Taupo Jet Boating

Barrelling speeds, 360 degree orbits in giddying spins and boat rocking halts. Wet from the water spray, laughing and screaming, let your hair down and feel the wind rush. Jet boating is a heart pumping adrenaline rush for the whole family to try. And did you know that jet boats are a Kiwi invention?

There are 3 jet boat operators in the Great Lake Taupo region offering 3 totally different experiences along various parts of the Waikato River. You can take in the majestic Huka Falls with the aqua blue swirling Waikato river rush past majestic white cliffs and hot springs on Hukafalls Jet.

Or choose to ride some spectacular white water and see the impressive Aratiatia Rapids on Rapids Jet. For a thermal experience take New Zealand Riverjet on the 'Thermal Safari' right up to Orakei Korako, the hidden valley thermal reserve.

Whichever jet boat ride you choose, you are sure to see some of the most beautiful hidden landscapes New Zealand can offer.
