Great Experience - Amazing Scenery!!

We experienced near perfect sunny Autumn weather on this 2+hour dart river jet boat trip and viewed amazing scenery. It's just you, the guide and nature so we would highly recommend this experience to anyone that wants to "Do Something New in NZ". All of the folks working for the Dart River Jet were really friendly, helpful and grateful for us travelling to Glenorchy to enjoy this experience. If you get the chance just do it!!!

Epic experience!

Run like a well-oiled machine, but nothing about the commentary feels scripted or rote learnt. Our driver was genuinely passionate about the area a d showed us an amazing time!
