What a great trip. We went to Rotorua for the Queens Birthday weekend and had an absolute ball.
The owners are awesome and went out of their way to ensure we had a great time.
The Riverjets provide the right combination of thrill, education and sightseeing. The squeeze is a great adventure. Loved it. Certainly will be doing it again.
Thanks Nick and Richelle.

I can't top what anyone else has already written. Amazing last minute decision to take the Squeeze tour. Staff was amazing, scenery was beautifull, boat ride tons of fun and of course the actual squeeze itself was really cool. Great day out for family, couples and friends. I highly recommend it!!!

I've worked with this Riverjet company twice. I bring students to New Zealand every May. Each time I'm impressed by the trip. It's an amazing combination of natural history, Maori history, jetboating excitement, and bush adventure.

What an amazing trip, Friendly welcome from Chrissy and Adam.
First part along the river starts with a traditional Maori welcome and plenty of Info from Adam about the river, history, flora and fauna. Second part involves 'The Squeeze" a great short walk/squeeze through a rock formation through knee deep warm water. When Adam then said" Around the corner you will find a place you have never seen before we thought Yeah right. Then - around the corner we found a place we have never seen before - a natural spa pool with 2 warm waterfalls. Perfect place to relax. What a spot.
The return trip is what Jet boating is all about. 360 spins, fast spectacular manoeuvres and speed.
All in all - a great trip - can't wait to do it again... and again.

Thanks Chrissy & Adam. We were extremely lucky to be the only 2 booked on the morning trip with Adam on 'The Boss' making it very personalised. Adam was very entertaining and shared his great knowledge of the area and history and put the jetboat through its best to thrill us and succeeded. Can't imagine I will get to experience a ride like that again back in Oz. Midway, Orakei Korako thermal park was very interesting and a good walk. We highly recommend this to everyone who is considering a jetboat experience. Well done. Aye !
