  • Honestly one of the best experiences in my life. This Shotover Jet company are official. Only only have they been going at it for a very long time but they had many celebrities that trust them even prince Harry took a ride with them. We landed the same day and came straight to this place and wow. I recommend this to anyone starting off New Zealand. This was super fun and so cool how fast and control the drivers were when it came to hitting these so close corners but we felt 100% safe during the whole drive. I highly recommend it and also try to sit down on the edge of the boat you really get to see how close you are. Also if you have a go pro wear it on your head they will allow it worth the head strap. Also no phones on the bot they have a safe bin to drop it off before you enter the boat. Your belongings will be safe. Like I said again I highly recommend it you will not be disappointed.
  • Great thrill. Skilled drivers and very funny too. We had a good amount of splashes and 360 spins. Enjoyed every second of the experience very much. Quite pricey though
