Jet Boat Ride Makarora River

Jet Boat – Uniquely Scenic

Explore one of New Zealand’s unique, untouched backcountry rivers in a personal way. Get up close with the Makarora River and surrounding picturesque valley wrapped in New Zealand native bush.  


  • Journey to the mouth of the Makarora River and headwaters of Lake Wanaka.
  • Explore the glacier fed waters of the clear blue Makarora River and get amongst native bush and pristine ice capped mountains.
  • Your experienced boat driver will provide informative commentary about the history and landscape.


This area is rich in the history of early pioneers including loggers floating logs all the way to the East Coast. Flax millers and farmers were based in the area.  Maori using the valley as a route to and from the West Coast to collect food and Pounamu.
