This should be a must do for everybody. the scenery is spectacular and the differing water conditions encountered give a true appreciation of how the combination of jet boat and experienced driver can tackle tricky rapids and strong water flows.
The crew are very professional and instantly put us at ease despite the heart stopping adrenalin rush of powering along at high speed in this beautiful remote area of New Zealand.

What a fabulous trip from Matahina Dam to Aniwhenua Dam. Another hidden gem in the Bay of Plenty. Awesome boat, experienced and knowledgeable drivers. Thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend the trip.
