Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuun!! Big night Thursday...early morning jet boat ride on Auckland harbour Friday. Best cure for a hangover. It was cold, it was wet but it was huge fun.

After rocking up to the docks and waiting around to give them a call to find out where they were.... they hadn't informed us the boat wasn't working. Then after 3 months I still haven't recieved a refund after countless emails and phone calls

Great fun day out at JetBoat Tours. I wore the overalls they provide and stayed bone dry but a little cold. The guys that run the trip are great too. Definitely recommended.
