Enjoy thrills, fun and excitement as the Hukafalls Jet takes you on the ride of your life along one of New Zealand’s most stunning rivers. This part of the Waikato River is lined with native bush and natural hot springs, sitting at the base of the legendary Huka Falls. Hukafalls Jet is the only jet boating company permitted to take you here.

You'll be safe in the hands of expert drivers as the boat travels at incredible speeds and executes thrilling 360° spins. Enjoy the unique vantage point from water level and marvel at the deafening sound of the thundering falls - one of New Zealand's most visited natural attractions. The exhilarating power of the jet boat will get your heart pumping as you zoom past trees and sheer rock cliffs with just centimetres to spare. This is a must-do Taupo experience!

Your Hukafalls Jet experience includes complimentary return transfers from our Taupo coach stop.
