    What to Expect
    Select from several departure times at booking and head to the jet boat base in Hanmer Springs to board your powerboat. You'll experience the ultimate ride with a skilled driver at the helm, who maneuvers the jet boat down the Waiau River. Speed over white-water rapids and through steep gorges while the boat negotiates the narrow river channel.

    Skim over the crystal-clear waters of 6-inch-deep (15-cm) riverbeds through braided shallows and hold on tight during 360-degree jet spins while you attempt to take in the scenic river views during your 30-minute adventure.

    Great fun down the braided river and through the gorge with explanations of some of the geographical features and also how the jet boat works from our driver Christian. Think the kids particularly loved the 360 spins with plenty of splash around the boat after recent rain. Care
