Overview
Enjoy high-octane adventure on New Zealand’s Waiau River on this 30-minute extreme jet-boating adventure in Hanmer Springs. Clip into your life jacket and hop aboard your powerful jet boat for the ride of your life. Zoom through rocky gorges with a pilot at the wheel, shoot white-water rapids and admire breathtaking views as you spin 360 degrees over the waves. Just don’t forget to hold on tight!
What to Expect
Select from several departure times at booking and head to the jet boat base in Hanmer Springs to board your powerboat. You'll experience the ultimate ride with a skilled driver at the helm, who maneuvers the jet boat down the Waiau River. Speed over white-water rapids and through steep gorges while the boat negotiates the narrow river channel.

Skim over the crystal-clear waters of 6-inch-deep (15-cm) riverbeds through braided shallows and hold on tight during 360-degree jet spins while you attempt to take in the scenic river views during your 30-minute adventure.
