Had a couple of 'interesting' incidents. In spite of this would recommend this as a much better alternative to Shotover etc. Knowledgeble driver learnt much about fauna and flora plus exhilirating ride home.

An excellent jet boat safari. The jetboat driver, Neil, was very interesting and the trip just got better and better. Extreme beauty and value for money.

A real highlight of our trip. Wish the guide was more on time (sandflies!) - but well worth the wait.

A very personal trip. Not crowded like more commercial operations.
