Two rivers, twice the excitement
Only KJet offers over 60 minutes of unforgettable thrills, spins and exhilaration across three waterways in one of the world’s most stunning locations.
Firstly, your twin engine Jet boat roars across crystal clear Lake Whakatipu at breath-taking speed, surrounded by majestic mountains and mesmerising scenery. Then you zoom under the Kawarau Dam onto the deep green waters of The Kawarau River, complete with lots of 360° spins. Next the adventure heightens as your driver navigates the fast–moving currents of the narrow braided Shotover River, racing up the shallow channels at speeds of up to 85KPH in water that’s less than 10cm deep in places.
Driven by over 50 years of passion, KJet is locally owned and operated, and proud of its heritage as the world’s first commercial Jet boat operation.
