“Most enjoyable Jet boat experience ”
Review of Discovery Jet

Discovery Jet
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

I've done jet boat rides across NZ. This was the most enjoyable out of all due to the scenery, guide, & the ride.

Definitely heading back with work colleagues for a social outing to get out of Christchurch for a day trip.

If you dont think you have time to get into the back of beyond, this trip is set to prove you wrong. A quick squirt up the river in Blair's boat can see you deposited on a river bank in complete solitude. You can just chill out and wait for a return pick-up, tramp out, or link into some of the other activities partnered by Discovery Jet.
The jet boat was invented in NZ, and this is a great way to experience it in its 'natural habitat'. If you have never been in one, this is an excellent and affordable way to have a great experience.

Had the chance to experience the Jet Boat Ride up into the Rakia and have to say it was awesome!! Blair was a great host and really knowledgable about the area and answered any questions that we had.
Great thing to do with a group.

Spectacular views from the boat even when going like the clappers, thoroughly enjoyable trip.
Blair shares his extensive knowledge of the region which adds to the great experience. He does hunting expeditions and clay bird shooting among other activities. Won't be long until I'm back up there!

A great experience, thanks for the blast up the river. Even for someone who has spent a lot of time in the area, it was fantastic to see the stunning scenery from a very different vantage point. Great knowledge of the area to.
