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 views”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Great views of the lake & the city. The guys on the boat are very good & make you feel at ease. You get high enough to see for miles. Getting dunked in the water is a must.

“Thank you Fiona, Ross & Nick!”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

thank you for hosting us over the weekend!, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I had sore cheeks from smiling so much and laughing at how wet my husband got because he didn't do his splash jacket up properly. Great fun for all ages and you even learn a bit of history about the area which is very interesting, even for a local NZ'er! Would definitely recommend to all.

“DO THIS!!!!!!!”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

I had read reviews about Kawarau Jet Rotorua but was still unsure whether it would be a big disappointment. My son and I had a excellent time. Our driver Eric was so informative with his knowledge of Rotorua. It was everything I had hoped it would be. I couldn't stop smiling even when getting sprayed with water. I would have happily gone a second time. If you want adrenaline than this is for you!! Just AWESOME!!!!!!
