Upon arrival at Rapids Jet Riverside HQ you will be introduced to your experienced Rapids Jet Skipper. He will explain the safety procedures of the trip and answer any questions you may have. Then you will be fitted with a Rapids Jet personal floatation device, otherwise known as a Lifejacket.
Once aboard one of our 3 jet boats with 500hp V8’s be prepared for an adrenaline rush!. The V8 power muscle’s you up and down the Nga Awa Purua Rapids easily. Your Skipper when not telling you to “Hang On” will point out some of the amazing scenery of the Aratiatia Reserve, Native Bush, steaming hot springs and crystal clear waters.
After the ride you are welcome to gather at the photographer’s area, relax on the deck and check out the awesome photographs of your Rapids Jet experience where you have the option to purchase them.
