Awesome all around

Whatever you do in the Southland make sure to book with Pure Wilderness Jet Boat Tours. It’s a family-and-best-friend owned business that comes with a lot of story telling and humor. That’s just a plus to the actual tour. Gorgeous adventure in the most awe-inspiring environment. Don’t forget sunscreen and bug spray.

Fun for the whole family

Sometimes it is difficult to organise activities the whole family enjoys. Fjet nailed it! We all love the jet boat; speed, water in our faces and the 360s. The beautiful scenery and commentary ticked my boxes to connect with nature and learn more about this amazing part of the world. How special is it to be able to spend time on the water in a World Heritage area.

Jet boat in Te Anau

Great fun way to spend a couple of hours in Te Anau. The river and lake were beautiful - Rebecca did a great job in combining her skills in the jet boat with showing tourists only what the locals know. Secluded spots along with some LOTR settings to get your geek on. Well worth it and highly rated. Great local family business to support - and Abbie.

Hi Barry, thanks for the kind Review. I do really love getting to show people my backyard because it truly is a wonderful place - even better to have to LOTR filming locations down there. Abby is pretty good too... I think we'll keep her on ;). Thanks again - Rebecca
