ENERGY JET – HURUNUI RIVER EXPERIENCES
Energy Jet is passionate about helping people experience this hidden gem of a river and our surrounding environment. We are a small family owned business that offers you a real local New Zealand jet boating experience.
As the only jet-boat operator on the Hurunui river, we have exclusive access to over 100km of the river and its amazing variety allowing you to personalise your trip preferences. Enjoy the beautiful scenery of the wild coastline, stunning North Canterbury farmland and pristine alpine snowfed waters as your skipper expertly navigates the shallow river braids & narrow canyons.
Energy Jet can also extend your adventure to combine the thrill of jet boating with scenic picnic options. These feature delicious, fresh locally produced rustic produce enabling you to grab a taste of how kiwis connect with their natural surroundings.
Energy Jet is located just one hour from Christchurch at the bridge of the Hurunui river on State Highway 1.
