Shotover Challenge and all transfers – from $319 PP

This adventure package combines an adrenaline charged jet boat ride on the thrilling Shotover Jet with an action packed white water rafting experience.

Power through the spectacular Shotover River canyons for 25 minutes on the ‘world’s most exciting jet boat ride.’  Your expert jet boat driver will skirt the sheer canyon walls as you race your way down the river, and execute exhilarating full 360 spins for the ultimate jet boat experience before you hit the wild water on your rafting adventure.

Begin with an unforgettable road transfer from the jet boat base into the incredible Skippers Canyon and  paddle up at the start point of your rafting trip. Meet your river guide here and begin your rafting experience from Deep Creek.  Paddle peaceful waters to begin with and gain expert instruction for the exhilarating rapids that lie ahead in the lower canyon.

The adrenaline pumps as you paddle the rapids of Aftershock, Squeeze, Toilet, Oh Sh*t, Pinball and Jaws to name a few.  Raft the 170m Oxenbridge Tunnel before shooting Cascade rapid to complete your adventure.
