Jet Boat Ride, Wanaka


Suitable for all ages

This isn’t a cheap activity but if your kids are thrill seekers and you’re on the lookout for a treat, this is an adrenaline sport that doesn’t have a lower age limit or height restrictions. Lakeland Adventures Wanaka operate jet boat rides from their base on the shores of Lake Wanaka to the Clutha River. The trip is one hour long, so not too long for kids and they’ll tailor it to the people on board, so won’t freak the kids out!

Lots of rentals available at Lakeland Adventure, although these haven’t been personally recommended – if you try anything out and your family love it, let us know here! Rentals include kayaks, bikes, tours include guided fishing and lake cruises.
