This was a fantastic well organised jet boat ride that not only went downstream but also came back right up to the Huka Falls, very enjoyable half hour ride.

Paying $109 for a 30 minute jetboat ride is way too expensive I think. Plus the costs for your pictures at the end. Yes it was amazing, but paying $109 for that??

Great fun. Really good ride, only we sat at the back of the boat and could not hear what the driver was saying. But it did not take the edge off the ride.

Great fun riding on the Jet Boat. Everything was a target '360s were exhilirating, getting close up to Huka Falls was great but no history given by guide. Very expensive for 30min ride and photo package also cost too much.
