What people are saying about Queenstown Underwater Observatory
The ride was just awesome. We had a driver that was very motivated and had fun himself. I also did the 1 hour Go Orange trip, but this one is much nicer. I like that you get to see the two different rivers, but not too much so that it would be boring after a while. If you have to decide between the different offers on riding a jet boat in Queenstown go for this one!
Was definitely fun, but be prepared, the first 10-12 minutes are very harsh on your back as you go over many, many bumpy waves head-on, in order to get to the calm part of the waters. same with your return. Ouch...! Was still fun, but a bit painful :)
We had a great time! We were lucky enough to be in the front seat, yet really did not get too wet--just some spray, but no waves crashing over us. There are several jet boat tours, so we just had to pay attention to which meeting place to use.
An hour is no where nesr long enough! Could stay on this all day was such a good time, driver was really friendly and full of facts and the 360 degree spins were awesome!
Was a fantastic experience. Felt safe and had lots of fun. Knowledgeable about the river & surrounds too. Thanks for one of our highlights of our holiday
