Paul (Mac) Macaulay


the CEO of Auckland Adventure Jet has been involved in river jet boating for most of his life. Born and raised in South Canterbury Mac bought his first farm in Temuka at 18 years old.

Looking for a new challenge he used to his passion for jet boating as inspiration. The Macaulay family decided to move north and introduce a well built South Island machine to go where no jet boat has gone before... Downtown Auckland.
