Amazing experience !

I seldom leave reviews, as I’m afraid that don’t know how to express myself. Yet, I will make an exception for this amazing tour (Pure Wildness Jet boat tour) provided by FiordlandJet as it’s an activity one must do while staying in Te Anau. It’s not only about a « jet ride » with speed ride, 360 turns or everything focusing only on sensation, but more an experience shared by enthusiasmic people who really love what they are doing and want to share their passion, showing astonishing landscapes in a very warm and convivial atmosphere. 360 turns were just part of the fun, but I really enjoyed the explanation on the LOTR shooting spots, the history of the shelters, the specificities of NZ animals, vegetation... even the Lake Manapouri water testing was an interesting experience !!! As a bonus, skipper Chris who was in charge of us, is a perfect doppelgänger of the famous 007 agent So I had the feeling that I was pretty well « escorted » Definitively, worth the price !

Hi Thien-An! Thank you so much for your review - we are so grateful for your high praise... although we may never hear the end of Chris being like 007. HAHA. We certainly do love what we do and especially lucky to have great guests like you to share it with. Cheers!

Scenic views with thrills!

Had a fun trip with the compulsory 360 turns. Beautiful surroundings with an added benefit of a short nature walk on the Kepler Track. Brilliant value, double the length trip at half the cost of one at Queenstown. Thanks Chris.

All great

Really good and great value for money compared to other NZ jet boat experiences. Beautiful scenery, wildlife information, Lord of the Rings sights and the obligatory 360 turns for the thrill seekers. Avoid the Queenstown crowds and go for this one if you do only one jet boat tour in New Zealand!

Thanks for your review Adam! Getting away from the crowds is definitely one of the highlights of our tour - we are so lucky to have such a serene back yard ;) Cheers.
