Clutha River Jet


Experience one of New Zealand’s iconic adventure activities in some of the world greatest scenery; the jet boat. Departing from Wanaka’s waterfront enjoy a 15 minute 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.

Here, this New Zealand designed and built jet boat is truly at its magnificent best, skimming across shallow water, over rocks and sandbars, powering through rapids and giant pressure waves of New Zealand’s largest river.


This is where our skilled drivers will raise your excitement levels, performing Hamilton Spins and manoeuvres putting the jet boat mere inches from large boulders and trees accompanied by speeds in excess of 80kph.


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. Trips can be tailor-made to suit our clients – from gentler scenic rides to ‘ALL OUT’ Jet Boat adventures raising adrenaline levels through the roof. Clutha River Jet has an outstanding record of professionalism and safety with each driver going through a vigorous training program before their first commercial trip, so you can be assured you’re in safe hands.


Our trip makes the best of the lake and river with scenic cruising and blood pumping adrenaline combined into one trip. Clutha River Jet is a must-do visitor experience whilst in Wanaka, so join us for an hour of adventure and a lifetime of thrilling memories.
