Jet Boat Tour

Experience a spectacular guided tour of Skippers Canyon followed by a thrilling jet boat ride through the dramatic canyons of the Shotover River.

Come with Skippers Canyon Jet and experience unbeatable value as you are taken on a spectacular guided tour of Skippers Canyon followed by a thrilling jet boat ride through the narrowest canyons on the Shotover River.


The Jet Boat Tour begins with a guided drive into historic Skippers Canyon with on board commentary from our knowledgeable drivers. You will be escorted into a land rich in gold mining history and stunning scenery via the infamous Skippers Road which was carved out of the vertical rock face by miners over 120yrs ago. Getting there is half the adventure! 

Once on the boat you will feel your adrenaline surge as you power deeper into Skippers Canyon through the dramatic canyons of the Shotover River. Our highly skilled jet boat drivers manoeuvre the boat just inches from the sheer canyon walls and keep the excitement levels high with speeds in excess of 80kmh and a series of full 360 degree spins. Skippers Canyon Jet Boat Tour is the only jet boat ride where you get to experience historic gold mining relics that still remain in the river and Lord of the Rings locations.

Skippers Canyon Jet is THE must do jet boat trip in Queenstown.
