A spectacular jet boat ride on the mighty Kawarau River through the heart of one of New Zealand’s most historic gold-mining regions. The specially designed jet boats and highly trained drivers will take you on an unforgettable 40-minute ride through the Kawarau Gorge. Power-to-weight, these 13-seater V8 powered 4.8 metre pocket rockets leave many of the Queenstown boats in their spray. With their small size and stonking big 8.2 litre Chevy motors, the Goldfields Jet fleet of boats are more exciting in multiple high speed 360 degree spins and skim faster past sheer rock walls of the Kawarau Gorge. The Kawarau River runs from Queenstown to Cromwell a short drive east and is renowned for its white-water rapids… and for the extreme sports available all around the river. On this high-velocity jetboat ride, take to the river at Cromwell and speed between the sheer cliffs of Kawarau Gorge. Experience the thrills of riding a jetboat down the river, powering through rapids and doing high-speed 360-degree spins.
