Spin and speed your way to Huka Falls during a thrilling 30-minute jet-boat ride on the Waikato River. Hold on tight as you zip over the crystal-clear waters past rugged cliffs and native bush on New Zealand's longest river. Feel the power of the thundering waterfall up close as it blasts into the turbulent pool. Round-trip transport is included from hotels in Taupo.
What to Expect
Get ready to experience the ride of your life during a Waikato River jet-boat ride. After pickup from your Taupo hotel, it’s a quick drive to the shores of New Zealand's longest river, which drains Lake Taupo. 

Your adrenaline-pumping adventure takes you to the mighty Huka Falls, considered the country’s most visited and photographed natural attraction. Get a dramatic front-row view of the 36-foot-high (11-meter) waterfalls as they thunder through the ravine with incredible force.

Listen to entertaining and informative commentary during 30 minutes of jet-boating excitement, complete with 360-degree spins past cliff faces and native forest. Your white-water adventure ends with hotel drop-off in Taupo.
