Tekapo's unique jetboat experience gives you the opportunity to connect with New Zealand’s most beautiful lake. We are the only licensed jet boat operation on Lake Tekapo.

Without question, Tekapo Jet is the most spectacular way to view the captivating beauty of Lake Tekapo. Your magical journey with us starts from Pines Beach on the southern shores of the lake. From there, you will head up the lake and around Motuariki Island. You will be treated to gorgeous views of ancient glacial valleys and remote high country sheep stations in the distance. You will also stop at some of Lake Tekapo's iconic landmarks where you will be able to take stunning photos.


Our professional drivers will provide an informative commentary about the lake, its rivers and its majestic surroundings. And of course, as you marvel at the beauty that surrounds you, you will be thrilled with manoeuvres and spins that will keep you smiling. At the end of your tour, you will leave with some amazing photos and everlasting memories of a unique opportunity to connect with beautiful Lake Tekapo.
