Its been pleasure doing water taxi and jet boat with Katoa. Amazing experience with speed boat and island tour. Its worth doing it. Katoa should be your first choice in Rotorua. Try it out.

Hi Joanna Thanks for this review! Awesome to hear you and the kids had a fun time on the jet boat with us. We do have spray jackets for all our customers to keep them as dry as possible but even so it seems you guys all had fun getting a little wet. !

Great trip

Really enjoyed our trip to Mokoia on Katoa Jet. Super friendly staff and very nice to have a local person doing the guided walk. Felt the photographs were a bit overpriced but otherwise a great experience. Would recommend it to anyone.

Great experience

Fully enjoyed our jet boat experience, we added the island stop off which was fantastic and learnt lots about the island. The team at Katoa Jet we’re friendly and professional and ensured everyone had the best time. Would recommend adding this in if you’re visiting Rotorua.
