Paul and the team did an awesome job

sharing their knowledge of the river and region
with us. The jet boat ride was awesome, the
perfect activity for a crisp winter's day!

Did the Heli-Jet Combo... with GCH and Alpine
Jet Thrills. Fantastic experience. My son and I
thoroughly enjoy the jetboat ride... canyon
hugging, shallows surfing, replete with a series
of 360's….. topped off with some local
knowledge on the geography, history and
geology. The staff were friendly and welcoming.
As an adrenaline junkie, the ride could have
been a little longer and more adventurous... but
that's a personal preference and not a reflection
on the service. Highly recommended!

Paul and his crew were fantastic!

What a thrilling and amazing experience

on the river! Safety was top notch but doesn't

get in the way of the fun.

The lunch provided was fantastic
and make sure to buy some local cold creek
honey! 10/10 Absolutely would go again!

We took our 17 staff  for what they agreed 

was a fantastic once in a life time experience.
Coffee on arrival, an hour up the gorge with fantastic scenery and lots of jet spins (only a little bit wet)!
Then Wow!!!! - half an hour on the airboat downstream over skinny water, sand and stones .
All this then the most amazing gourmet lunch over looking the river. NO one wanted to leave!

Our Year 6 students thoroughly enjoyed their eye popping jet boat ride and learning about an iconic New Zealander in Bill Hamilton.

What an amazing experience with life time memories created - I highly recommended visiting

the team at Alpine Jet Thrills.

As far as work functions go, we couldn’t have

asked for more! It was a brilliant day out!

An adrenaline filled jet boat ride with the Southern Alps as the back drop - the excitement of being the first to try out the more 'chilled out' Airboat ride - all followed by a sumptuous gourmet burger lunch!

As a kiwi who has had the privilege of traveling overseas a bit, I think you guys have a very unique offering and I'm sure there are many other individuals and corporates who would be attracted to such a bespoke, professional and unique experience (including great food and drink!) which is not spoiled by overtly fussing or pampering, but rather is simply a great, professional operation run by people who are passionate about the river, its environment and have a rich history to share with others.

AWESOME! - Absolutely fantastic experience!

Our company treated us to an end of the year function at Alpine Jet Thrills and it was amazing!

The staff were awesome and very friendly, the jet boating experience was awesome, doing it as a large group was awesome...

What can I say... everything was awesome!

Thanks guys for the fun day!

The team at McEwans had fantastic time on the river to round out 2020. That air boat is a great bit of kit,

it's awesome where you could put it! 

Thanks again for the experience.
