The jet boat was specially designed for the Waiatoto River by Neil Ross former National and world champion jet boat driver, and unlike other jet boat rides in New Zealand Jimmy did not have to ‘pretend’ to go near the rocks. We zipped through the rock garden in The Gorge and all the ricks were right there!
The Hamilton Turns gave me face ache from smiling, and a cruise up the Hinely, one of New Zealand’s most peaceful waterways finished the trip off nicely. This is New Zealand’s only Alps to the Coast jet boat trip and I highly rate it. Don’t go through Haast without checking it out then stopping of for the best fish and chips on the Coast at the Cray Pot, Jackson Bay
