Jet boating in Wanaka is the best experience I’ve had in the South Island. Pat is a very skilled driver navigating twists and spins around the Clutha with lots of knowledge of the history surrounding Wanaka. Definitely a must do when visiting Wanaka, you will not be disappointed!

Well this is just fantastic! We loved that your whole family could enjoy this epic experience- Pat loves showing off this stunning river and throwing in a heap of his infamous 360s!!! Thank you again for coming out with us at Go Jets and hope to see you back here in Wanaka soon.

Fantastic jet boat Trip - there were 7 of us in our group and our youngest girl didn’t want to go so they gave her a ride to try it out first and when she didn’t want to go they looked after her while we all had the best time ever .
