Shotover Jet


The Shotover Jet is one of the first family-friendly adventure experiences unique to Queenstown. Take a thrilling ride through the Shotover River canyons and be sure to hold on as your driver will likely err on the side of adventure versus caution. The boat operates every day of the year (apart from Christmas), so be sure to dress appropriately, as it can get quite chilly whipping around during the winter months.
