Alert Level One Update: 22 September 2020

From midnight 21 September 2020 we are in Alert Level One in the South Island. We are still taking the following steps in an effort to keep Jet boating and Time Tripper experiences a safe and clean environment and also to protect the health and safety of all our employees.

Booking and payment: There is contactless payment available at the Main Town Pier. Customers can also book online and pay in advance. We are unable to take cash payments currently.

We request that customers please dress warmly (we recommend ski gear in winter) including bringing your own waterproof coat or rain jacket.

Life jackets are disinfected after every trip.

We require customers to please wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and dry thoroughly before participating in Jet boating.

Hand sanitiser is available to use for all staff and customers

If you are unwell, or your partner/close contacts are unwell, we request you do not Jet boat; we also need to know if you have been traveling national or internationally before you arrived in Queenstown.

Contact details are obtained at time of booking and/or checking in using the COVID-19 NZ tracer app.
