Skippers Canyon and Shotover River Jet Boat Adventure

Skippers Canyon and Shotover River Jet Boat Adventure
88.94 €
Activity type : Cruises and water sports
City : Queenstown
Booking unavailable

Just north of Queenstown, you can experience the ride of your life as you twist and turn down the Shotover River and through Skippers Canyon at high speeds. Your blood will be pumping as your jet boat maneuvers through an obstacle course of sheer cliffs and overhanging walls, fishtailing, power braking and doing 360-degree spins. Not for the faint-hearted, this is the ultimate, pure-adrenaline jet boat ride.

Your adventure starts the moment you board the bus in Queenstown and travel into Skippers Canyon on the “road to riches,” so-called because it was the route taken by gold-seekers. The road has hardly changed since it was first hand-carved from the canyon’s rock walls and sheer cliffs by miners more than 140 years ago. Sit back, relax and enjoy the canyon’s magnificent scenery as your driver relays the history of the region.

Tight, narrow channels, overhanging rocks and old mining relics embedded in the river make this an obstacle course like no other. Admire the scenery before you get in the boat, because as you hurtle down the river at speeds of up to 50 mph (80 kph), you won’t have time to be impressed with the beauty of Skippers Canyon. 

Hold on tight as you skim the shallow, 6-inch-deep (14.4-centimeter-deep) river beds and the boat does its best to thrill you with fishtails, 360-degree spins and power brakes, leaving you exhilarated, breathless and eager for more. This is the ultimate in jet-boating.
