Departing from Wanaka’s waterfront enjoy a short jaunt across the lake taking in unsurpassed snow-capped mountain views, as we prepare to enter one of the world’s swiftest flowing rivers, the Clutha River. The Clutha River is famous for its crystal clear fast flowing water showing off its large partially submerged boulders. Here your expert driver will raise your excitement demonstrating the maneuverability of the jet boat pushing it to its absolute limits; skilfully navigating through shallow water, tunnels and over giant pressure waves, speeding past trees mere inches from your face disappearing in your peripheral vision. Of course, a jet boat ride wouldn’t be complete without the iconic Hamilton Spin! A high speed manoeuvre causing the boat to spin rapidly on the spot creating G forces you just can’t get enough of.
Wana Jet has an outstanding record of professionalism and safety with each driver undergoing a vigorous training program before their first commercial trip, so you can be assured you’re in safe hands when you’re enjoying one of the most thrilling rides of your life.
Along the way, the driver will stop for that once in a lifetime ‘snap shot’ and provide commentary of the area and the jet boat itself. Our trip makes the best of blood pumping adrenaline along with some of the world’s best scenery in the background. Wana Jet is a must-do whilst in Wanaka, so come experience the Ultimate Thrill for yourself…
