Jet boating is one of the classic kiwi inventions so it really should be on your must-do list when you visit. Hukafalls Jet, just outside of Taupo is the North Island's leading jet boat adventures.
A 30-minute trip will take you along a stunning section of the Waikato River, where you will slide past cliffs and trees at an incredible 80km per hour. Brace yourself as your jet boat pilot twirls his finger to signal one of the trademark 360 degree spins - it's loads of fun and laughs are certainly guaranteed.
Along the way you'll see the Aratiatia Dam, Wairakei Geothermal Power Station, Huka Prawn Park and a huge variety of native trees and bush. If you're lucky you may even spot some of our resident wildlife on the river!
The water is crystal clear so make sure you take a look as you pass through just 10cms of water in the 'shallows'. The jet boat pilot will get you up close to the hot water streams where you feel the warmth of the water, before you continue on to the highlight of the trip - playing in the white water tail of the famous Huka Falls.
As you sit in the boat, you'll see the many visitors on the bridge waving down at you - no doubt wishing that they too, were on your Hukafalls Jet boat having the time of their lives!
Make sure you smile, as Hukafalls Jet now offers JET CAM - your very own personalised video of your jet boat adventure.
