This is undoubtedly New Zealand’s best jet boat ride and one trip you don’t want to miss! Travel 83 kms (return) along grade 3 rapids strewn with huge boulders which lead you to the wild south coast, the last place in New Zealand to lose the sun each day. There is time to take a nature walk along the beach and into New Zealand’s largest and oldest Podocarp forest. Lunch is at the remote Waitutu lodge. Bring your own or order our BBQ on arrival. This full day trip departs on demand from Otautau, Tuatapere or Lake Hauroko (117 kms South of Te Anau). Min. numbers apply. All safety and wet weather gear provided.
