For an adrenalin-pumping experience you'll never forget, jump aboard our Discovery Jet and blast along the ever-changing Rakaia River. Discovery Jet is the the only certified commercial operator through Maritime NZ on the Rakaia Gorge. You'll need to hang on tight as our driver skillfuly weaves the jet board through the intricate network of braided river channels, skimming along stony banks and through gushing opalescent blue waters rich with salmon and trout.
As you journery through the gorge, the wind ripping through your hair and water spraying with every carefully calculated twist and turn, soak in the dramatic scenery. Scrub coverd hills give way to towering coal and limestone cliffs, in captivating hues of grey and brown, which have been carved our over millions of years. Spot the shags sitting atop the cliffs, poised to dive on their unsuspecting prey, and marvel at the grandeur of the snow-capped Southern Alps.
Scream with excitment as the driver spins the boats 360 degress and the magnificent scenery blurs before your eyes.
Our driver knows the river like the back of his hand and will unveil to you all its treasures and provide you with access to spots others can only dream of. If you want time on you own, he can drop you off at one of the many remote islands or sandy beaches along the river where you can make your own fun or simply sit and savour the tranquility and splendour of your surroundings.
We can tailor-make a jet safari for you. Whether you want a foot-to-the-floor adrenalin-pumping ride or the double thrill of a heli-jet combo, or if you simply want to fish remote stretches of the Rakaia or take a jet boat photographic safari you will experience the best boating New Zealand has to offer with Discovery Jet.
