    Nothing you have experienced will have you prepared for the thrill and excitement of a Shotover Jet ride; it's an adrenaline rush you'll never forget!

    From the moment the accelerator hits the floor your adrenaline hits the roof as you speed in mere centimetres of water along the famous Shotover River and deep into the spectacular Shotover River Canyons. It's an amazing ride, as the Shotover Canyon walls tower over you, your expert driver puts your ‘Big Red’ through its paces and skilfully whips the Jet Boat past rocky outcrops, skims around crags and boulders, and speeds through the narrow canyons.

    Rock faces blur in your peripheral vision, the opaque water sprays into myriads of white crystals with every turn, and you grip the hand rail for comfort and reassurance and then let out a whoop of excitement as your driver spins the boat around in its own boat length — wow, you've just experienced the World famous Shotover Jet full 360 degree spin. Hold on tight and enjoy the thrill as you spin and without losing momentum keep speeding along the river.

    We had a spectacular time doing the Shotover Jet Boat. It was one of the highlights of our NZ trip and we'd definitely do it again.

    Adrenalin proved to be a no fuss way of arranging international adventure experiences. I would highly recommend them to everyone.

    Completely out of this world! The boat or whatever you call that thing got so close to the canyon walls and we did spins and got all wet! It was AMAZING!

    We got off the boat soaking wet, very red faced from the wind and water, but glowing all over from the thrill of it.

    The Shotover Jet was totally wicked ... our driver, Simon, kept going heading straight for the canyon walls and then turning at the last, last SECOND.
