Words from the riders...

Queenstown Jet Boat Rides

At Goldfields Jet we take pride in being 100% NZ owned and operated. We are also proud to have a 100% safety record, across all our activities, since opening in 1991. We know it’s a privilege to live and work in one of the most stunning areas in the world – we get great satisfaction from seeing our visitors appreciate the unique beauty and unforgettable experiences of the Kawarau Gorge. We look forward to sharing it with you too!

Your experience starts as soon as you arrive in the stunning Kawarau Gorge and are greeted by one of our friendly, fun team. After a full safety briefing, head down to the banks of the mighty Kawarau River and step aboard one of our high-spec, purpose-built V8 jet boats – your 40-minute adrenaline journey is about to begin!

Navigate the shallow, braided waters of the Bannockburn arm at epic speeds, power upstream through the breathtakingly narrow Kawarau Gorge, racing past canyon walls before arriving at the base of the impressive Staircase Rapids. The only ride to offer you shallow water and deep rapids in one adrenaline-filled hit, with multiple 360º spins thrown in for good measure! No need to look anywhere else – experience the best.
