Alpine Jet Thrills Braided Shallows 1

Since 1984 Alpine Jet Thrills have been showing thousands of international and local passengers what jet boating is all about. From the exciting 30 minute 'Braided Blast' and the 60 minute 'Blast Plus', to the 90 minute Jet Trek, an amazing combination of Horse Trek and 'Braided Blast' with Waimak River Riding. If you want to get off the ground to see some more of the river and surrounding area then the Heli Jet is definitely the way to do it.
