KJet Jet boat ride

Experience an hour of Jet boating in Queenstown aboard the world’s first commercial Jet boat operator. You can step onto a big yellow KJet every hour at the Main Town Pier in the centre of Queenstown.

ONE HOUR JET BOAT RIDE In an unforgettable adrenaline fueled Jet boating experience, you'll speed away from the sophisticated downtown area into the channels of two of New Zealand's most scenic rivers. Firstly, you cross over the pristine waters of Lake Wakatipu. From here you’ll head up through the tranquil beauty of the willow-lined Kawarau River, the Jet boat then speeds into the shallow, fast-moving braids of the Shotover River.

We’ll take you for plenty of 360° spins through some of the picturesque parts of Queenstown offering incredible views throughout the trip. Everyone will be supplied with a life jacket and we also offer optional waterproof jackets if you want to avoid getting soaked on a big spin.

This is the ultimate adrenaline fueled activity and fun for all ages (2+ years). The 45-kilometre, hour-long Jet boating experience will be one of the highlights of your time in Queenstown.

UNDERWATER OBSERVATORY Once you return back to the pier you’ll receive complimentary admission to Queenstown’s Underwater Observatory. You can get up close to all the fascinating lake-life residing in the depths of Lake Wakatipu.
