Shotover Jet

Get ready for the thrill of a lifetime with New Zealand's world famous Shotover Jet - the ultimate jet boat experience!

Feel your adrenalin surge as you accelerate into the towering Shotover River Canyons. Your expert driver takes you skimming through the shallows in mere centimeters of water, blasting past the canyon walls, rocky outcrops and boulders. Everything blurs into your periphery as the specially designed 'Big Red' Jet Boat reaches speeds of up to 85kmph.

Hold on tight and prepare yourself as the signal is given for the famous Shotover Jet 360° spin, watch as the scenery fully rotates around you, sending a spray of whitewater sparkling across the rivers surface. Without losing momentum the Jet Boat has successfully spun within it's own length and continued on its exhilarating course.

The only company permitted to operate in the spectacular Shotover River Canyons, Shotover Jet has thrilled over 3 million people since 1965.

Incorporating amazing scenery with a high dose of adrenalin and adventure, Shotover Jet is for many the highlight of their Queenstown experience and a thrill you won't forget.
