You’ll need to hang on tight as the driver skillfully weaves the jet boat through the intricate network of braided river channels, skimming along stony banks and through gushing opalescent blue waters rich with salmon and trout. As you journey through the gorge, the wind ripping through your hair and water spraying with every carefully-calculated twist and turn, soak in the dramatic scenery.
Explore The Rivers By Jet Boat
Scrub covered hills give way to towering coal and limestone cliffs, in captivating hues of grey and brown, which have been carved out over millions of years. Spot the shags sitting atop the cliffs, poised to dive on their unsuspecting prey, and marvel at the grandeur of the snow-capped Southern Alps. Scream with excitement as the driver spins the jet boat through 360 degrees and the magnificent scenery blurs before your eyes.
