From Pier 3A on Auckland’s downtown waterfront, beside the historic ferry terminal, the purpose built jet boat takes visitors on a thrilling supercharged 30 minute trip upon Auckland’s harbour.
Having been invented in New Zealand in 1954 by Sir William Hamilton, Jetboating is synonymous with New Zealand, a must-do experience for thrill seeking tourists, combining adrenaline inducing high speed manoeuvres in spectacular locations. Sweeping fishtails, spins and power brakes make the experience a fast and fun adventure for the thrill-seeking traveller of any age.
Auckland Adventure Jet has the latest in Hamilton technology coupled with unique sea jet boat design that sports the fastest sea jet of its kind on the Auckland Harbour. Skiting 24 seats in a grand stand layout so that everyone experiences a great view of the scenic Waitemata Harbour and getting the adventure jet treatment.
The jet boat travels at high speeds in excess of 50 knots under the iconic harbour bridge stopping beneath the Bridge Bungy pod to wave at the fellow adrenalin junkies suspended high above. Auckland Adventure Jet makes a few stops at significant landmarks including the Chelsea Sugar Factory and the tree lined cliffs of Kauri Point to take in the sights and catch a breath.
Groups and corporate clients can tailor experiences; uniquely the jet boat’s design allows access to shallow waters, such as the harbour’s beaches and secluded coves.
