Cheers to Nick, Brendan and Ollie who were informative and understood that as tourists we defs want to stop to take yet another photo of NZ beauty. The 360 spins in the boat are a laugh and worth the splash from the Dart River. Special cheers to Ollie for the nature chat!

Thank Kelsie B

We went for a jetboat ride early morning. It was freezing but it was worth it. The uninterupted views are to die for. Our guide is very knowledgeable and very passionate in doing his job.

We did the Wilderness jetboat tour today and were truly amazed at the views. Snow-covered mountains and the sun desperately trying to come out. The jetboat driver, Craig was very knowledgeable with the trip taking us into Mt Aspiring National Park through the convoluted braided rivers of the Dart where we learnt about Ngai Tahu Maori history. The views were spectacular and the jetboat had lots of thrills with 360° turns and getting up close and personal with the rocks. We even saw some punamu (jade) by the river. As a world heritage area you can look but leave everything so future generations can enjoy. We had well over an hour and the disembarked to go on a nature walk through an ancient beech forest. Our guide again was very enthusiastic and informative. From there we had a 40 minute 4WD trip through the local cattle and sheep stations where many movies have been shot. I highly recommend Dart River Adventures when you visit Queenstown.

Thank Kiaussi
