Welcome to Jet Thrills Christchurch
We have restructured and now are operating our 2 departure points on the Waimakariri River under our new name Alpine Jet Thrills Limited. We are working on a new web site which will combine our current websites www.alpinejet.co.nz and www.jetthrills.com. Our new web site should be up and running by the beginning of June 2018. Should you have any problems with booking for either of our departure points please call us on 0800 26 36 26 or +64 3 3851478 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Jet Boating is a truly unique way of seeing the lower Waimakariri’s braided river system which is constantly changing and ever challenging. Jet Thrills’ experienced drivers, speed and spin in places sometimes only centimetres deep. Our fleet of Hamilton Jet boats make easy work of the swift flowing river as it rushes from the Southern Alps to the sea.
The translation of Waimakariri is ‘cold water’, it is also very clean, which makes it very popular for salmon and trout fishing. On any of the tours provided by Jet Thrills through the Waimakariri Regional Park, one of New Zealand’s newest parks, it is possible to see the many examples of birdlife that make this area their home – Wrybills, Spur-winged Plover and Black Shag.
