WHERE WE TAKE YOU

Firstly, your twin engine Jet boat roars across crystal clear Lake Wakatipu at breath-taking speed. You’ll be surrounded by majestic mountains and mesmerising scenery. Then you zoom under the Kawarau Dam onto the deep green waters of The Kawarau River where we’ll take you for lots of 360° spins.

Next the adventure heightens as your driver navigates the fast –moving currents of the narrow braided Shotover River. Your Big Yellow will race up the shallow channels at speeds of up to 85KPH. All the while skimming across water that’s less than 10cm deep in places.

Finally, you return to the Pier for a complimentary view from Queenstown’s Underwater Observatory. Here you can view and purchase photos and videos from your trip. Then 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. We’re proud of our heritage as the world’s first commercial Jet boat operation.
