Jet boat ride across Lake Hauroko and down Wairaurahiri River. Takes over an hour to get to Waitutu Lodge. We stayed there in the middle of an ancient for two nights, exploring, swimming BBQ and jet boat out again. Great trip. Bring insect repellant, sandflies are bad but lodge has netting on all windows and doors.

Great value for money, over an hour on a jet boat down the lake, down the river to the open ocean. Class! Stayed in a cool lodge for two nights and a BBQ on the last day - ate beautiful venison. Amazing place, nice 18km walk too along an old logging train track. Place looks primitive. Amazing.

Had a fantastic day on the Wairaurahiri Jet(Humpridge),
Thanks Roffy for taking us on the journey across the deepest lake in NZ and down the the rugged south coast, your knowledge of the area, sense of humor and warm hospitality were invaluable! It was an amazing adventure, minus the crazy hype of other tourist jet boats. It was exhilarating yet relaxing taking the stunning trip down the river. Great company, great food, great way to see this remote part of NZ, great safety- the only thing I could have asked for was dry weather! So be prepared. The rain did make the scenery more dramatic and the and certainly and experience I'll never forget.

Marvellous jet boat ride from Lake Hauroko down and up the Wairurahiri River with lunch to the sea at the bottom of the South Island in Fiordland.

Paul was fantastic, awesome driver and fantastic experience, best value jet boat ride around with a superb lunch at waitutu lodge. I would recommend this as one of the must do trips to really get to the back of New Zealand.
