Make a Splash on a Jet Boat Experience with Hukafalls Jet
Jet boating Taupo is a quintessential experience that you can’t miss, whether you’re a tourist or a local. On this 30-minute expedition, your expert captain will take you on a route filled with twists and turns, as you zoom along the water at speeds of up to 80kph.

Feel the incomparable thrill of 360-degree spins as you whip through the dazzling landscape of the Central North Island, which features bushland areas, rocky cliffs and natural hot springs. This is, of course, in addition to the highlight of the journey: the spectacular Huka Falls.

This trip includes return transfers from your Taupo accommodation, or you can choose to meet your crew and fellow passengers at the Wairakei Tourist Park. The tour departs every 30 minutes during daylight hours, operating between 9.30 am - 4.30 pm in summer (October through April) and 10 am - 3 pm in winter (May through September).

Save by Bundling Your Jet Boat Ride with More Activities
While you’re in Taupo, why not experience some of the other one-of-a-kind adventure activities available in the area? Fortunately, there are a handful of combo trips that you can bundle with your jet boat ride to experience another side of this stunning region - and save money while you’re at it.

One of the most popular bundled trips is the Huka Falls Jet Boat & Heli Combo. With this tour, you will take part in a scenic helicopter ride with Helistar before embarking on the equally dazzling jet boat ride with Hukafalls Jet.

The 15-minute flight will expose you to the Māori Rock Carvings, which depict the life and stories of Ngatoroirangi, a famous Māori navigator. The carvings are indeed a sight to behold, especially from a bird’s eye perspective in a helicopter.

You’ll also see the Wairakei Geothermal Fields from above, with a chance to admire the vibrant mineral deposits and bubbling pools of mud and steam. As a bonus, your pilot will also take you to see the Huka Falls from above, before you board the jet boat to view them from the water.

If you want to take your holiday to the next level, opt for the 4Play - Skydive, Bungy, Heli & Huka Falls Jet Combo. This excursion is best suited for real daredevils, as it blends tandem skydiving, bungy jumping, helicoptering and jet boating into a single package - and all over a single day. It’s a great way to maximise your time and budget.
