The exhilarating power of the Hukafalls Jet is an experience you will never forget. You’ll marvel at the incredible water-level views of the spectacular Huka Falls as you slide past cliffs and trees at an incredible 80km an hour in one of our state-of-the-art jet boats. Then get ready for our trademark 360-degree spin as the boat turns on its own length, leaving you with a beaming smile and a heart pumping with adrenaline.
The manoeuvrability of the Hukafalls Jet boat is legendary, you’ll awe at the speed and precision in which you torpedo gracefully down the river to play in the tail of the mighty white water of the Huka Falls. You will pass by clouds of steam rising where a hot stream joins the river, you will see the Huka Prawn Park, the Wairakei Geo-Thermal Power Station, and the Aratiatia Dam. You will zoom past sheer rock cliffs with just centimeters to spare, exhilarated and secure in the knowledge that your driver is an expert and that you’re enjoying the most thrilling ride of your life.
