For thrill-seekers and adrenaline junkies alike, embark on a high-octane ride deep into the narrow canyons of the fast-moving Shotover River on this heart-pounding jet boat adventure.

Climb aboard your custom-designed vessel, specifically built for maximum speed and agility, and hang on tight. From the moment your skilled driver hits the accelerator to the floor, the boat takes off, thrusting 210 gallons (800 l) of water a second.

Careen through narrow craggy canyon walls, past rugged multi-colored Alpine cliffs, and over white water. Watch the water sprays sheeting past and the scenery blur as the boat reaches speeds of more than 50 miles per hour (85 kph), sometimes in water only 4 inches (10 cm) deep.

Embrace your adrenaline rush while the boat spins continuously on its axis with full 360-degree turns. For the next 25 minutes, feel your heart pounding as your white-water adventure continues to speed along the dramatic and narrow Shotover River Canyons.
