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.

We booked this for New Years Eve, also the birthday of one of our group. It was superb. Booking was easy and excellent value. The trip itself was a mixture of everything - adrenaline, history, sight seeing, comedy, the works!! The team went the extra mile in making sure the birthday boy had special treatment - we laughed so much... More

Had a busy weekend of Rotorua attractions. Started the weekend off with the friendly team at Kawarau Jet, they were friendly, insightful and extremely helpful. I felt safe and in good hands from start to finish of our Parasailing experience. It was such a magical feeling floating in the air with my partner taking in the spectacular views of Rotorua!!...

Whilst in Rotorua we decided to try parasailing. We had to do it as two tandems, as there were four of us. It was very peaceful once you are up. We all enjoyed the experience. the crew were friendly and helpful.
