Overview

If ever a tourism operator lived up to its catch-cry of speed, spins and adrenaline, it’s Kawarau Jet. You only have to look at the smiling faces of passengers when they get off the big yellow boat to know they’ve had an awesome experience. With a wide range of exhilarating and inspiring activities to choose. Ourtrips range from 30 minutes of speed spins & adrenaline to 2 1/2 hours. Combined jet boating with the Manupirua Hot pools. This is only accessible by boat. No roads here. Great fun for all ages. Or try our Parasailing. We offer ten minute flights either tandem or solo. Sit back and enjoy the exhilaration of free flight and admire the great scenery, before returning to the flight deck for a smooth landing on our purpose built Parasailing boat.

Booked seats for my mom and my hubby, but was convinced to join in on the fun! What a thrilling experience, absolutely amazing. I think my mom (70) is a thrill seeking adrenaline junkie 😁😄. Thank you to the entire team at Kawarau Jet Rotorua.

It was such a smooth take off and landing never experienced before. Various options of photos was awesome. Couple together was something great. Will certainly fly this again at 800 feet high. Our captain deserves a big round of played.

Hello the Oliver family, yes that weather. I wish it would go away and just be nice. We love a bit of wind for the jet boating which makes it very exciting but it is a bit too windy for the parasailing. Glad you enjoyed....More

Such a special experience with my family. Loved it!!! Thank you and a great tour guide who shared interesting knowledge and a Maori legend about Rotorua. Also being from Auckland I did not know White Island was a vent for Auckland. That's pretty scary!!!

The boat goes at 80km p/h and the driver will signal when he's about to perform 360 spin so make sure to hold onto to the safety bar. You also get a tour around the islands and cultural history background which enhances the experience. They...More
