Wanaka: Jet Boat Ride on Clutha River

1. Wanaka: Jet Boat Ride on Clutha River

Experience the water like never have before on a jet boat adventure in Wanaka. Skim across shallow water, over sand bars, through rapids, and around rocks at speeds in excess of 80 kilometers per hour. Departing from Wanaka’s waterfront, enjoy a short jaunt across the lake taking in stunning snow-capped mountain views, and prepare to enter one of the world’s swiftest-flowing rivers, the Clutha River.  Of course, a jet boat ride wouldn’t be complete without the iconic Hamilton Spin, a high-speed maneuver causing the boat to spin rapidly on the spot. Your expert driver will raise your adrenalin, demonstrating the maneuverability of the jet boat and pushing it to its absolute limits, safely and skillfully navigating you on an unforgettable adventure.

What people are saying about Wanaka

Loved the illusion rooms, so interesting and mind bending! Probably took me too long to do the easy challenge for the maze, but it was still fun. The toilets out the back are hilarious. Had to queue to take photos out the front, it was so popular. A great day out (that was meant to be a few hours)!!!

A cold rainy day, but truly exciting experience. All credits to our skipper.

Sarah our boat guide was amazing, super fun, highly recommend!

Beautiful scenery, great commentary. Felt safe but lots of fun

Great jet boat ride adapted for weather conditions.
