The Taupō region is home to several jet boat adventures, each offering a distinct and unforgettable experience on the emerald waters of the Waikato River.

Experience the thrill of jet boating on New Zealand's longest river, and the only river that drains out of Lake Taupō.  Take a ride through the Aratiatia Rapids, get up close and personal with the mighty Huka Falls or experience the geothermal phenomena of Orakei Korako, whilst learning about the natural and cultural significance of the surrounding areas. You will find yourself marvelling at the colour of the crystal-clear waters, lush native bush and majestic pine forests that line the shores. Whizz past cliffs and interesting geothermal landscapes while bracing yourself for another breathtaking 360-degree spin. The exhilarating power of jet boating is an experience you will never forget and a spectacular way to view some of the region’s iconic scenery.
