|A trip with Kiwi Jet Boat Tours up the Rangitaiki River can truly be described as "unforgettable." It's not only the magnificent Ignimbrite walls of the Matahina Lake and ever changing scenery that makes it so memorable, or the witty commentary; it's the exciting and sometimes heart-stopping moments along the way that will linger in your memory for a lifetime.
Our tour starts in the beautiful tranquility of Lake Matahina which is formed by the North Island's largest earth dam. The dam was commissioned in 1967 and underwent major re-strengthening in 1987.
|We then travel 25km up Rangitaiki River passing on the way some of New Zealands best trout fishing, sheep & dairy farms and under tunnelled willow trees. Navigate a natural gorge enhanced by weeping falls, caves and dominating white water rapids culminating at the enigmatic, ignimbrite cliffs of the Aniwhenua Falls.
A thrilling ride with both breath taking excitement and gorgeous scenery. Allow 1 1/4 hours for the jet boat tour that gives you a real jet boating experience!
