We went on a jet boat ride on the Waikato River. Fun, thrilling and informative. Absolutely stunning views of the river! A little expensive though and minus points for not being allowed to take your own pictures.

It was fun but we thought there would be more 'bumps' and splashes. Mostly we were just sailing up to 50kmph. Not really an adrenaline kick.

Rapid Jets were friendly, professional and very approachable. They showed fantastic knowledge of the area and are very skilled drivers. Loved going over the rapids and through the river. Getting wet was awesome and so much fun! I can't wait to do it again. Love the photos at the end. We did the combo deal with Rafting New Zealand and had the best day with both experiences.

Real fun activity with friendly staff and good driver who shared interesting info about the river etc. Didn't really get any until we were on the boat, but there were no surprises.

Good instructions, great fun. Loads of water running because the sluice gates on the dam open all day.

It's a well run operation. The driver was professional and had a lot of good information. We have been on a lot of Jet Boat rides and this would have to be one of the better ones. The difference being going over the rapids and launching up into the air a bit while doing so was a lot of fun. Our kids loved it. We recommend the photo disk at the end. Thanks guys!
