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

We took our 7 year old niece while visiting Auckland. She had the "best time of her life". It was fun and totally different to the river jetboats in Queenstown. The only disappointment was that we stopped to watch a bungy jump off the harbour bridge. That was cool, but the wait killed the mood. We just cruised back to... More

I would recommend this to everyone who loves a bit of a thrill! It was so much fun, the jet boat driver was great - very entertaining and friendly. If you want to get very wet like I did, sit at the very back of the boat. Stunning views of the harbour! The girl we brought our tickets off was... More

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.
