New Zealand River Jet

Adventure Sports in Taupo

New Zealand River Jet will zip you to Orakei Korako in thrilling fashion along the Waikato River and beneath the 50m-high cliffs of Tutukau Gorge. It also offers the Squeeze jetboat ride, where you disembark in warm water and make a canyoning-style traverse through a crevice to a concealed waterfall surrounded by native bush (adult/child $189/99).

Boats leave from the office, beside Mihi Bridge, 34km north of Taupō on SH5.
