JET BOATING, HELICOPTER AND RAFTING
Combine an adrenaline charged Jet boat ride with an action packed helicopter flight and white water rafting experience on either the Kawarau or Shotover River.
After your Jet boat ride, head to Queenstown Rafting and take a bus to Cavell’s Rafting Lodge where you will meet the rest of your rafting crew.
Your helicopter is then ready to take you on a breath-taking transfer into Skippers Canyon before you get your muscles warmed up as you raft down the river. After your trip you’ll return to Cavell’s Lodge for hot showers and a sauna before returning to Queenstown.

Only KJet offers over 60 minutes of unforgettable thrills, spins and exhilaration across three waterways in one of the world’s most stunning locations.
WHERE WE TAKE YOU
Firstly, your twin engine Jet boat roars across crystal clear Lake Wakatipu at breath-taking speed, surrounded by majestic mountains and mesmerising scenery. Then you zoom under the Kawarau Dam onto the deep green waters of The Kawarau River, complete with lots of 360° spins. Next the adventure heightens as your driver navigates the fast –moving currents of the narrow braided Shotover River, racing up the shallow channels at speeds of up to 85KPH in water that’s less than 10cm deep in places.
Finally, you return to the Pier for a complimentary view from Queenstown’s Underwater Observatory, where photos and videos from your trip can be purchased and you can get up close and personal with our fascinating rainbow trout and lake-life.
Join us for an hour of exhilaration and a lifetime of thrilling memories.
Driven by over 50 years of passion, KJet is locally owned and operated, and proud of its heritage as the world’s first commercial Jet boat operation.
