KJet - 1 Hour Jet Boat Ride

Step off Queenstown's Main Town Pier and onto a big yellow KJet boat for an unforgettable Jet boating experience...

Highlights

  • Amazing one hour jet boating experience along the Kawarau & Shotover rivers
  • Travel at speeds up to 95 km/ph often in water less than 5cm deep
  • Experience exhilarating 360 degree spins - what jet boats are renowned for!
  • Travel 45 kilometres and soak up the diversity of stunning Queenstown landscapes

Leave downtown Queenstown in your wake as you power into the channels of two of New Zealand's most scenic waterways; The Kawarau & Shotover rivers!

Skimming over the pure waters of Lake Wakatipu taking in stunning views of the Remarkables Mountain range, we follow the beautiful willow lined Kawarau River, before pursuing the shallower waters and fast-moving braids of the famous Shotover River.

In the shallow waters the Jetboat comes into its own travelling at speeds up to 95 km/ph often in water less than 5cm deep! Your experienced driver will skillfully negotiate the narrow braids, and tight turns of the river while making plenty of time for the exhilarating 360 spins that Jet boats are renowned for.

Covering a full 45 kilometres you get to experience the fantastic diversity of Queenstown's waterways, take in glimpses of local life from the homes lining the lakeshore, as well as stunning views all along the way including river gardens and great views of the Remarkables Mountain Range.

 

Driven by 60 years of passion, KJet is locally owned and operated and proud of its heritage as the world's first commercial Jet boat operation.

Perfect experience of ever met

excellent captain. we all have wonderful and perfect experience in jet boat. I had many options to choose in fact but we choose Kjet for our trip because it is valuable at the first stage. However, the Kjet staffs are really friendly and the captain proved his outstanding driving skill during the trip. Also he can communicate and introduce the famous sightseeing and suggesting for our journey. Appreciated for all of them. We will come and recommend our friend to come.

Speedy n wet

Amazing sunny day out on the rivers with an experienced driver who certainly could twirl and twist us in 360’s around . My German friends enjoyed the wild n wet ride after having a long distance flight behind them. They where certainly awake after that ;) Some little river showers in our faces made that ride even more wicked ;) We be back ;)

Great

We went at a pretty quiet time so got a small boat and had a great time. Lots of lovely scenery and fun spins, remember to wear sunglasses though because it was pretty bright!

Great fun

Driver was great and we did some 360s but please note that they do not go through the canyons. We were under the impression they did and when we found out they didnt it was rather disappointing. It was our fault tho as should have done better research.
