Thrills and Spills in Queenstown – Jet boating with KJet

Queenstown is a stunning little town in New Zealand’s South Island, located on beautiful Lake Wakatipu. But there’s nothing sleepy about this scenic lakeside town. Known for its seemingly endless adventure activities with numerous ways to explore the lake and waterways.

I always wanted to experience Jet boating and had heard lots of great things about KJet. KJet has been providing Jet boating experiences in Queenstown for over 60 years so I figured they knew their stuff. I hopped on the jet boat and the rest was history. This was one of the most amazing experiences ever!

Here’s 5 reasons why my KJet experience was one to remember:

1. Pure adrenaline

There were loads of spins! 60 minutes and 45 km of pure adrenaline and stunning scenery.

2. Skilled & Passionate team

We stopped to catch our breath and checked out some points of interest. Luke, our driver told us more about the history of the rivers and the local area. KJet is a family owned business and Luke, was super skilled and passionate about his job and ensured we had a memorable time.

3. Views of both rivers

We blasted across the world-famous Shotover and Kawarau rivers – both were beautiful!

4. Super convenient

It was conveniently located – I just wandered on down to the Queenstown Main Town Pier and booked my adventure. Boats leave every hour so it couldn’t have been easier. Some other Jet boating tours require you to go slightly out of town to hop on the boat, so this one fit better into my day.

 

5. Bang for buck

I could combine it with Bungy Jumping and the Queenstown Gondola and Luge to get a cheaper price on all my activities!
