New Zealand River Jet
New Zealand River Jet has two options for exhilarating jet boat rides, though their 'Thermal Safari’ is the most popular. Your journey starts with a leisurely boat ride up the Waikato River to the geothermal wonderland that is Orakei Korako, where you jump off the boat and take a walk around the geysers, hot springs, bubbling mud pools and silica terraces.
The jet boat ride home takes provides plenty of thrills with Hamilton spins and close shaves with trees.
‘The Squeeze’ is a great option for the more adventurous. On this trip you'll disembark on the side of the Waikato River and manoeuvre through narrow crevasses, climbing boulders in warm water up to a thermal waterfall.
A NZ River Jet trip is a wonderful half day activity with rides leaving daily at 11am.
