If ever a tourism operator lived up to its catch-cry of speed, spins and adrenaline, it’s Kawarau Jet. You only have to look at the smiling faces of passengers when they get off the big yellow boat to know they’ve had an awesome experience. With a wide range of exhilarating and inspiring activities to choose. Ourtrips range from 30 minutes of speed spins & adrenaline to 2 1/2 hours. Combined jet boating with the Manupirua Hot pools. This is only accessible by boat. No roads here. Great fun for all ages. Or try our Parasailing. We offer ten minute flights either tandem or solo. Sit back and enjoy the exhilaration of free flight and admire the great scenery, before returning to the flight deck for a smooth landing on our purpose built Parasailing boat.

Parasailing - Best way to see Queenstown from above

Flying high above lake Wakatipu is one our highlights from our Queenstown holiday. The operators were friendly, professional, and accommodating. We'll try the Kjet next time 👍

My husband and I went out for both a jet boat ride and parasail since it was such a beautiful winter's day. We had so much fun! The jet boat is very grunty and zooms along so fast. We got to do lots of turns and spins and got nice and soaked. Our driver was really friendly had lots of... More

Very cool experience! Sad to be in such horrible weather which made it more scary / exciting a must do but I suggest going on a day when the wind isn't super strong. Cool photos taken, lovely guides. Cheers for a great memory !!

It was a rainy cold day and we questioned why we were going on this expedition, but it proved to be well worth it. The employees immediately made us feel like part of the family, gave a great overview of the Rotorua history and area while on the boat tour, and gave us a lot of exciting 360s. I would... More
