Spectacular White-Water Jet Boating

Spectacular White-Water Jet Boating

Surging whitewater. Striking scenery. A breathtaking sight. Why take a photo when you can take a trip?

When the gates of the Aratiatia Dam open, 80,000 litres of water per second crash out into the river. Within minutes, the crystal blue water becomes a seething, tumbling blanket of white as it takes on a life of its own. From your seat in one of our jet boats, you'll be right in the middle of this spectacular white-water wonder. You'll get splashed with river water as we shoot up and down the rapids. Be mesmerised by the swirling, ever-changing patterns and movements of the running water that surrounds you.

New Zealand's Only White-Water Jetboat Experience

New Zealand's Only White-Water Jetboat Experience

Why just go jetboating, when you can go White-Water Jetboating?!

We are New Zealand's only (yes, only!) white-water jet boat experience. From Cape Reinga in the north to Invercargill in the south, you can't do this anywhere else in the country. Then again, why would you want to, when a fleet of jet boats and the biggest rapids on New Zealand's longest river await you right here?
