Shotover Jet

Blasting through the canyons

Thrill seekers. Shotover Jet.

Shotover Jet, the original jetboat company, has been blasting through the Shotover River canyons from the beach at Arthurs Point with guests since 1965.

Book one of the options online, either drive or take the bus (included) out to Arthurs Point, and get mentally prepared for a thrill on the river. These are the big red boats and they fly.

You can also ride the big yellow boats of Kawarau Jet that operate from Queenstown Wharf, cross the lake and rip around further down the Shotover River.
