The World's Most Exciting Jet Boat Ride – Thrilling gift experience for a child – Queenstown Nothing you have experienced will have you prepared for the excitement and thrill of a Shotover Jet ride. It's an adrenaline rush you'll never forget! From the moment the accelerator hits the floor your adrenaline hits the roof as you speed along the famous Shotover River and deep into the Shotover River Canyons. As the towering, rocky Canyon walls tower over you, your driver skilfully whips the boat past rocky outcrops, and skims around crags and boulders. Rock faces blur in your peripheral vision, the opaque water sprays into myriads of white crystals with every turn, you grip the safety rail for comfort and reassurance and let out a whoop of excitement as the driver spins the boat around in its own boat length and you experience the 'trademark' Shotover Jet 360 Degree Spin! You’ll also stop briefly along the Shotover River while your driver highlights historical landmarks and points of interest. No visit to Queenstown is complete without ‘Catching the Canyons’ with Shotover Jet, ‘the world’s most exciting jet boat ride’ and the only company permitted to operate in the spectacular Shotover River Canyons.
