Our 35 minute blast will take you up to the Aratiatia Power Station to the base of the Aratiatia Rapids, New Zealand's biggest & longest rapids that spill from the Aratiatia Dam daily. Feel the adrenalin rush as we shoot through the narrowest canyon on the Waikato River. Then get ready to enjoy the real thrills, as we play in the pressure waves of the awesome Nga Awapurua Rapids (river of springs). These are the biggest commercially jet boated rapids in New Zealand. Our impressive 500 horse power Chevy V8 jet boats will muscle you up and down these exhilarating white water rapids with ease. Laugh with the sheer joy of our legendary jet boat spins. Perhaps spot a world famous Taupo trout. There is nowhere else to jet boat white water rapids.
