Wilderness Jet Experience

from $299

The ultimate, original half-day Wilderness Jet boat adventure takes you on an unforgettable journey along the braided, glacier-fed Dart River. Experience the unique combination of breathtaking scenery and an exhilarating ride as we take you deep into Mount Aspiring National Park – a UNESCO World Heritage Area.

This exclusive jetboat access to the largest sections of the Dart River means we can cover up to 90km of scenery during a group trip. Our jet boat tour is the longest ride in the region, which is perfect for those looking to take their time to see the sights and truly immerse themselves in the natural beauty. Dart River Adventure’s knowledgeable guides lead our eco tours with passion and authenticity. Their stories bring the scenery to life—from Māori legend to the area’s Greenstone trail—there is something to learn around every corner.

The ever-changing environment makes every trip unique. With daily and seasonal changes to the flora and fauna, colour of the bush, river structure & colour, water clarity, birds, wildlife, and snow level, returning for a second adventure can mean you explore a whole new world.

The Wilderness Jet Experience is a 2-hour trip with morning and afternoon departures. Timings are detailed in the “Trip Details” section below.
