This jet boat is so fun to explode~exciting but not terrible. If it is really expensive to buy on site, it is recommended to book it with klook one week before the weather! Huka is also very beautiful here. After the end, you can go to the upper level to watch the waterfall and the tourists who take the speedboat below!
