• Jet Boat - Rapids Jet

    Sail Barbary Sail Boat and Rapids Jet Special Combo

February 8, 2018

Exciting news!!

Taupo’s two top-ranked activities have teamed up to offer the best price to experience both.

Rapids Jet is the top-ranked Jet Boat experience in Taupo without a doubt. The only commercial operator in New Zealand to ride white water rapids. A Rapids Jet experience will be one to remember and guaranteed a highlight of your visit to Taupo

Sail Barbary is becoming the poster boy for Taupo as a destination. A fantastic way to see Taupo from the Lake.  Amazing scenery and kiwi hospitality aboard Barbary which was once owned by none other than Errol Flynn. 2.5-hour cruise to the Rock carvings along with a Jet Boat experience is a match made in Heaven

 

Recent Review of Rapids Jet

Review: familyoffivehols from Sydney  – Feb 2017 Great fun, with local information and lovely views

We did this with our three children under 12 and had a blast. The water is crystal clear which makes the skimming over the water, around the rocks and debris and huge 360 turns terrifying and exciting. The ride takes you up to the Aratiatia Dam, and the Rapids created after the dam release (only finished 15 mins before you at the bottom). After that, you race down the river, and see the natural landscape, and are informed about the local area, landscape, and more. The river is really narrow in parts and our driver was fantastic. He had a great sense of humour and interacted with the adults (not just our family on board, as the boat holds 13) and children in a great way. It just made the whole experience even better. A highly recommended experience, with an excellent company.

Review: Lea from Sydney- Jan 2017 Fantastic cruise on lake Taupo

Had a fantastic sunset cruise on the beautiful sailing boat. The crew were so friendly and it was really relaxing. The scenery was phenonomial and we were blessed with perfect sunny conditions. The cruise was about 2hrs and our guide was really informative and a local ( it was her last cruise that day!). Had a lovely wine and pizza and enjoyed the view. Really great – a must do!
