My wife and I and two other couples hopped off the cruise ship in Akaroa. The bay and area of Akaroa is very beautiful and scenic with pristine waters, green hills and with stark and steep extinct volcanoes lining part of the bay area.

4 of us were on a cruise and decided to try this out. We were given water proof jackets and life vests. Our driver suggested where to sit for different kinds of experiences. We went out to the sea caves and saw wildlife and then the waves began to increase and the water began to roll. We also cruised past... More

We had a brilliant experience in the jet boat over the Christmas and New Year holidays. The tour was informative, exhilarating and great value. Fortunate to see dolphins and penguins. A wonderful experience I would recommend to anyone coming over to Akaroa.

Great fun to see the entire harbour within an hour. Our driver was wonderful and informative. we went out to the entrance and then all the way to the back. Explored some caves and saw dolphins. The 360 spins were exhilarating and I was surprised at how little I actually got wet. Highly recommended for those who want to tour... More

Brett (Critter) will give you the ride of your life on the jet. You will see some fantastic sights around the harbor and learn some of the history. Hold on for the 360's (donuts). The kids will love it! You will love it!

We had a terrific time and enjoyed both the fast spins and also the trip around the harbour with commentary and snippets of history. A great way to see the area and learn a bit more about it. Hint: If visiting on a cruise ship leave yourself plenty of time to catch the tender. We nearly missed our booking because... More

We had almost an hour on the water at top speed, flying across the harbour to the cathedral cave, the palm gully, the salmon farms etc. Then a handful of spins to get the jet boat thrill. It was the perfect mix for us.

Definitely recommend jumping on board this Jet Boat with Brett. He was a lovely, happy chap who had heaps of interesting information about the area. The boat is quiet fast and the spins were class, definitely gets the heart racing. Our cheeks actually hurt from laughing after we had that good a time. Cheers for a great day :)
