An adrenaline-pumping experience you'll never forget! Jump aboard the Discovery Jet and blast along Canterbury's ever-changing Rakaia River.
Discovery Jet operates every day from Rakaia Gorge, weather and river conditions permitting.
About the trip
The ride is very scenic, with as many calculated twists, turns and spins as customers want!
There are stops along the way where your driver will talk about the area's tourism, history, flora, fauna, geology and local personalities.
Trips vary from shorter rides to full-day charters. We can tailor-make a jet safari for you.
Some examples of trips we offer include:
A foot-to-the-floor adrenaline-pumping ride
The double thrill of a heli-jet combo
Being taken to fish remote stretches of the Rakaia
A jetboat photographic safari
What to bring
A camera for fantastic photo opportunities
Sunglasses, sun cream and a warm jacket, as well as hat and gloves if you feel the cold
Life vests are provided.
Where to find us
We are based on the north side of the Rakaia Gorge bridges (the other side of the river to the Rakaia Gorge Camping Ground). There is a riverside car park from which you can walk to the river's edge where you will find our yellow Discovery Jet boat.
Bookings are essential.
Contact us directly on 0800 JET BOAT (0800-5382628).
We look forward to hearing from you! If you have any questions feel free to call and ask.
