NZ River Jet - The Squeeze

The Squeeze is a truly unique New Zealand experience. Be thrilled in true jet boat style. Get up close with our natural environment. Soak in geothermal waters, explore native bush on the adventure of a lifetime!

Highlights

  • Rotorua's #1 Ranked Must Do Jetboat Attraction
  • Bathe under a steaming geothermal waterfall
  • Thrilling Scenic Jet boat ride through Tutukau Gorge
  • Explore a geothermal river and navigate narrow canyon squeeze
  • Relax in natural geothermal heated pools

The Squeeze begins with a thrilling scenic jet boat ride through Tutukau Gorge, taking in remarkable landscapes, and abundant wildlife while learning about the rich history and legends of the area.

Leaving the jet boat for the time being you set off in knee-deep geothermal warm water towards a narrow gap in the cliff face - it's time to start the challenge of the squeeze!

Manoeuvring your way through the narrow crevasses of the canyon walls, through waist deep warm water and over smooth boulders you emerge in lush native bush. Take some time to soak and relax in the geothermal heated pool and take in the atmosphere of this spectacular natural wilderness setting.

"Squeezing" your way back it's time to really put the jet boat through its paces. Hold on tight and enjoy all the thrills, excitement, speed and spins the New Zealand jet boat is famous for.

Awesome

Loved the squeeze!! All the staff were amazing - friendly and helpful. Our tour guide was Cam I believe - super funny and knowledgeable about the area. Jet ride was fun, maybe a half hour each way. They supply wet suit tops and a coat to wear on the way back cause you’ll be wet. The walk in had warm water to your knees, then around the squeeze, it could come up to your stomach, chest area (when you have to duck a bit to get around the rock face. Then the water goes back to ankle high for the rest of the walk until you get to the waterfall. The waterfall water is waaaay warmer. It’s so awesome in there, powerful and you can take photos. Only wish we could stay there longer that a few minutes but you head back once every group has gone in Overall, very cool experience and these guys run a great service. 10/10 recommend!

Amazing Day Out

So much more than just a jet ride. Definitely the best spur of the moment activity I've been on. Shannon and her knowledge, skill and amazing friendliness certainly made the trip. Right from the minute I arrived, I was very welcome. All geared up and ready to go Shannon took us on a great trip, explaining things along the way. Then the fun starting squeezing through the canyon and out the other side to an amazing waterfall. After our natural water massage we were homeward bound when Shannon kicked it up a notch and we started with twisting and turning and 180° spins. Excellent time from start until finish and I truly recommend.

Squeezed value in every minute. Do it!

What a great original experience. I’ve done a so many activities in this country and this incorporates so much in 3 hours of your time. On the day, these guys gave our group fun, excitement and all with the utmost care and safety. If you can do a basic hike and walk up and down the stairs on the jetty, you can do this. Wow. I recommend someone be at the phone to confirm the booking as this was a little difficult but otherwise, this was experience was professional and organised. Get your jet boat ride here, and bathe in New Zealand’s geothermal phenomenon right here, winter or summer. Thanks Team NZRiverjet
