Experience description

When it comes to thrills, New Zealand knows exactly what it’s doing. Jet boat rides are one of the most popular activities in the country for adrenaline-hunters, and this blast through Auckland’s scenic Waitemata Harbour will give you all the kicks you could ever require. Take a seat in a comfortable boat that will take you to speeds of up to 85km/h, through power slides, swooping fishtails and 270-degree spins. This is white-knuckles, heart-in-the-mouth action, led by an expert driver who will show you just what this super-powerful boat can do.

With grandstand seating, great views are guaranteed as you pass underneath the harbour bridge, travelling past the iconic pink sugar refinery at Birkenhead and other major Auckland landmarks. This tour rarely pauses for breath but when it does, the driver will provide a little commentary on what you’re seeing. Ponchos are provided, because you’re going to get a bit of spray every time the boat makes a swift turn, but that’s all part of the fun. If you love adventure activities, this Auckland gift experience will fit the bill.
