Braided River Jet Boating

Braided River Jet Boating is a small, genuine business owned and operated by South Canterbury locals, Ronald & Anna Clearwater. We specialise in exclusive-use, customised jet boating experiences on the iconic Waitaki River.


$190.00 - $2045.00


Situated 3 hours south of Christchurch the Waitaki River forms the boundary between the regions of Canterbury and Otago and flows from the Southern Alps to the Pacific Ocean. We operate on the lower section from the Waitaki Dam at Kurow to the river mouth - a section some 60km in length, offering bespoke Braided River Experiences for individuals and small groups. Our jet boat seats just 5 passengers and we don't mix groups, so we can customise an experience specifically for you.

Ronald is a Maritime New Zealand approved commercial jet boat driver and a passionate jet boater & advocate for New Zealand's braided rivers. We'd consider it a privilege to show you this unique environment and we invite you to join us on the water soon.
