Activity description

Get the jet boat experience of your dreams at the best possible price with the Scenic Blast!

A driver from New Zealand Riverjet will cruise down the beautiful Waikato River. It will allow you to take in all its beauty. He'll be happy to tell you about the wildlife and native NZ birds in the area. He also has some exciting stories to tell about the Maori tribal wars from New Zealand natives hungry to claim this beautiful land.
