Travelled with husband and 4& 14 YO children. Mark-our boat drive gave us an awesome jet tour over the river. Friendly staff, beautiful scenery, and professional skills, highly recommend.

When we arrived my husband and I received our tickets, when I inquired about another 4 in our group, I was informed they were on the afternoon trip. I had them in the morning trip with us. After waiting around 1/2 the decision to put a bigger boat in was made. We were not impressed with the desk personnel. The... More

This is a truly exceptional experience. From the initial coach ride to Genorchy to the bus tour of the area and bush walk to the jet boat ride the staff are all friendly and professional. Robbie our driver and guide on the walk was very informative and knowledgable. The highlight has to be the jet boat ride which is the... More

An absolutely fantastic experience, the highlight of our trip! The scenery is magnificent, and the jet boat road exhilarating! Our driver, Finn, was great, and we were lucky enough to have the front seats. Definitely recommend!

The scenery on its own sells this trip as this is such a stunning part of the world. Very well run and even though its very popular (especially in summer), everything was well organised and ran smoothly. The weatherproof gear is all well maintained, the jetboat drivers friendly and informative. Was great to have the walk in the bush beforehand... More

I've read a few of the reviews and I think people don't really understand what jetboats are for. They were invented by Hamilton (actually it was one of his employees who told him f=ma so the jet outlet has to be above the water line) for going up NZ gravel rivers in low water - for example a jet boat...

Fabulous scenery on the Dart River and great commentary on the local area wildlife and history. Lots of filming for movies and commercials has been done along the river so it was good to hear about that as well. The drive from Queenstown is long and winds along the cliffs so be sure and arrange to get picked up at... More
