Owner description: 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.

Had a fab trip out on the lake last Sunday with Nick. Gorgeous day to get wet... definitely recommend back seat for drench factor! Really enjoyed the informative stops mixed with the speed & turns. Loads of laughs & a really memorable time - thanks to all involved. Tracey :)

Definitely the highlight of my trip to Rotorua. Wow what an amazing experience, the jet boat trip across the lake was simply incredible and the guide was really informative. Our whole family really enjoyed this awesome experience. My son and I were also fortunate enough to go parasailing which was totally amazing. Some wonderful memories for our family - thank you so much K-Jet.

Very very cool experience. I never imagined I would be parasailing at all as I'm quite scared of heights, but this experience wasn't going to stop me. It's something everyone should do at least once in their life. Being propped high above the lake and a wonderful scenery around you, this will definitely make your trip very worthwhile in Rotorua. It's something you can't fully describe until you're up there.

If you're planning to go to Rotorua, you definitely need to do this. Worth every cent.

Thank Joseph I

As someone who doesn't do air well, this was an amazing experience and I recommend it to everyone. The crew were great, very relaxed and explained everything well. So incredible to be up floating in the air looking at the lake and the surrounds in a different way.

Hi there, Thank you so much for your review. So glad you enjoyed your time parasailing with us. You do indeed certainly get a great view. Sometimes you can even see over the ridge to see Mount Tarawera.I will pass on to the boys that you felt at ease with them as they really do a great job. Next time come and have a go with us Jet Boating. Once again many thanks.
