Are you ready for the thrill of your life?


Experience Queenstown's famous Shotover Jet Boat Ride and get your adrenaline pumping in the adrenaline capital of the world. Journey deep into the Shotover River Canyon as your expert driver whips your Jet Boat skillfully through the dramatically narrow canyons, past rocky outcrops and around crags and boulders. Your 'Big Red' boat will be put through its paces as you reach speeds of up to 85kph while skimming the surface of crystal clear waters that are as shallow as 10cm. Feel the water sprays as do fishtail turns and 360-degree spins that are guaranteed to get your heart pumping! The towering river canyon walls offer a spectacular location for the experience of a lifetime. 


You will spend 25 minutes on the water, but please allow 1 hour 30 minutes for the whole trip which includes your return to Queenstown.  

Be mindful that there will be a wind-chill factor as you are travelling at high speed - therefore we strongly recommend that you wear warm clothes (jacket, hat and gloves). In summer, don't forget your sunblock and sunglasses are great all year round. 


Please note that all bookings are required to be reconfirmed. As soon as you book for a specific day we will send a second email within 6 hours to reconfirm the booking.
