Brilliant

Our driver was safety focused but showed us a good time on the water! Recently recovering from a broken ankle but he helped me into the boat and made me feel secure. Choice views of the area you can't get anywhere else. Too bad we had a few people that didn't listen to the driver, and a translator for their group that was so loud we didn't hear much of the tour. Not GO Orange's fault though, keep up the great work guys!

Great start to our holiday!

Such a great way to see Queenstown and surrounds! Loved the 360 turns and skidding by nearby trees. Wish there were more tricks!

Killer ride

Has to be one of the best jet boat experienced the crew were ready n the driver was the full package entertaining fun and educating for the passengers on board until sum body had to ruin it for the rest of the passengers who were in the boat but overall it was a great morning with the realnz crew highly recommend for future customers wanting a good thrill

Heaps of fun

So happy with our choice and had a blast. Make sure you dress warm and get ready to get wet, especially if you are sitting on the side. If you get scared then there is an option to drop you off quite early in the ride and you can go and have a drink at the Hilton. You get picked up on the way back. I think it’s a great option instead of driver going easy on the whole ride because of one person. That’s what happened on our ride. One person got scared and got off and rest of us enjoyed the endless spins :) extra points for the fun driver.
