My family of 8 had a blast on this jetboat ride - thrills and spills, a great barbecue lunch to look forward to, plus a superb host in Roffy - fun, knowledgeable and professional. Two thumbs up!

Humpridge Jet Wairaurahiri Adventures is a world class jet boat tour. The landscapes are simply breathtaking and the ride is more than thrilling. Our tour also included a lunch that beyond amazing with home made food. This jet boat ride is a serious contender for "Best Jet Boat tour in New Zealand". Impressive!

Although it's a few years since we did this trip it was a real buzz and everyone in our party had a great day, it's not something you would do on a regular occasion but a must for those that enjoy a thrill and a darn good day out, we had a ball from start to finish.
