World famous as the ultimate jet boat experience, Shotover Jet has thrilled over three million people since 1965. Operating within the Shotover River’s spectacular canyons less than 10 minutes’ drive from Queenstown, you’ll find our jet boats skimming across as little as 10 centimetres of water, reaching up to 90 kilometres per hour. Shotover Jet was one of Queenstown’s first adventure activities and continues to be at the forefront of jet boat innovation. Combining the New Zealand invention of the jet boat with the Kiwi culture of adventure, Shotover Jet has helped to put Aotearoa on the global tourism map.
