Glide Through The Waters Of Queenstown
Of the many and must things to do in New Zealand, the Shotover Jet Ride is not to be missed in Queenstown.
“The Most Exciting Jet Boat Ride In The World” brags their company and I couldn’t agree more.
This experience is a little bit different and unique compared to most adrenaline activities you will find in Queenstown.
From the moment the driver’s foot hits the accelerator, you see nothing but pure bliss of Mother Nature’s finest creations. As the amazing aqua water glitters all around and getting you a little wet, the Jet with a speed of 85kph passes by breathtaking sceneries and Canyon walls that tower above you.
Ridges and boulders are ready to give you a little scare as the driver skillfully whips the powerful boat away from them. With a little twist and turn the Jet spins you in 360°, something no other Queenstown jet boat can do.
Although the ride only lasts for 25 minutes, you will still feel pumped up and energized even after the whole thing. This does not fail to put a big smile on your face and a story to tell your family and friends about.
All you have to do is book a slot on their website ( Shotover Jet ) or over the counter but I do recommend making reservations online. They also have hot deals from time to time, so if you’re lucky you get promos and discounts.
The Shotover Jet is located at Arthurs Point, 7kms from Queenstown and is the only company permitted to operate in the River Canyons.
Complimentary shuttle buses depart from ‘The Station’ Information Centre, corner Shotover and Camp Streets in downtown Queenstown, so you don’t have to worry about transportation. 😃
