Where's the best place to go jet-boating in Queenstown?
The Shotover Jet is definitely the most exciting of the jet-boat trips in Queenstown. If you haven't done it before, you'll love it!
I seem to have deleted my previous comment by accident, but anyway, I agree with Scott. I didn't find the Shotover Jet to be scary like some people, but it was definitely exhilarating flying through the canyon with outcrops looking like they were about to take our heads off! I think the only jetboat experience that could come close is the Huka Falls Jet in Taupo, which I haven't been on but I've seen going up very close to the base of the waterfall.
This trip is best done if you can put aside a whole day to experience the tranquility of the area.
