Our family had a great day on the Humpridge Jet. The ride was beautiful and exciting - the teen agers and college kids in our group completely enjoyed the ride. We learned about the river and Lake Hauroko, had a great meal, walk through the forest, time to see the coast, walk across a suspension bridge and just had fun... More

The trip was organised over the phone without a problem. We met Paul at the boat ramp and from start to finish, nothing was a problem to him. The boat ride across the lake and up the river was spectacular. He stopped a couple of times for photos and to give us information on the area. Sitting at the mouth... More

Thanks Roffy for an excellent day. Enjoyed every minute of the adventure. The mountains, the lake & river were beautiful, add to this the excitement of the jet boating & awesome food! Well worth it!! Experienced rain, sleet, hail & sunshine - all this added to the excitement of the day.

An awesome trip down the Wairaurahiri river with Roffy in the driver´s seat. It was an exhilarating experience unlike anything I´ve ever done before. Even though the concept of racing in a really fast boat down rapids seems kind of crazy, we felt completely safe the whole trip. The barbecue lunch down by the Tasman sea was also superb. Even...

A wonderful and exciting day. We couldn't stop smiling. Fun but safe at the same time. Lunch was delicious. It was a windy day and we got wet but it was fantastic and would do this again in a minute. Loved by the entire family. Great job and thank you.!!!

We are always looking for something new to do on our NZ holidays and found the Humpridge Jet Boat to be an excellent day's outing. An exhilarating ride down the Wairaurahiri River followed by a delicious BBQ. Absolutely beautiful scenery and Roffy handled the jet boat with complete control. Highly recommended.
