You are definitely welcome to bring your camera with you to Shotover Jet as there are plenty of great photo opportunities on the Shotover Jet Beach or from our viewing deck overlooking the Shotover River. However as there is the potential that you may get slightly wet during the trip and more importantly for the safety of yourself and other passengers only HANDS FREE cameras are allowed on the Shotover Jet. These must be mounted in such a way that you can hold on at all times with both hands and not protrude beyond your bodies silhouette or interfere with any other passengers experience. See below for details
Any other personal cameras, video cameras and mobile phones are not permitted on the 'Jet Boats'. A full souvenir photo pack of your Shotover Jet ride is available to purchase and you can also upgrade this to include a 3 minute ‘Jet Cam’ video of your personal trip on Shotover Jet ‘Big Red’ Jet Boat.
HANDS FREE CAMERAS
The approved method of using a hands free camera is using a forehead mount strap. This does not in any way interfere with the people sitting beside or behind you. The cameras included in this are the Go Pro and Sony Action cam. Chest straps are NOT permitted because although they do fit within our requirements the low perspective is unsuitable and we have had ongoing problems with customers standing up in the boats to get a better view! Also not suitable are selfie sticks, wrist strap cameras or similar.
Camera head straps are available for purchase at our base building.
