Overview

If ever a tourism operator lived up to its catch-cry of speed, spins and adrenaline, it’s Kawarau Jet. You only have to look at the smiling faces of passengers when they get off the big yellow boat to know they’ve had an awesome experience. With a wide range of exhilarating and inspiring activities to choose. Ourtrips range from 30 minutes of speed spins & adrenaline to 2 1/2 hours. Combined jet boating with the Manupirua Hot pools. This is only accessible by boat. No roads here. Great fun for all ages. Or try our Parasailing. We offer ten minute flights either tandem or solo. Sit back and enjoy the exhilaration of free flight and admire the great scenery, before returning to the flight deck for a smooth landing on our purpose built Parasailing boat.

If you’re like me & have a fear of falling (very different from a fear of heights), then this experience is perfect for you! You float up very gently, and do the same coming down. No tummy dropping in the slightest. And while you’re up...More

Yes parasailing is great for all. We had a 85 year old lady last week with her younger brother. Thank you for your kind words of the Skipper. He is indeed very experienced and is always full of concentration. cheers Fiona
