Mark, the skipper of the jet boat, makes a fun experience even better with his anarchic style of humour and very personable manner - not to mention his considerable professionalism.

Much has been written about the trip itself so I won't repeat what others have said, however, be prepared for an 'all round' experience.....this will become clear if you are fortunate enough to be entertained by Mark and his amazing jet boat!

Enjoy!!!

"A jet boat on the road" between the east and west coast of South island new zealand. An ideal stopover during a long and nice trip. The activity is safe and wel organized. You are "sailing" quickly in nice and clean gorge. The security is optimal. Only one thing ake care for the flies you need repellent

We had a great trip with Mike on the Buller Canyon Jet. Just like being out with a mate on a jet boat. The best fun! Cheers Penrose Family

Had a great day out with Mark today! He is so knowledgeable about the local area and such a skilled driver who managed to have both my daughter and myself relaxed by the end of it!
