The Waimakariri River, or the Waimak as it is called by the locals, was named by a native New Zealand Maori tribe and means "Cold Water". The Waimakariri River travels a total distance of 126 kilometers - from its birthplace in the rugged Southern Alps through steep rock faces and thick native forest, through the braided shallows on the Canterbury Plains, then out to the Pacific Ocean. The crystal clear waters of the river often allow views of salmon and rainbow/brown trout while the shingle beds in the river are home to nesting birds. The Waimakariri is one of the most jet boated rivers in New Zealand and you will quickly understand why, as the spectacular scenery unfolds before you.

Their friendly and professional staff hopes you will enjoy your New Zealand jet boating tour with them and they give you their assurance that you will be in the best equipment available and the jet boat drivers you will meet are the best in the industry.

Alpine Jet is looking forward to giving you the highlight of your New Zealand vacation!
