What people are saying about Te Anau

Our guide, Rebecca, made our jet boat experience one of the top activities during our vacation in New Zealand. Her friendliness and candor made our afternoon together enjoyable and fun. She pointed out many features of the river, lake, and surrounding mountain ranges. She is a true master of the boat and we sped through the water with the utmost confidence in our captain, even through every roaring 360 degree turn!

The whole experience was fantastic. Enjoyed the humor and storytelling from the guide. He also made it a priority to engage with the small kids on our ride (not my kids) and Make it a great experience for them. We had a lot of fun doing the spins too.

Long trip with jetboat on the river and lake. Including shore leave. 3 Lord of the Ring movie setpoints.
