What to Expect

Begin your tour at our office to get fitted for your bike and helmet plus a spray coat and life jacket.

Take a short bus ride to the boat ramp where you'll board the boat with ease thanks to convenient ramps. After a short safety brief it's time to hit the water!

Travel down the Upper Waiau River with crisp air rushing by, crystal-clear waters below and stunning views all around. Pause along the way to learn about the area and it's rich history, have some laughs, spot trout, re-imagine Lord of the Rings from 3 film locations and listen to native birds as your driver quiets the engine. Enjoy plenty of photo opportunities plus high-speeds and spins - which are great fun for all!

Emerge onto Lake Manapouri and embrace the silence while surrounded by towering mountains and a view that will leave you speechless.

Disembark into the National Park for a short guided nature stroll among native flora and fauna.

Jump back in the boat and head back up river for more FUN!

Back at the boat ramp your bike will be waiting to travel the designated cycle trail 10km/7mi along the river's edge back to Te Anau's town centre. The trail is well-formed and just requires a moderate level of fitness.

Fabulous experience - fun and interesting
Did this with my kids (in their teens) and parents (in their 70s) and all loved it. It was a thrill of a jet boat ride but with enough stops along the way to learn a few things and appreciate the stillness and nature. Stopped at a beach at Lake Manipouri to stretch the legs and hear a little about the wildlife - and then returned to Te Anau. Easy check in and short mini bus trip to the river. Thankyou to Jen and the excellent Chris. Would highly recommend this activity.

Highly recommend
We had a wonderful time with Fiordland Jet, it was a 2-hour jet boat ride with our driver Lex, and then a 20-min walk through the Kepler's Track. Lex was very friendly and knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed our ride and walk with him. Also kudos to the booking team for allowing us to change timings/dates for the ride at short notice when our flight was diverted due to bad weather. Really professional and understanding! Will recommend booking through them for an awesome experience!

Fantastic experience
Our family had a wonderful time. The trip was fun, spectacular and educational. We had the chance to go kayaking and even jump into the freezing fiord water! The food was great and all the crew friendly and accommodating. A unique experience!

Highly recommend the “Big Day Out” experience
We chose the combination trip which was an absolute amazing experience from beginning to end and ran so smoothly. The jet boat ride with Chris was awesome with stunning scenery, expert commentary and those amazing spins and thrills on the water. This was followed by a fabulous helicopter trip allowing a great view of the spectacular scenery and a landing on a snowy site. The helicopter dropped us at Fiordland Lodge where our host Andy provided us with 3 gourmet platters - seafood, meat and dessert. A quick transfer after lunch back to the dock and the glow worm trip. A solid day of sightseeing that ticked all the right boxes for us. We couldn’t recommend this highly enough and every person involved was just wonderful, friendly and informative.

Must Do This....
The experience was, in a word, “awesome”. Thanks to young Chris, the jet driver, who not only gave us the most thrilling boat riding experience of our lives in one of the most naturally breathtaking lakes in the world in Manapouri, but he also provided us with a fantastic opportunity to learn about the area. Got to drink the pristine water of the lake to boot.

Excellent trip
We had a great trip down the river, despite the weather not being so fantastic. Even in the drizzly rain it was an epic trip. Adrienne kitted us out with all the gear which also included hats, gloves and sunglasses. The blankets and the heated hand rails in the boat made it extra cozy warm. Young Chris was an excellent driver and really knew his stuff. Not only was the scenery amazing, but it was also thrilling and exciting. Would definitely recommend.

Highlight of the trip!
I was looking forward to this most of all on our trip and it definitely did NOT disappoint! A massive thank you to Chris for being flexible around our plans to give us the best jet boat experience, and for the mountain bike hire to keep us busy while the weather cleared. This was such an epic way of taking in the amazing scenery, both on the water and our adventure along the Kepler Track. You can even brave the Fiordland winter on the jet boat in shorts because they have blankets and heated hand rails to keep you toasty warm. I absolutely recommend it as a must-do if you're in Te Anau/Fiordland. Thanks again!

Amazing Tour!! Can’t wait to do it again!
We drove from Queenstown specifically to do this tour and it didn’t disappoint! Adrian did a great job of organising our tour last minute and around our schedule. Thanks to young Chris and Jen for making the tour informative, fun and action packed. The two-hour tour had so many sites to see including the Lord of the Rings movie scenery. Even in winter the ride was made comfortable with jackets, blankets and heated rails. I’d recommend this tour for all ages and to make the most of the Southlands, stay a night or two in Te Anau as there are many different tours available which can be organised through Fiordland Jet. Thanks again FJ Team. We’ll be back again.

Unforgettable experience in Te Anau
The staff is very friendly and really knowledgeable. I enjoyed the scenery from the boat and during a short walk, and also have learnt a lot about Lake The Anau. They stopped the boat's engine sometimes and I could hear the sounds from nature, whish is extremely peaceful and beautiful. I did this in the winter but I had a wonderful time, without feeling freezing. They provide some hats, groves, neck warmers and blankets that customers can borrow.

Great knowledge and banter. Would highly recommend this experience. Helicopter ride, with Matt was smooth, beautiful scenery and got some great pics. If you want to see the beauty of Te Anau in a fun way - this is the way to do it.

Great Time!!!
Being early June we had the tour all to ourselves! Off season/shoulder season is a great time to see New Zealand. Adrienne was very helpful showing us around town as to where to eat and gave us discount tickets to view a short movie on New Zealand that was showing at the movie theater (obviously this wasn’t part of the tour, it was quite nice of her to do this). Lex was our skipper. He was funny, informative and obviously loves what he does. Initially, I thought I forgot my phone to take photos so he took one of us with his phone and later Adrienne emailed it to me. Realizing I actually did have my phone he was kind to take time in our return back to shore so I could take photos. The views were amazing, the fog made the views mystifying. Also docking for a short time on land to learn about some of the plant life was interesting. Can’t say enough good tho ha about this tour and people.
