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.

Had a fantastic time out on the Auckland harbor, learn't alot about the surrounding area that I had no idea about even thought I've lived in Auckland all my life. Lots of laughing and just an all round good time, definitely recommend to all. Thanks to the friend team!!

Been meaning to take the family for ages and glad that we finally did. We had a blast and even the tight turns causing some people to scream were great fun

I booked this for my husband and promised him I would do it as well. He was sure I'd back out because I've never done anything remotely adventurous because I'm a big scaredy cat. But everyone involved with the jet boat operation helped me overcome my nerves and I did it and it was AWESOME!!! I got soaked and was... More

I went on this trip - well worth it as we're on the water for quite awhile! - in February and it was a warm day. It was easy to walk up and join the tour soon before departure as I was alone (the others in my group who were visiting Auckland had other plans that day; their loss). I... More

Was meant to do this in December but due to bad weather got postponed, ended up doing it for Valentines Day with my husband....awesome experience, the staff were great and very friendly - Julian was the best driver and full of local knowledge. Would definitely recommend to anyone to do this....cant believe I hadn't done this earlier!!
