I heard about this tour some years ago and had always been curious to try it out. We finally got the chance to do it this weekend. The many different parts of the tour were a great mix and you cannot beat the Squeeze! I loved the warm waterfalls and hot pools above them. Our guide did a fantastic job as a Nature guide/photographer/boat driver.
I'll definately be recommending the trip to others. It's totally unique!

I have been on many different jet boating trips over the years and this is one of my top two. Chrissy and Adam were friendly and knew their stuff. The ride itself was fantastic. The first leg is the slower leisurely cruise down the beautiful Waikato river with a knowledgable commentary. The return trip is the what jet boating is all about! 360 degree spins and tight manouvres close to obstacles make this a must do. Highly recommended.

Awesome jet boat cruise down the Waikato River with a great guide (Adam) who was enthusiastic about the stories he told and knew about the history too. The Squeeze itself was a mind blowing trip with fantastic scenery - you have to experience it for yourself to fully understand the magic of it, and the waterfall at the end has to be the best massage out there. The trip back was full of 360 spins and excitement and one of the best jet boat rides out there. All in all it was a breath taking and pleasurable adventure and would recommend this experience to everyone.

My husband and I were booked with New Zealand RiverJet for the Thermal Safari adventure by our travel agent. We told them we were interested in adventure, but also relaxation and cultural activities. With this activity, we got all of the above! The hosts and guide at New Zealand RiverJet were friendly and knowledgeable. The thermal land at Orekei Korako was interesting and a natural treasure you can't see many other places. Great trip!
