Experience ~ Dart River Jet

Wilderness Jet-Boat Safari

Journey deep into the heart of the world-renowned Mt Aspiring National Park, where myth, heritage and fantasy come to life.

Wilderness Jet-Boat Safari

Our private Dock serves as the perfect launch pad for this unique combination of breath-taking scenery and an exhilarating ride as you follow the braided, glacier-fed rivers by jet boat. Your guides give you their authentic touch, talking about the area’s rich history, the Greenstone trail and countless Maori legends. After tying up the boat, take a short walk amongst the ancient beech tree forests – an atmosphere you may recognize from The Lord of the Rings films.

Funyaks (kayaks)

Combine the exhilaration of a wilderness jet boat ride with a leisurely downstream float on the easy to use Funyaks (inflatable kayaks). Ideal for families to explore the truly unique Dart River.  Following the jet boat ride up the Dart River deep into the heart of Mt Aspiring National Park, travel back down river at your own pace in the unique Funyaks.  Explore pristine waters as they flow from the Southern Alps to Lake Wakatipu, hidden side streams with amazing rock pools and dramatic chasms.
