Great trip with beautiful scenery and just enough excitment. Boat driver Lex was knowledgeable and looked after the passengers really well. Will from Melbourne proposed to his girlfriend Madelein on the pontoons of the float plane before they flew off from Manapouri. A lovely romantic moment we had the priviledge to share. Well worth tje money.

We highly appreciated the professional touch of the staff of Luxmore Jet in organising the very informative and awesome trip which was not only showing some tricks but having a really relaxing boat trip through the beautiful scenery. One more positive point was that the trip included both river and lake.There were also enough stops to take photos and admire... More

Relaxing more than a thrill seeking ride. Great for littler kids. I think you would do this trip more for the scenery. Excellent value without the fuss of some of the other operators. Great service too. Highly recommended.

This was an amazing tour of the river and lake, with stops to admire the sites where Peter Jackson filmed Lord of the Rings. We got picked up from our hotel and driven to the site where the boat enters the river. Our driver and skipper were both extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. The views and area... More

We absolutely loved this trip! Awesome, tranquil, amazing scenery and great tour guide. Upper Waiau and Lake Manapouri all to ourselves with our fellow jet boaters. A must do in Te Anau for all.

The boat ride was great, with lots of information provided, some high powered and fast turns and spins, great LOTR spots and absolutely beautiful scenery. This ride was safe for me at 7 months pregnant and we were lucky to have beautiful weather. We did not get wet, which was a plus!

This was the last thing we did while visiting Te Anau, and we are so glad we managed to fit it in! Although it was raining the views were spectacular! I would recommend bringing sunglasses if raining in order to take in the views without squinting!! - Mark (the skipper) was very well informed of the area and made sure... More

Great boat ride and beautiful scenery for a family with young children. Loved seeing the trout swimming in the crystal clear waters

Would recommend this ride without hesitation. From the relaxed, friendly bus driver and jet boat operator to the stunning scenic views... this is must if you come to Te Anau. We were lucky to have the boat to ourselves and couldn't stop grinning for the whole ride... and it wasn't just the heated hand rails. Thank you Mark and Lex...... More

We did the Boat Walk and Talk activity for a day of great contrasts. We were picked up on time and taken to the jetboat launch site. After a safety briefing we set off down the river to Lake Manapouri for a thrilling ride and a great commentary from Lex. The Lake was so peaceful floating in the middle with... More
