Only KJet offers over 60 minutes of unforgettable thrills, spins and exhilaration across three waterways in one of the world’s most stunning locations. Firstly, your twin engine Jet boat roars across crystal clear Lake Wakatipu at breath-taking speed, surrounded by majestic mountains and mesmerizing scenery. Then you zoom under the Kawarau Dam onto the deep green waters of The Kawarau River, complete with lots of 360° spins. Next the adventure heightens as your driver navigates the fast –moving currents of the narrow braided Shotover River, racing up the shallow channels at speeds of up to 85 KPH in water that’s less than 10cm deep in places. Finally, you return to the pier for a complimentary view from Queenstown’s Underwater Observatory, where photos from your trip can be purchased and you can get up close and personal with our fascinating rainbow trout and lake-life. Join us for an hour of exhilaration and a lifetime of thrilling memories.
Driven by over 50 years of passion, KJet is locally owned and operated, and proud of its heritage as the world’s first commercial Jet boat operation.

v good thanks Rating 4 out of 5
One appreciates staff are dealing with large numbers of (dopey) travellers - but at times I felt a bit like a cattle beast being herded - by (just) one staffer on the jetty.
