Shark Ride +Parasailing +Jet boat ride

TRIPLE THE THRILLS WITH A DAY IN THE BAY!

Get ready for a Jawsome thrill ride with Hydro Attack! Take a bite out of Queenstown skimming across Lake Wakatipu in a semi-submersible shark and get ready to feel the g-forces at speeds of 80 kph. Scream as you jump five metres into the air and dive into the crystal-clear turquoise waters at 40 kph. This is a one-on-one experience with the pilot so you’re able to push your own limits and go as wild as you want above and below the water. Queenstown is the only place in the world you can try it out!

Fly high above the shores of Lake Wakatipu on an unforgettable tandem flight with Queenstown Paraflights, New Zealand’s most exciting tandem parasailing experience. Lifting off the back of the big red boat to 200 metres above the shimmering waters of Lake Wakatipu, sit back as you take in the incredible 360˚ views of Queenstown.

Then, get ready for an insane one hour Jet boat ride on the mighty Shotover and Kawarau Rivers. Go full throttle at speeds of 95kph on the fastest and meanest Jet boats in town. You’ll be screaming to go faster. Don’t take our word for it though, book now!

FAQ's

KJet Jet boat trip

    Q. What should I wear on the boat?

    A. For your comfort we recommend that you dress for the weather conditions on the day, keeping in mind that in our boats you will be travelling at 95kph and therefore the wind-chill can be frosty! Don’t forgot to bring your sunglasses, (or goggles in winter) sunscreen, as well as hats and gloves in winter months. Please ensure your little ones are dressed especially warm.

    Q. Can I take my bags on the boat?

    A. We have complimentary storage for your belongings. There is limited storage available so please keep in mind we can only store handbags and small backpacks.

    Q. Can I take my camera on the boat?

    A. On our trip there are many fantastic photo opportunities so YES, we’d love you to take your camera on board to capture these moments. However your camera is taken on board at your own risk, keep in mind with Jet boating there is the risk of getting slightly wet and we need you to be able to hold on to the hand rails, especially during our 360° spins. If you need more information about this please chat to our Reservations Team and Drivers when you check-in for your trip.

    Q. Will I get wet on the boat?

    A. Part of the fun with Jet boating is the spray and drama! We provide full length spray jackets (with hoods) to wear under your life jacket so you will be kept mostly dry and warm. If you are really worried about getting wet then please request to our staff that you sit the centre seats of the boat. Please note we can’t guarantee seating.

    A. Our child age is 5-14 years. Our Infant age is 2-4 years and travel for FREE with an accompanying adult.

    A. Yes, our minimum age is 6 years old and a parent or guardian must check in with the child to sign the consent form if they are under 18. Please remember Hydro Attack is a one-on-one trip so it’s only suitable for kids who are confident away from their parents.

    Q. What should I wear?

    A. Due to the cosy confines of the cockpit it is recommended you wear comfortable loose-fitting clothes and dress in layers as it can get warm in the cockpit. You also may need to remove your footwear as per drivers request.

    Q. Will I get wet?

    A. Our inflatable aircraft seal and thick acrylic canopy keeps the cockpit protected from the water and the weather. As we are a water-based activity there is the potential at times to get a small bit of spray or damp feet but nothing to worry about. Wet weather gear isn’t required to be worn in the craft, only the streamlined lifejacket we provide.

    Q. Is there a weight or height restriction?

    A. Due to the cosy confines of the cockpit we need to make sure that all our passengers can get in and out of the cockpit quickly and safely in the unlikely event of an emergency. Due to this there is a height restriction of 192cm (6ft 3’) and weight restriction of 110kg (242lbs or 17 stone) in place.

    Q. Is my trip weather dependent?

    A. Hydro Attack’s operation can be affected by high swell on the lake, heavy rain or stormy conditions so we ask that you call our freephone number 0508 HYDRO ATTACK (493 7628) to do a weather check at least one hour before your trip departs.

    Q. Can I ride in Hydro Attack if I have an injury or am pregnant?

    A.
