purchased a Grab one voucher for this adventure ride. I was able to easily book by phone once in New Zealand. We arrived with plenty of time and were greeted by very friendly staff including Julian the driver. As I had previously done a similar jet boat ride in Queenstown I was looking forward to an official photograph of... More
