Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Make your way to the Auckland Ferry Terminal for a safety briefing, then put on a provided spray poncho and life jacket before boarding the jet boat for your 40-minute ride. Hold on tight as Auckland’s fastest jet boat accelerates with incredible speed into Waitemata Harbour. 

    Feel the adrenaline rush as you race down the harbor at speeds up to 62 mph (100 kph). Your expert driver maneuvers the vessel with amazing agility and performs fishtails, 360-degree spins and power brakes throughout the hair-raising jet-boat ride.

    Watch landmarks of Auckland’s city skyline whiz past, including the Sky Tower. View the Harbour Bridge and the Hauraki Gulf volcanoes in the distance before you’re whisked back to shore.

    Would give zero stars if I could due to the absolutely horrific service. Showed up at the listed address on maps 30min early to find no one around, no boat, no explanation of where to go. Instructions on booking only state pier 3a, which has been closed for construction since

    We went on Auckland adventure jet today, Nate was our skipper. He stopped every so often to make everyone was ok. Don’t do what I did and not take a change of clothes, every single piece of you will be wringing from head to toe. The 180s were so much fun. A good water sport for

    Despite it being a choppy day in the harbour, our entire group was laughing and cheering for the entire tour. The location was very easy to find, the check in process was very quick and before you know it you are on the boat and away. Our group ranged from 7-62 years of age and
