Jet Boat Tour - Rakaia Gorge

100% WEATHER REFUND GUARANTEE..

For an adrenalin-pumping experience you'll never forget, find a deal and jump aboard Discovery Jet and blast along the Rakaia River.

Watch the video!! - REAL Jet Boating! with real experts.

Hang on tight as our driver skillfully weaves the jet boat through the intricate network of braided river channels, skimming along stony banks and through gushing crystal clear waters rich with salmon and trout.

As you journey through the gorge, the wind ripping through your hair and water spraying with every carefully-calculated twist and turn, soak in the towering coal and limestone cliffs. As you open to the top of the gorge embrace the magnitude of the majestic Southern Alps and Mt Hutt. Feel the excitement as your driver spins the boat 360 degrees.

Our drivers know the river like the back of their hand and will unveil to you all its glittering treasures.

This trip is a 30 minute river blast, but if you are seeking further adventure, - whether you are looking for a foot-to-the-floor thrill-seeking experience or a more sedate, leisurely ride along the river we can tailor-make a jet safari for you.

When booking special Bookme hot deals, the operator in very rare occasions, not withstanding all endeavors, - may have to reschedule the time slightly if load requirements dictate. Please contact the operator as per instructions on the booking reference several hours before the scheduled trip to discuss weather and river conditions.

THE TRIP TIMES BELOW ARE INDICATIVE ONLY - TRIP TIMES ARE DEPENDENT UPON WEATHER AND RIVER CONDITIONS. YOU MUST CONTACT THE OPERATOR TO CONFIRM THE TRIP. YOU MUST ALSO PROVIDE A CONTACT TELEPHONE NUMBER WHEN BOOKING.

    Very fun ride

    Enjoyed the 30 min ride a lot. Spins, close to the cliffs, some historical stops, great photo stops. Definitely worth the money and a good deal on bookme

    Family Outing

    Young children shouldn't be put in front seat as they can't see where they're going. 6yr old was very disappointed with only being able to see out the sides of the boat.
