One of Queenstown’s best adventure activities, KJet takes you on an insane 60 minute, high-speed Jet boat ride thundering across three waterways travelling at speeds of up to 95kph in the fastest and meanest Jet boats in town. Blast across Lake Wakatipu and down the world-famous Shotover and Kawarau Rivers with 45km of unforgettable thrills, 360-degree spins and exhilaration in one of the world’s most stunning locations.


Book one of the top adrenalin experiences in Queenstown! Get ready for the jet boat ride of your life with the world’s first commercial Jet boat company, operating since 1958. Take in stunning views of the Remarkable Mountain Range views and journey up two of South Island’s most iconic rivers. A perfect year-round, all-weather activity! Running 365 days a year.

Depart from the heart of Queenstown, climbing aboard a big yellow jet boat at the Main Town Pier. Enjoy the acceleration and exhilaration of a high-powered twin-engine jet boat as you shoot across the crystal clear Lake Wakatipu. On the Kawarau River, ride the twist and spins as you race past rocks and under bridges at speeds of up to 95kph.

Grip tightly to heated handrails and experience full 360° spins as you go! The adrenalin rush intensifies as you race up the shallow channels of the narrow Shotover River, in water that can sometimes be only centimeters deep. After 45-kilometers of pure adrenaline, return safely to the Pier or Marina, or be delivered to the Private Jetty of your lakefront Hotel.
