We took this jet boat ride on 10th December as it had been recommended by Lonely Planet. We were not disappointed. Mike picked us up from our motel in Te Anau and gave us a lot of local information during the 10 minute journey to the boat. Lex, our boat driver, continued with detailed commentaries while we were travelling, pointing out the LOTR sights, birds, fish, vegetation and the different parts of Lake Manapouri. The views along the river are lovely and the views of Lake Manapouri are simply stunning. The boat ride is great fun, travelling at speed and doing 360degree turns! My husband was given an indepth explanation as to how the boat worked and was even shown the engine! All in all, a very personalised experience and I would highly recommend it.
