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!
