“do this, its amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2010

short coach ride to the speedboat - then an amazing journey down the river to lake Manapouri with a few 360's along the way and some Lord of the Rings filming spots. this is middle earth! there was no-one else on the river or the lake, just us in a massive boy-racer for water and the wildlife.
beautiful scenery, great fun.

“Explore the wild hard to get to places on the Waiau River”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2010

What an amazing and exhilarating trip we had down the Waiau river with Lex.A brilliant sunny day with wall to wall blue sky.There is no way Lex would swap jobs.From uniquely erosion sculptured high cliffs down to the thick bush to the rivers edge it was a photographers paradise.Abundant bird life ,fish an angler would drool over,and Mt Titiroa with snow caps watching over us.We rehursed our own Lord of the Rings scenes but only faster.The Hamilton Turns never lost any passengers that we were aware of.We were picked up and returned to our motel in the bright yellow bus.Thanks guys for a very memorable day.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2010

Had a fantastic time on the Luxmore Jet. Scenery was fantastic and the guide was really friendly and knowledgable. Also liked the extra info about the filming of Lord of the Rings. Great way to spend our first afternoon in Te Anau. Highly recommended.

“Great scenic trip on the Upper Waiau River”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2009

Informative and personal jet boat trip. Plenty of of stops to take photos especially at 3 actual ' Lord of the Rings' film locations.
It is a great one hour jet boat scenic trip on the upper Waiau River with 360 degree turns thrown in if requested.
Great way to see the Lake and with thrills included.
