Why do we love this

We love that this tour allows us to operate our very own jet ski (no experience required!) It's such a fun way to explore Queenstown's most famous lake/


Lake Wakatipu is an inland lake in Queenstown, on New Zealand's south island. It's surrounded by impressive alpine mountains and filled with hidden bays and wild shorelines.


On this all-inclusive, one-hour guided tour of Lake Wakatipu, you will get to experience all the stunning scenery that this area has to offer. It is an incredible and memorable way to see one of New Zealand's most beautiful locales. If you love water sports and adventure, then this thrilling, high-speed jet ski ride is the perfect activity for you.


Your tour will be led by a qualified jet ski expert, who will teach you how to safely operate your very own Seadoo jet ski! If you've never driven a jet ski before, don't worry. This tour is suitable for beginners and experienced jet ski operators alike. Your guides will be there every step of the way to ensure you feel comfortable "behind the wheel". They will also share stories and facts about the lake and its history throughout the tour.


If you prefer not to drive, that's okay too. Each jet ski seats two, meaning you have the option to ride as a passenger if you've got a friend willing to drive instead.


All tours depart from Queenstown Bay, located on the lakefront in central Queenstown. They run for approximately one hour once you've left the bay. Please allow up to two hours for the whole experience including check-in and instruction.


Departure times are as follows:

8.45am (summer only), 10.45am, 12.45pm, 2.45pm and 4.45pm (on demand).
