We had a great time on the jet boat. Our driver Jeremy had a great sense of humour and was very funny. We ended up doing a second ride it was so good.

A very fun way to view Hukka falls! We paid $100 per person which I thought was a lot for a half hour tour. I did enjoy it however my fiancé absolutely loved it! My only issue was the price.

This was an experience I will not forget in a hurry. The 360o turns were great, if you don't mind getting a little wet. Was great to see the Huka Falls from a different perspective, almost right under the water.

A must! Exhilarating and exciting but with safety very much in mind. Our driver, Sarah, was extremely skilled and epitomised the fun and character of New Zealand youth! She was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us a trip to remember. The Huka Falls are awesome and it's well worth a visit to the viewing platforms to appreciate them... More

HukaJet is the best way to see Huka Falls. The falls pump out a huge amount blue water and the boat practically drives into it. The 360 high speed jet boat spins add to the fun.

Amazing drivers who deliver thrill after thrill, whipping around posts and seeming to drive full speed towards a rock face and veer off at the last second, lots of 360's, and a great view of the falls plus some interesting information thrown in. Pricey but fun!

Thrilling ride to the bottom of Huka falls thanks to the skill of our driver Liam. Lots of 360 spins and exciting stuff. So good I had to do it again.

Fantastic way to spend $100!! Really enjoyed the ride and the 360s and most of all the Falls themselves. Made so much better by the commentary by our driver. Jeremy. who left us rolling in the aisles!!
