Passengers enjoying themselvesTwin Rivers Jet has been operating since 1978 and pioneered the two river experience combining the very shallow and demanding Shotover River with the breathtaking scenery of the deep, crystal clear Kawarau River. Its very fast and powerful craft can operate in water inches deep. All with an amazingly shallow draft and powered and steered using a jet of water, they range from a 300 horsepower boat carrying 11 passengers to a 700hp twin-jet model carrying 25.

Jet boatBoard the large and powerful Twin Rivers jet boat to take off across Lake Wakatipu to shoot the rapids of the Kawarau Falls Dam. Blaze upstream over the deep waters of the Kawarau River leaving a huge rooster tail of spray in your wake. Then hang on as you enter the mighty but often inches deep Shotover River. Your highly skilled driver will whizz you through serpentine channels, under overhanging trees and along sheer rocks banks. A half hour into your ride you'll spin around and do it all again, this time with the force of the rivers behind you.
