This was a fantastic well organised jet boat ride that not only went downstream but also came back right up to the Huka Falls, very enjoyable half hour ride.

Paying $109 for a 30 minute jetboat ride is way too expensive I think. Plus the costs for your pictures at the end. Yes it was amazing, but paying $109 for that??

Great fun riding on the Jet Boat. Everything was a target '360s were exhilirating, getting close up to Huka Falls was great but no history given by guide. Very expensive for 30min ride and photo package also cost too much.

What a top experience in the beautiful north island of NZ! It was thrilling the entire way and loads of fun dodging all of the cliffs and trees along the way! Our driver Mike was a funny NZ character and made the trip lots of fun! this is a must do adventure for anyone travelling NZ with some spectacular scenery along the way; particularly the Huka Falls! A complete thrilling experience!

Glad you enjoyed the trip! Great idea about taking your own camera - anyone's welcome to take their own small camera on board (at own risk) to take a photo of themselves at Huka Falls - the Jet Boat Driver will take the photo for you so you can be in it! Our photographer can catch you in our trademark 360 degree spin though!
