We went on the jetboat as a family and had a great time. Lex was our skipper he was great with the kids, very knowledgable and is the king of spins! My hubby and eldest had been on a jet boat before in Queenstown but enjoyed this more. Well worth the money and we will be back. Thanks again guys... More

The superlatives really cannot do it justice, so I won't try. All I can say is just do it. You will not be disappointed. It is the best 100 bucks you will ever spend.

Last February we enjoyed a Luxmore Jet trip from Te Anau down the Upper Waiou river to Lake Manapouri with Lex and Shirley, which was great fun with a few spins thrown in (but nobody thrown out!). Frodo wasn't around that day but Lex showed us where he had been. Shirley then took us on a walk along part of... More

Been on many of these type of jet boat trips through out NZ but Luxmore is by far the best, an hour long ride, lots of speed and turns the driver was so informative and happy for any questions from his passengers. Fully recommend this trip.

Mark was a good laugh and an awesome pilot for the jet boat. 360 spins were incredible to experience and the sites and serenity were breathtaking. Even had some LOTR film sites pointed out to us. 10/10

We were planning to do the Shotover jet in Queenstown but came across Luxmore Jet in Te Anau and sooo glad we did. You get a longer ride (1hr) and for half the price of Shotover! The staff Mark and Lex were super friendly and locals, so were able to give us a true account of the area. We had... More

We were picked up from our B&B at the stated time, and taken to the river where we started our boat trip. after being togged up with life jackets. The boat driver was very knowledgeable about the area, and stopped several times along the river, where some of Lord of the Rings was filmed. We then went out on to... More

Had a terrific day with Lex and Ken. They know the river so well, and were able to put me onto parts of it that other anglers can't get to. If you're on the South Island go Jetboat fishing, it was fantastic!
