Jet Boat Ride on Waikato River Including Tutukau Gorge and Orakei Korako

Zip around Rotorua on a jet boat, passing through majestic Tutukau Gorge on your way to the geothermal reserve at Orakei Korako. Some of the most active geysers in New Zealand bubble and boil at Orakei Korako, and you get to walk around the park to see its otherworldly beauty up close. When it's time to go back, enjoy a high-speed ride back on the Waikato River.
