Just a short stroll away from the town centre of Cambridge you will find the beautiful Riverside Park and our departure point. On the Waikato River, a.k.a. the Mighty River, you will experience a jet boat ride unique in New Zealand. The scenery is breathtaking while your experienced driver will tell you all about the historical facts of the monuments you pass. If you are into speed and adrenalin we can fulfill that need too! Our jet boats are perfectly well equipped to give you a ride you will not easily forget. V8… need I say more? You will have to hold on! The famous "360 JET SPIN" will certainly see to that. Camjet is also an ideal event for your business functions or team building sessions. We will provide something you will talk about for a long time! For these group activities we can combine with other local activities to offer you a full day of entertainment in the Waikato. For group bookings we offer discounts.

Great fun, really good value, kids were buzzing after this. You get to see parts of the river and its inhabitants that you wouldn't normally see because the banks are so steep between Cambridge and Karapiro. We caught a glimpse of a giant (Catfish?) as we stopped to check out the fish.

Wow! This is a must do activity if you are even close to Cambridge, it is worth the drive. A mixture of excitement, fear, laughter and interesting facts about the Waikato river and surrounding area. We have been on many jet boat tours but this was by far the best! Really good value for all age groups for an afternoon... More

An excellent way to get the adrenalin running and the heart pumping. If you think your asleep or dead inside then take a ride. With a variety of tours from a leisurely cruise up to the dam and back or a heart stopping race with 360 spins, this is a must do for anyone aged 10 upwards.

We went on the Camjet 50 minute jet boat ride to the power station / dam. My youngest is only 5 and he is a small 5 year old but had an absolute blast going through the narrow gorges and doing 360s. Nice scenery and a knowledgable guide tailored the ride to our requirements. Good equipment, all safety gear and... More
