      Great ride
      Exciting jey boat ride. Daniel was a great driver. Very informative commentary about the places along the river. The spins were fun too.

      Fun day!
      We got the video and so glad we did it was hilarious! There is a great viewing platform of the jump right from the café for those who might want to come and support.

      Amazing fun packed day, incredible staff, incredible location
      The staff were amazing and extremely welcoming. They made us feel super safe and comfortable doing the bungy jump. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone who is after a thrill. Beautiful staff, beautiful views, such an awesome day.

      Fabulous experience - well worth the effort. Careful, safe, fun, once in a lifetime ...
      The jet boat experience was probably the best I have had in NZ - the girl running the boat was highly experienced, fun, informative, safe, careful where she had to be and made the whole trip a thrill for my overseas partner. The bunny jump was well controlled, well put together and very well executed. Recommend this place highly ... and the chief cook / bottle washer / barista / money taker and photo editor did a great job ... thanks team ... will be back.

      Bungy Jumping in Queenstown
      We conquered our fears and took the plunge in Queenstown! Bungy jumping was such an adrenaline rush, with incredible views to boot.

      Fantastic experience
      Absolutely amazing time on the jet boat We were in the back row and had the best of the turns and spins. Got slightly wet which made it even more fun. Maddy was our driver, she had lots of knowledge of the area. The whole team at Hanmer Attractions were very helpful. Just watch the walk back up from the ride, it's a killer if you're not fit. We all had a fantastic experience.

      Jet Boat Hanmer Springs
      Jet boating on the Waiau Uwha River at Hanmer Springs is exhilarating, exciting and beautiful. Check in was simple using an iPad they provided. After receiving lifejackets and a safety brief we walked down a steep slope to the jet-boat. The ride was very fast, but the guide clearly knew what he was doing and gave us a thrill. You will get wet! Thanks to Daniel; he not only thrilled us with his driving skills, but also shared some information about the river and surroundings.

      Beautiful scenery on a river “float”
      Very pretty scenery and the company was great to deal with. The rafting was just significantly less wild than other tours I’ve been on in the past. More of a float down the river. So if you’re looking for heart pumping rapids this might not be the option for you.

      Loads of fun!
      This was so much fun! My sister and I had both our daughters with us (11 & 13) who also loved it. The tour was a decent length of time and the guides were hilarious and knowledgeable. I admired their respect for health and safety and made the rules very clear for everyone traveling together. The scenery is gorgeous and there are some water crossings that provide a bit of excitement. All in all, 10 out of 10 for our experience.

      Awesome family rafting
      My daughter and I had a great experience with Tully as our rafting guide. The trip was broken up with additions, such as jumping off rocks into the river, swimming with the raft and lots of fun splashing! There was no rush to get finished and the jokes kept coming. The trip back on the jet boat was a great end! The whole team were friendly and focused on fun and safety.

      Kiwis on the road Exhilaration + experience 10/10
      Little miss 11 was bricking it (not a big boat fan) MIss 13 was very excited. Daniel was friendly and up beat and put her at ease. Once under way lots of screaming ensued but not from fear from exhileration. What a great experience, we thought value for money for a family (4) activity. (autumn specials prices). We had second row seats and We got a bit wet but not saturated. Sadly the weather was a bit clagged in so the scenery wasnt as great as it normally is but it was neat to be on the water. A fun filled ride which both girls ranked as 10/10 and would do again. we spent the extra and got the pics and videos, they like the experience did not disappoint. Thanks Hanmer jet boats! We highly recommend this for a fun family activity.

      Excitement Plus
      A fantastic experience, with great insights provided by skipper Mike of the area, geology, landscape, water flow, Jet Boat development along with the essential safety briefing. All this was over and above the excitement of the Jet Boat ride in a beautiful location. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

      Amazing Experience
      An absolutely incredible experience. The views were amazing and the staff were incredible. It was my wife and my first jump ever! And we can honestly say we are both absolutely stoked we did it! We highly recommend it! 😁

    We had heeeeaps of fun white water rafting the Waiau river. Enjoyed the experience of a relaxing boat trip interspersed with the adrenaline rush of going through the rapids and getting a refreshing spray (it was a hot day). A small amount of jeopardy when we were enjoying swimming behind the raft and then we had to move towards the bank in time for a jet boat to dash past (we had plenty of time and weren't in any danger but it's something to be aware of). We had a long rafting trip then given a jet boat trip back. And even got to see someone bungy jump off the bridge. A memorable day, suitable for all the family (as long as the kids don't mind getting wet!)

    Today our family went rafting. The experience was amazing and a must do, on your adventure journey. Tom was our guide and he was the best. We experienced beautiful scenery, completed rock jumping into the Waiau River, coupled with a swim down stream. We were then picked up and transported upstream in the jetboat.
    Overall as a family this was so much fun. Our guide Tom, made sure we were safe and well looked after on this adventure. We left tired and happy, and grateful for this awesome experience!

    Can't wait for our next visit.

    Was nervous about doing the rafting but was soon put at ease by the instructor and others who had done it before. Had a blast of a time. An experience I will never forget. I even jumped into the river (which I wasn't going to do). The jet boat ride back to base was the icing on the cake.

    Whole experience worth the expense. All equipment provided beyond what is mentioned in the description.
    Both activities a lot of fun. Quads great, only realised at the last minute that the 15 year old couldn’t ride solo, so used a buggy instead.
    Guides were great and adjusted the experience to who was in the boat.
    Jet boat ride home was an added bonus that we all enjoyed!

    Awesome rafting trip with a spectacular jet boat finale. Tully was a great and entertaining kaiārahi/guide. River was high, but rapids not too intimidating, excellent for beginners and families.

    A great experience both quad biking and rafting. Set in stunning scenery. 4 of us went and we all had a blast. Off roading on the quads was a little scary to start but we soon got the hang if it. The rafting was a breeze with opportunities to jump off rocks and swim or drift along in the river.
    All great fun.
