Wanaka Jet Boat - Wana Jet

Hit the water for an unforgettable exhilaration and blood-pumping thrill of New Zealand’s most iconic adventure activity, the jet boat!

Highlights

  • A wild jet boat ride on world famous Lake Wanaka and the Clutha river.
  • Pure adrenaline on New Zealand’s swiftest river
  • World renowned Hamilton Spins and high powered jet boats
  • Real jet boating in waters that’s less than 5cm in places

Picture yourself skimming across shallow water, over sand bars, through rapids and around rocks at speeds in excess of 80kph, now picture doing this down New Zealand’s swiftest river with no seat belt and no brakes; that’s one way to get your adrenaline levels through the roof.

Set in the South Island's gorgeous Wanaka, you’ll explore the famous Clutha River at mind-boggling speeds with some of the world’s best scenery in the background.

Starting with a breath taking journey over Lake Wanaka, take in the snow-capped mountain views as the anticipation of tackling one of the world’s swiftest flowing rivers begins.

Let you adrenaline levels build as your demonstrates the manoeuvrability of the jet boat, pushing it to its absolute limits as the boat is skilfully navigated through shallow water, tunnels and over giant pressure waves! And of course any jet boat ride is complete without those famous 360 spins.

Along the way, the driver will stop for that once in a lifetime photograph and provide a fascinating commentary of the area and the jet boat itself.

The ultimate fusion of spectacular southern scenery and pure exhilaration - don’t leave Wanaka without doing this!

I met Tom Cruise at Wana Jet!

You are looking at most handsome men in Wanaka, Jeremy and Matt (Tom Cruise disguise). They are friendly, funny, and well experienced. Not only to enjoy the thrill of Jet Boat but also understand the history of Wanaka river. Only one bad thing I could think about is that my wife has fallen in love with them.

Great setting , fantastic experience

My son and I were in Wanaka for the airshow.Fantastic experience, my son and I were the only 2 on our jetboat experience, Michael was our driver and had heaps of interesting bits of info. Started with a cruise across the lake with some twists and turns and amazing scenery, then into the Clutha river for some more thrils and 360deg spins. The water was so clear you could see fish swimming past. We also had some of the planes from the airshow practising overhead. With just over an hour on the water, it is definitely value for money. Thoroughly recommended.

Wana Jet Rocks

The ride combines a cruise across the lake, some high adrenaline fun and a quiet recharge for the next burst. Our Driver Steve was excellent and provided a great commentary on the lake and river. Highly recommend!

Wow Wanaka, what a blast!

Exhilarating is the word. The trip began with a placid and informative ride across the bay and around to the beginning of the Clutha River and then the real fun began! We blasted down the river in short sharp bursts and spins which were great but never felt unsafe. My big tip is to rug up as it was Bl..dy cold!!! We were there in September.
