THE SPECTACULAR SHOTOVER CANYONS. ONLY WE CAN TAKE YOU THERE!
The only way to experience our Canyons, see their beauty and feel their power, is to come on a journey with us, the world’s most exciting jet boat ride. A unique combination of beauty and power, it’s an experience like no other, blending pristine natural landscape with wall to wall canyon action from start to finish!
Proudly owned by Ngāi Tahu, the Māori people of this land, their connection to the Kimiākau (Shotover River) goes back centuries. As the home of our tīpuna (ancestors), this place is part of Shotover Jet – they are the only ones to have access to the spectacular Shotover Canyons and no one knows the area like they do!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Exclusive access to the Spectacular Shotover Canyons with the only company permitted to operate within them. Shotover Jet is the world-famous jet boat ride.
From the moment you leave the jetty, your adrenaline hits the roof. You’ll speed over water as shallow as 10cm, experiencing 360-degree spins along the famous Shotover River and deep into the Spectacular Shotover Canyons. As the only company permitted to operate within these canyons, it’s an irreplaceable white water ride.
The high-performance boats are made for speed, travelling at up to 90 kilometres an hour. As the Canyon walls tower over you, your expert driver puts the state-of-the-art Jet Boat through its paces, riding the rapids and performing thrilling, gravity-defying stunts within a hair’s breadth of the awe-inspiring cliff faces.
Get ready for wall-to-wall canyon action from start to finish! There are no lakes here.
Each jet boat ride is approximately 25 minutes.
