We decided last minute to do the Jet boat and we were so glad we did! Julian was such a good skipper, cracking jokes and getting everyone involved. We knew we were gonna get wet but didn't think it would be that wet. We were wrong! It was nice to get a different view of the city, i don't think... More

I called this place in excess of 10 times over two weeks after paying for three people. They did not both to call back or email. Ended up going to the place (50 min drive + parking in CBD) to book. On the day, the boat stalled for 10 minutes and we were late "waiting for late arrivals". No refund... More

Exhilarating experience for us and our 2 children. Heaps of 360 spins, amazing speeds and a great tour guide made for a memorable time. Would highly recommend.

Such a great day out on the water with wonderful people who had such great senses of humour!! We had already done the Jet Boat in Queenstown a few years ago so were unsure whether or not to do this one. Completely different experience......Auckland was faster on a lot more water whereas Queenstown felt a bit slower due to the... 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.
