Excellent and absolutely fun ride!

My children and I really enjoyed the jet boat ride. The driver is great, he gave very good instruction on what will be happening on the ride, like when he will do the 360 turns. the 25min felt like a long time. It is money well spent. thank you for adding to our Queenstown another memorable event!

This 25mins Jet boat tour is NOT worth it

Overall, I don't think this tour is worth the money. I booked the 11:30am tour, thought give it a try first. We arrived the front desk on time, but waited about 10mins for our boat to return, then finished our tour at 11:57am. Considering it still takes about 3-5 mins to leave the port to the safety water zone, the real tour length is only about 15mins long. We did reached the bridge on Kingstone Rd and did 5-6 spins and the driver is very nice and kind(the picture in the ads is fake, it will never go to the shallow river). Most of the time we just drove straight and that was no fun at all in the strong lake wind! I would suggest the company changed the route of this 25-mins tour, simple just do 10 spins in the open water instead of driving that far to the Kingston Rd bridge. Most of the people chose this tour just want to feel the strength of the boat and enjoy the many spins. If they want to see the natural, they will choose the longer length tour with extra activity. Finally, when we reach the port around 11am, we found out that it's even cheaper to purchase ticket on port - "Two kids FREE with on adult ticket". Again, if you want to have some great experience of the jet boat, I would recommend you do the longer length tour, or a tour combined with kayak or swimming.
