Waimakariri Heli-Jetboat Experience

Waimakariri Heli-Jet Boat Trip

Waimakariri Heli-Jetboat

Fly by helicopter across the Canterbury Plains to the pristine Waimakari River for a thrilling jetboat ride.

Trip Overview

After take-off you will enjoy views of Christchurch City and the spectacular Southern Alps before your helicopter pilot whisks you away on a flight to the banks of the Waimakariri River.

Waiting for you will be the award-winning Alpine Jet Thrills boat ready to blast you down the magnificent braided river at great speed and under great control with their highly trained drivers. Drift around the sweeping river bends in just a few centimetres of water and experience 360-degree spins while you immerse yourself in the magnificent landscape.

Then it’s back on board for the return flight across the Canterbury Plains. You’ll still be buzzing, but when you arrive back at base you will have a chance to catch your breath and reflect on a truly amazing experience.

Allow 50 minutes (approx 20 mins flying, 30 mins jetboat ride). Minimum passenger numbers apply.
