The Rugby World Cup is around the corner and if you are one of the lucky few travelling to go watch it live, then you might as well make the best of the trip and enjoy one of New Zealand’s top adventure sports; Jet Boating!
The world famous Shotover Jet is the ultimate jet boat adventure in Queenstown New Zealand, where they take you on a high speed ride through the narrow, dramatic canyons of the Shotover River. Forget about a lazy paddle down a wide river, this is how it should be done. In fact, one of the highlights is when the “pilots” spin the jet boat a full 360˚!
The Shotover Jet company have taken over 2.5 million people on these crazy rides, since 1970, all of whom have gone to enjoy the adventure and New Zealand’s great scenery.
The jet boats, custom built in Queenstown, use two Buick 3.8L Supercharged V6 engines (producing 520bhp) that propel the jet boat through tight, thrilling river rides at 85kph, ensuring you have one of the most insane boat rides of your life!
Prices range from $69 to $119 (New Zealand Dollars).
