Explore the South Island with Braided River Jet Boating

A truly Kiwi jet boating experience


“I have found jet boating perhaps the most exciting mechanical form of adventure I have ever undertaken. It involves such a wide variety of challenges. There is the beauty of the environment -superb streams, wild gorges, mountain lakes. There is such a multitude of problems to tackle -ferocious rapids, shallow braided streams, formidable boulders and thundering waterfalls. There is the speed, the swift reaction, the sliding around tight corners, the scraping over shallow gravel …  the delight of camping in many lonely, grassy spots, remote and isolated, with only the sound of the river … ” (Sir Edmond Hillary)

We think that describes jet boating pretty well -and it’s what we do!

We’re a genuine small business and we passionately love to jet boat so when you come out a Braided River Experience with us you’ll get the real deal -a genuine Kiwi jet boating adventure.

Enabling folk, like you, to get out on the water to experience the South Island’s gorgeous waterways is our passion, so here’s a sampling of what we offer:


Full Day Braided River Experience

$NZ 1520 for up to 5 persons (from $305 p.p.)

A full day on the river exploring! This is a neat way to experience the river. No set plan or agenda – a picnic lunch packed, a whole day in front of us and a river to explore.

Half Day Braided River Experience

$NZ 950 for up to 5 persons (from $190 p.p.)

Based on the Waitaki River, this trip lets you “dip your toes” in river jet boating. A lovely introductory trip.

Multi-River, Multi-Day Jet Boating

The Ultimate Experience

These trips are something very special. Leaving normal life behind for a few days and just getting out on the rivers, looking around, exploring, experiencing.
