Information

World famous as the ultimate jet boat experience, Shotover Jet has thrilled over 3 million people since 1965, and now it’s your turn! 

OPENING HOURS: Daily from 8am - 6pm
COST: Shotover Jet Ride – $145.00 per person

Shotover Jet operates on an exclusive area of the Shotover River and is the only company permitted to operate within its spectacular canyons, carved out over the ages by a vast volume of fast flowing water. The very grandeur of this spectacular environment, less than 10 minutes drive from Queenstown, adds to the excitement and exclusivity of the Shotover Jet experience.

Shotover Jet commenced operations on the upper Shotover River in 1965 and was one of Queenstown’s first adventure activities, and over the years is one of the experiences that has helped to put New Zealand on the global tourism map. Combining the classic New Zealand invention of the Jet Boat with the Kiwi culture of adventure, Shotover Jet has become part of the fabric of what is quintessentially ‘New Zealand’ and has taken jet boating from its humble beginnings to become one of New Zealand’s most iconic ‘must do’ visitor activities.

We were just stopping in at Queenstown for the day, and it was so easy to show up and book a spot on the next boat. There was plenty of parking at the jetty, but they also have a shuttle from town. The ride itself was a great combination of scenic and exciting!

Nice view, too slow in the canyon, more fun/action expected, too expensive.

Excellent experience - the 360 degree turns are fantastic! 25 minutes on the water - good amount of time.

Very scary experience, constantly on the edge of your seat thinking you are going to smash into the canyon walls.

It was quite fun and a nice team but way overpriced, $135 per person for twenty minutes!
