We did a morning tour and our driver (Willy) was brilliant.

We enjoyed the drive down the Skippers Road (although not advised if you are scared of heights!)

The Jet Boat was fantastic and while really cold (it is Autumn) was well worth the trip down the road. Saw some great LoTR movie locations (including on JetBoat). Ben was full of fun and did several 360 degree turns - you are warned so can brace yourself. Stunning views and trip is around 3 hours - well worth while

This was a fantastic experience. We would recommend this jet boat ride over the others in Queenstown. The bus ride experience/scenery, with commentary, in and out of the canyon was worth the money by itself. Staff were great. Very highly recommended.

The bus ride to the canyon was a little scary, looking down into canyon from a narrow road. The driver was friendly with a good amount of information. The Jet boat ride was exhilarating with great speeds, 360's and passes very close to to the canyon walls. Awesome fun!
