Great if they don’t cancel

This venue is a long way from where we were staying and on arrival they told us we couldn’t go because they didn’t have the numbers We were rebooked for next day and the trip was very good

FANTASTIC FUN!!

Sean our boat driver was great. Kids just loved our adventure and the Hamilton turns, being a boating family. Getting so wet was all part of the fun.

Fantastic!

Loved it! The staff were very friendly and driver of the jet boat was very professional. I felt safe at all times. The river has the most stunning scenery and the boat ride was a thrill so it was win , win for me and our group. Definitely worth the drive out of Queenstown.

Wow Wow Wow

Fantastic experience. The team at Goldfields jet were awesome from start to finish. The jet boating was fantastic with the driver telling us a lot about the history of the area and river. We were out for more than 25 mins so that was real value for money. Would definitely recommend to others looking for a fantastic jet boat experience. Marion

Boat cancelled 38 min before departure

I wouldn’t recommend this company, we were notified 38 min before departure there wasn’t enough people to operate. We could come back in the afternoon or next day. Unfortunately we left Queenstown an hour before the boat trip and didn’t get the message until arriving. 38 min is not acceptable, and being this company is 45 min drive from QT and you want to arrive early, surely you know the night before? Coming back isn’t an option when they’re that far out of town. I also emailed and asked for the manager to respond prior to this review, but no one bothered to reply. Unless you’re staying in Cromwell, due to their unpredictable departures even when you’ve booked, I would stick to a Queenstown company or your time & petrol could be wasted. Our family walked away incredibly disappointed.

From Jet Boating - 25 Min Kawarau River - Goldfields Jet

Contact details are a must guys, we tried to contact well before that but lack of details made it hard to do. Also we do not run heavily discounted trips unless minimum numbers are met, as it is stated prior to your booking when you read the terms and conditions. Thanks
