What you need to know

Discover the waterways of Lake Wanaka over a thrilling 60-minute jet boat ride. This experience will see you racing across Lake Wanaka and down NZ's largest river, the Clutha, famous for turquoise waters and a gold-rush history.

Navigating shallow waters, overhanging trees and pressure waves at hurtling speeds, your adrenaline will be kicked into overdrive. Not least of all by the famous Hamilton spin!
