Two Rivers, Twice The Excitement

KJet is New Zealand’s Original Jet boat Ride. Based in Queenstown, we’ve been operating since 1960. And are proud to be known as the world’s first commercial Jet boat operator.

As a family owned business our aim is to give every guest a memorable experience. We enjoy sharing stories and sights that only our slice of New Zealand offers. Our focus is to deliver a value-for-money, friendly and exciting Jet boat ride. All of our trips take place on the scenic waterways of Queenstown, ensuring at all times the safety and comfort of our passengers.
