Shotover Jet

Jet Boating Sightseeing

Nothing you have experienced will prepare you for the excitement of a jet boat ride. Shotover Jet is the only company permitted to operate in the spectacular Shotover River Canyon.

Once aboard, your expert driver puts your famous 'Big Red' jet boat through its paces, speeding past rocky outcrops with only inches to spare, twisting through narrow canyons.

The major highlight - the famous 'Shotover Jet' turn, where your boat spins through a full 360 degrees on its own length!

Experience the adrenaline rush of the Shotover Jet on your next action packed family holiday. Located only 6 kilometres from Queenstown, this is one New Zealand tour you will never forget!
