Amazing experience !

I seldom leave reviews, as I’m afraid that don’t know how to express myself. Yet, I will make an exception for this amazing tour (Pure Wildness Jet boat tour) provided by FiordlandJet as it’s an activity one must do while staying in Te Anau. It’s not only about a « jet ride » with speed ride, 360 turns or everything focusing only on sensation, but more an experience shared by enthusiasmic people who really love what they are doing and want to share their passion, showing astonishing landscapes in a very warm and convivial atmosphere. 360 turns were just part of the fun, but I really enjoyed the explanation on the LOTR shooting spots, the history of the shelters, the specificities of NZ animals, vegetation... even the Lake Manapouri water testing was an interesting experience !!! As a bonus, skipper Chris who was in charge of us, is a perfect doppelgänger of the famous 007 agent So I had the feeling that I was pretty well « escorted » Definitively, worth the price !

Hi Thien-An! Thank you so much for your review - we are so grateful for your high praise... although we may never hear the end of Chris being like 007. HAHA. We certainly do love what we do and especially lucky to have great guests like you to share it with. Cheers!

A must if you’re in Te Anau

If you love shotoverjet, you’d definitely love this one. The ride is longer, you have stops to take photos and get the history behind certain places, you also get to go for a short walk plus you get more 360’s!!! If you get Lex as your tourguide you sure won’t disappoint! Highly recommended.. we loved it :) Thanks again.

Scenic views with thrills!

Had a fun trip with the compulsory 360 turns. Beautiful surroundings with an added benefit of a short nature walk on the Kepler Track. Brilliant value, double the length trip at half the cost of one at Queenstown. Thanks Chris.

Jet Boat

Awesome. Our driver was hesitant to take us for our safety and comfort due to weather conditions however after a half hour wait and a break in the weather he agreed to take us and we were able to enjoy the entire experience. Definitely worth doing as it was so much fun and spectacular scenery. Our driver Chris had years of experience and plenty of local knowledge.
