If you’re planning a visit to the Wanaka area, make sure you have time for a ride on the Wana Jet with Lakeland Adventures. This 60-minute jet boat tour is ideal for families (with children over age four) to spend a day exploring the rugged beauty of New Zealand’s South Island.

At the start of your voyage, you will have a chance to observe the serene waters of Lake Wanaka as your expert boat driver shares commentary and history about the area. Don’t forget to look out for local wildlife, including trout. From there, you will enter the Clutha River, where you can choose to continue your peaceful journey or embark on a heart-stopping jet boat ride. If you opt for the high-speed adventure, prepare to be amazed as your captain guides the boat through the crystal-clear water, pulling off extremely tight twists and turns.

This popular Wanaka jet boat trip departs three times per day, all year round. Guests are encouraged to wear warm clothing, but the tour operator will provide you with spray jackets and life jackets for your journey.

Interested in adding a bit more physical activity to your itinerary? Take a look at the Wanaka Jet Boat and Wilderness Walk tour, which lets you get hands-on with nature from both land and sea.

During this time, your driver will perform incredible boat stunts at 80kph, including 360-degree spins.

After you’ve gotten your blood pumping on the jet boating tour, disembark and explore the region by foot, discovering ancient forests and waterfalls. Your guide will provide historical context as you walk through the breathtaking scenery.
