Discovery Jet

Ashburton

Our drivers know the river better than anyone and will unveil to you all its treasures and provide you with access to spots others can only dream of. If you want time on your own, they can drop you off at one of the many remote islands or sandy beaches along the river where you can make your own fun, or simply sit and savour the tranquility and splendour of your surroundings.

Description

You'll need to hang on tight as our driver skillfully weaves the jet boat through the intricate network of braided river channels, skimming along stony banks and through gushing opalescent blue waters rich with salmon and trout. As you journey through the gorge, the wind ripping through your hair and water spraying with every carefully-calculated twist and turn, soak in the dramatic scenery. Scrub covered hills give way to towering coal and limestone cliffs, in captivating hues of grey and brown, which have been carved out over millions of years. Spot the shags sitting atop the cliffs, poised to dive on their unsuspecting prey, and marvel at the grandeur of the snow-capped Southern Alps. Scream with excitement as the driver spins the boats 360 degrees and the magnificent scenery blurs before your eyes. We strongly advised to check weather forecasts before booking.
