We booked 'The Squeeze' and jetboat on a whim having seen a leaflet and thinking it looked awesome and it didn't disappoint! Our captain, Jeremy was a great driver and very knowledgable about the area and it's Maori history and most of all heaps of fun! He also gave me a great lesson in how to say proper NZ place... More

His maori prayer near the start of the tour was inspirational, his knowledge of local history was eye-opening, also mixed in with plenty of humour and his exceptional driving skills. We had a blast and our sons were commenting for the rest of... More

Our journey back... More

We survived a fun jet boat ride on Friday the 13th due to our excellent driver/guide JeremEy. We all loved Jeremy's Maori prayer at the start and enjoyed hearing about the local history and Maori culture. Scenery was amazing - would definitely recommend!

Family day out with two teenagers in tow, we all had a brilliant time on The Squeeze experience. Jeremy our driver, has a special way of connecting with everyone on board with real NZ flavour beginning with a Karakea, very informative tour of the area & many laughs were had along the way. Thanks for the memories!
