Check Availability




We commenced operation in November 1990 as Huka Jet, with one boat and a driver relocating from Shotover Jet in Queenstown to a small wooden shed on the banks of the Waikato River, 700 metres upstream from its current location. In this first year of operation Huka Jet carried around 1,200 passengers.In 1998, Huka Jet relocated to a site adjacent to the Prawn Farm, now known as Huka Prawn Park. A purpose-built building and new two-berth jetty were built on site and opened in December of that year.Since then the business has gone from strength to strength and secured its position as one of the leading tourism businesses in the Taupo region and one of the leading jet boat companies in New Zealand’s North Island.
