Your 20 minute 'Airblast' in 'Air Force 2' our specially designed American style Airboat built right here for New Zealand's shingle riverbed conditions. Skim over shallow water that leaves seasoned jet boaters amazed. Hunting for 'gators' won't be too successful but your imagination will allow you to experience the sensation of scooting over wet stones, high above the river propelled by a 2m Whirlwind propeller driven by a 6 litre Chev V8.
