Overview
Step into a semi-submersible ‘shark’ for a high-speed shark ride in Queenstown, then roll, dive, and cut hairpin turns while reaching up to 50 miles (80 km.) per hour. You’ll have great views of the mountains surrounding Queenstown as you cruise into the open water to join a pilot for a wild ride that goes across, above, and into the water of Lake Wakatipu.
What to Expect

It's time to scream in the shark machine. Like a stunt plane on the water - sit back in the cockpit and get ready to feel the g-forces as our expert pilot gives you an experience you'll never forget. Looking through the F-16 fighter grade glass of the semi-submersible shark you will see the sky disappear as your pilot descends into a long dive under the water only to then breach the surface and launch the entire 6 meters of the shark in the air. We can roll on a 90′ angle, do tight doughnut turns and reach top speeds of 80 kph on water and 40 kph while diving underwater. 

Whilst you are out there your friends or family will be back on the boat watching as you go through the amazing stunts your pilot puts you through.

Hi NZAdventurerNZ, Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. I did double check our brochure, front and back, and it definitely doesn't say we can seat two people in the same shark. Maybe the picture of the pilot with the passenger on...More

Top Gun experience on Water

Simply thrilling and one of a kind experience. The wharf was choppy due to wind but the company took us on a boat to another location where it was much calm. Going into this piece of machine and the power it has was amazing.More

Brilliant fun with a friendly staff

The experience was great fun, and is not as scary as you’d think. It took only about 10 minutes to get to the drop-off point and the experience was about 10 minutes. The drivers were more than happy to go at a pace you want,...More

Two people can get in the shark. With one being the pilot, so it’s only one for people like us. Just like tandem sky dive. Do minimal and get the experience
