    EXPERTS IN OUR FIELD

     

    Health and Safety

    Safety is of paramount importance to KJet. We aim to ensure that everyone enjoys their experience on the water and we meet the very highest of safety standards.

    KJet operates under the national maritime governing body, Maritime New Zealand (MNZ), and undergoes Safe Operational Plan audits and inspections annually as part of MNZ’s Certificate of Compliance regulations. All our drivers require a minimum of 100 hours training and are subject to stringent vetting & licensing procedures.

    KJet’s MNZ current Certificate of Compliance is available on request.

    QUEENSTOWN AIRPORT TRANSFER

    The ultimate welcome to Queenstown.

    Set the scene for your group by whisking them straight off the plane and onto an awaiting Jet boat which will deliver them to their hotel via Lake Wakatipu and a blast under the Kawarau Falls dam. There’s no better way to awaken the senses and get a bit of adrenaline into the bloodstream straight away!

    We co-ordinate the airport meet & greet, coach transfer and transfer the guests luggage to their hotel while they’re being whisked across Lake Wakatipu.

    We have the capacity to carry up to 140 guests at one time, with the flexibility to move larger groups on a rotational series, while still retaining the luxury and exclusivity of your own private Jet boats.

      Queenstown Marina

      KJet’s brand new location

      Our new reservations and visitor centre is now open as a first class departure point for Conference and Incentive delegates, located at the revitalised Frankton (now Queenstown) marina.

      The marina is an additional departure point to KJet’s long standing location at the Main Town Pier central Queenstown. The centre is tailored towards large groups that require ample parking for coaches, space to offer food and beverages before or after a Jet boat trip and exclusive use of the centre available on request.

      This fantastic new facility allows for flexibility with trip duration, pick up and drop off points, and can also be used as a wet weather option. For delegates that are unable to go on the Jet boat, the garden and public seating area along the waterfront is a great place to sit with a coffee and watch the boats come and go.

      With the largest fleet in NZ we are well equipped to take care of your large group while retaining the luxury and exclusivity of your own private Jet boats.

      Please get in touch with us to arrange a site inspection or if you require any more information. We would love to hear from you!
