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.

Great adventure, great mix of thrills, fun and a nice smattering of local color and history!!

The operators are friendly and very obliging, very patient with all sorts of people and ability levels. Truly exhilarating and a real must do!

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 :)

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

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.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

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.
