i was terrified of this idea, but it was FANTASTIC, great value, save by booking online, I only booked late the night before.. got the time we wanted and the discount.
Fabulous staff, photo and dvd package worth every cent, option to ride again for only $19 .. excellent.
The spray jackets kept us warm and dry, we are large people and this was no problem for our spray jacket and life jacket.

A great thrilling way to see the Huka Falls up close and personal. Jeremy was our jet boat driver and he was extremely funny and good fun. He took us screaming past rocks and the banks of the river, into thrilling 360 degree turns. Our teenage boys really enjoyed the ride that they went again. The restaurant next door in the Prawn park is an excellent stop for a meal. The prawns were delicious.

Had a blast Jezza our guide was great even if he is silly enough to support the nsw blues he made the trip all that more entertaining. That said was great fun and although you get a little wet the rain coats they provided were sufficient. It's worth the money and the boats get so close to the trees and banks, good adrenalin rush. I have been driving boats for 15years but the skill of his driving is awesome. Thanks guys!

Went on the Huka Falls Jet boat which took us all the way to the bottom of the Huka falls. We got to do 360 spins all the way up and down the falls. Well worth the money to get that close to the bottom of the falls. Great customer service from the boys and great pictures! Then we went for the walk up the the top of the falls just on sunset which was perfect! The falls were at full height but still a must see if in Taupo!! No fee for going up the top of the falls. Grab yourself a coupon in the Lake Taupo booklet at information centre to get a percentage off your jet boat ride!
