    One of the best rides I’ve ever did. The roaring sound of the jet boats were so cool. And the way our driver was drifting on the corners of the river was breathtaking. Definitely a must try!!

What To Expect

Hold on tight from the moment you leave the river base, as you spend 30 adrenaline-inducing minutes blasting down Queenstown's scenic Shotover River. Watch as your driver skillfully navigates between boulders and through narrow canyons, which have been carved out through powerful flows of water from the Southern Alps. Prepare for 360 degree turns on the river and speeds of up to 85kph! Being the only company operating on the Shotover River, you'll feel truly immersed into the wild as your group zooms on this pristine piece of nature. For added convenience, you can pick up the shuttle bus departing regularly between downtown Queenstown and the start location.

    Fun activity for family! but not reccomended if u have todler unless someone willing to look after it. Getting there was less hussle if taking free shuttle bus at the city area with designated specific location. The ride was great combination of the scenic view and the experience riding jet with super fun driver. This is a must do activities when u are in Queenstown. Expected to get some water splash but it would not make u wet.😆

    Shotover jet is worth playing! The speedy boat trip between the cliff and rock along the river is so excited. Although you will get wet, the 360 degree turning is the most impressive experience. The transportation is convenient. Klook’s discount is much appreciated.

    Fabulous view along the way when having jetboat. Very safe activity so just relax and just pay attention to the driver's hand gesture when he raised his hand.

    It’s one of the highlights here in Queenstown, and even in the South Island. The ride was longer than expected and the profession boat drivers did there best to impress you. Must try!!!!

    This is the most famous jetboat in New Zealand. It's exciting and the view nearby is beautiful. We stayed on the boat for around 30 minutes(?). I truly recommend this.
