Hukafalls Jet is your ticket to thrills – a half hour of spins, fun and excitement takes you along a beautiful river environment, lined with native bush, sheer rock cliff face and hot water streams. Hold on tight as you’ll be travelling in one of our state of the art jet boats at an incredible 80km an hour!
Along the way our trademark 360 degree spins will leave you with a beaming smile and a heart pumping with adrenaline. And that’s even before reaching the spectacular Huka Falls! From your unique vantage point on the jet boat you will have the best water level view of Huka Falls – New Zealand’s most visited natural attraction.
Hukafalls Jet is the only jet boat company permitted to take you to the base of the mighty Huka Falls. The jet boat pilots are not only well trained and skilled at what they do, there is a fair amount of charm thrown in with the tour as well!
The Hukafalls Jet boats incorporate the very latest technology with improved safety features and black-box technology for improved maintenance and engine efficiency. They also have superior visibility thanks to tiered, ergonomically moulded seats which feature heated and hinged hand rails for enhanced comfort and safety.
The boats are equipped with the added safety of either twin supercharged V6 Buicks or twin 350 Mercruiser V8s. These have up to a combined total of 700hp, with twin Hamilton 212 Jet units thrusting 800 litres of water per second. The boats fully laden get their 14 passengers on the plane in around two seconds.
