NZ River Jet - The Squeeze

The Squeeze is a truly unique New Zealand experience. Be thrilled in true jet boat style. Get up close with our natural environment. Soak in geothermal waters, explore native bush on the adventure of a lifetime!

The Squeeze begins with a thrilling scenic jet boat ride through Tutukau Gorge, taking in remarkable landscapes, and abundant wildlife while learning about the rich history and legends of the area.

Leaving the jet boat for the time being you set off in knee-deep geothermal warm water towards a narrow gap in the cliff face - it's time to start the challenge of the squeeze!

Manoeuvring your way through the narrow crevasses of the canyon walls, through waist deep warm water and over smooth boulders you emerge in lush native bush. Take some time to soak and relax in the geothermal heated pool and take in the atmosphere of this spectacular natural wilderness setting.

"Squeezing" your way back it's time to really put the jet boat through its paces. Hold on tight and enjoy all the thrills, excitement, speed and spins the New Zealand jet boat is famous for.

Duration: 2.5 - 3 hours including a full hour of jet boat action.

We are situated 44 kms from Rotorua and 34 kms from Taupo right on the Highway. It's easy to find. Please note, transport to our location is not included in this offer.

Awesome day out

Great day out,done a few jet boats round the country but this is by far the best one I've done as its more than just a burn on a boat up a river, you get awesome different sceneries from farmlands,canyons to geothermal Wonderland's, informative hard case guides and then the actual trek through the squeeze is the highlight and you get a jetboat ride as a added bonus, which of course is always fun and one of the longer if not the longest one I've done

Must Do!

Thoroughly enjoyed this experience! Jet boat ride was fun and Lamar was knowledgeable about the area and cultural history. The squeeze through the rocks was so cool as was wading the warm thermal creek and standing under the a warm waterfall.

Awesome time!

The staff were fabulous, they accommodated my booking error with no fuss, and were patient and helpful with my special needs daughter who struggled a bit with the walk through the river to the squeeze. Great day's fun all around.

Great NZ experience!

Me and my partner had a great time on this trip! It's well worth the money... Marty our captain was awesome. He would slow the boat down to explain some cool facts or history about the river. There's some nice geothermal activity to look at along the way. Going through the squeeze was a really cool experience and the hot waterfall and hot pool was amazing. I'm so glad we went in this adventure it's well worth the money I highly recommend it.
