New Zealand's Jet boating history dates back to 1953 when Sir William Hamilton invented the world renowned Hamilton Jet. Soon after, in the summer of 1960, Kawarau Jet was born in Queenstown, becoming the world's first commercial Jet boat operation.
With such a successful history it was decided that the same experience could and should be enjoyed by visitors to the North Island's cultural adventure capital Rotorua, so there is now the Rotorua operation.
Operating three purpose built jet boats for the last five years they have been using high octane biofuel containing 10% bioethanol. All their boats use the tried and trusted Hamilton 212 jet units.
It will be trip to remember!
