Huka Jet BoatBoard your immensely powerful water jet powered Huka Jet boat and speed along the Waikato River to view the awesome spectacle of the white water tail of the Huka Falls as 220,000 litres of water a second tumbles over the cliff face. You will slide past sheer cliffs with just centimetres to spare and pass clouds of steam rising where a hot stream joins the river. See Prawn Park, New Zealand's only thermally heated prawn farm.

Be ready for the awesome thrill as your driver spins the boat through 360 degrees in its own length at high speed. The famous Shotover Jet Turn and the exciting but safe drive techniques were developed by Huka Jet's parent company, Shotover Jet. All Huka Jet drivers are superbly trained professionals who have to complete 120 hours on the water before they carry their first passenger.
