Best birthday treat on a wet day 17th birthday skydive called off due to weather. Went down to Rapid Jet to see if we could get a ride [having done Huka Falls jet previously] and the team at Rapid Jets could not have been more understanding or welcoming. They made everything easy and the kids totally loved the ride.......35 minutes of adrenaline charged fun leading to HUGE smiles when they got back....and an awesome photo package for not huge $$$$ Well done!

YES! BY FAR the best Jet Boat company I've ever been on. Lots of information of movies being set in the area, all of the team has great genuine customer service, the location feels hidden & less commercial. It's a great time and although a wild ride, I felt safe at all times & I don't think anyone would leave this place disappointed./div>

Best thing I did in New Zealand This is a must do for anyone visiting the North island. Brilliant experience and a great adrenaline rush. Well organised company and friendly staff. The power of the boat was phenomenal especially when it went through the Rapids. Beautiful stretch of the Waikato river to go down as well. If you are thinking of doing a boat trip while in the area then do this one.

This was the absolute highlight of our three week holiday to NZ. Stunning scenery, awesome staff and Simon, our jet boat expert gave us the ride of our life while making us feel safe at all times and pointing out interesting facts along the way. The photo package at the end was great value for money, amazing photos and a great reminder with the smiles plastered on all our faces. This is a must do on your NZ holiday. The only regret you'll have is not doing it!

The jet ride was so exciting and I will never forget the feeling of speed. The explanation to surrounding ecology, landscape and environment did enlighten our experiences. Look forward to having another chilly and water splash next time.
