You can step onto a big yellow KJet every hour at the Main Town Pier in the centre of Queenstown. In an unforgettable New Zealand Jet boat experience you’ll be transported from the sophisticated downtown area into the channels of two of New Zealand’s most scenic rivers. Across the pristine waters of Lake Wakatipu and through the tranquil beauty of the willow lined Kawarau River, the Jet boat then speeds into the shallow, fast-moving braids of the Shotover River. The 43-kilometre, hour-long adventure highlights the magnificent diversity of Queenstown’s waterways.
At speeds of up to 85 kilometres per hour — in water often less than 10 centimetres deep — this is where the Jet boat comes into its own. When you return to the Main Town Pier you’ll descend beneath the lakes surface to view the Underwater Observatory where you can feed the fish that thrive close to the shore. Photos from your trip can be purchased here as mementos of your unique Jet boat adventure.
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.
