“What a ride with Shotover Jet!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

This was a most exciting experience with our capable chaffeur Rob, thank you! We loved the 360 turns as well as the excitement of almost hitting the canyon walls, the speed and the great video and photos! My husband and daughter thought this was the best activity we had during our 2,5 weeks trip to NZ!

“Fantastic Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

This was amazing fun. I absolutely hate boats and wanted to go again. Lots of excitement for the kids and still lots of information about the heritage of the area. Our driver Selwyn was fantastic.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

The Shotover Jet was high on our list of things to do - and I'm so glad we did it. You must not miss out on this fantastic experience. My kids (10 & 8) absolutely loved it. Felt very safe and the staff were friendly and professional. Well worth the money.

This breathtaking jet boat trip takes you right through the canyons so close you could touch the walls. The 360 turns are awesome and this trip is highly recommended and great fun
