Activity description

Experience the thrills, excitement, scenery and commentary, jet boating on the Waimakariri River. This diverse river runs from the mountains to the sea and Alpine Jet Thrills have a departure point at both ends.

You can choose between two categories:

Their “Canyon Discoveries” Tours depart close to Springfield just over one hour west of Christchurch in the spectacular canyon that runs through the foothills of the Southern Alps. You can choose between the Adventure and Canyon Safari Tours.

Their “Braided Shallows” Tours depart from the Waimakariri Regional Park just 20 minutes north of Christchurch. Enjoy spins and speed in the shallow braided section of this amazing river. You can choose between their Braided Blast and Blas Plus Tours.
