i think you should include all the fees for the trip in your price instead of being required to
Pay more once I get there.

I think all fees should be included in your price instead of having to pay more once you arrive. Guide seemed a little impatient with everyone.

Hi Teri,

Thank you for your feedback. Having looked over your bookings I can see that all additional costs were detailed on your tickets.  The fees such as Insurance Levy for the Rafting and Environmental Management Charges for the Reef can only be paid on the day but this is detailed on the product listings and your tickets.

The prices advertised on our website are inclusive of the levies.

I hope you enjoyed your activities and time in Australia.

Kind Regards
Alex Roberts

It would be good if the operator can run two types of jet boating experiences. One with more spins and the other with Just a few to cater for different types of customers.

Really good trip; comfy bus and good guide. Would have liked a little bit more focus on the movie locations, though: seems like we missed a few spots along the way and were told about spots after we'd already passed them.

Fantastic ride--like Tokyo Drift on the water! I absolutely loved it, and as a motorcycle rider I found myself leaning into the curves!

It was such a shame your Fox Glacier Flight and Mt John night tour were cancelled due to weather. We were informed of your activity cancellations on the 15th Jan and your refund was processed by the 17th January. Occasionally, it can take a few days to reach your account from ours depending on the transfer time between the banks so we are sorry if this took an extra day or two. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your activities. Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback.

Latest Questions about Jet boat - Dart River Wilderness Jet

Hi did a dart river jet boat ride about 18 years ago then kayaked back up the river and through caves in a inflatable kayak/ canoe do you still do the same trip

Comments

It's called the Funyaks. You take the Dart River jet boat upstream and then paddle back downstream in the Funyaks, inflatable kayaks. Great fun!! You can get free return transfers from Queenstown or you can drive yourself to Glenorchy which is 55 minutes from Queenstown.

Hi me and partner are 70+. the walk on the dart jet trip, how hard is it.

Comments

Hi Tony, the walk on the Dart River Safari is a 30 minute walk through native forest. There are plenty of photos stops and the walk is more of a meander so it isn't strenuous and very gentle but you will need supportive footwear for the rolling track. If you are comfortable being on your feet for 30 minutes walking then you will be absolutely fine.

please could you confirm that the Dart River Safari Tour is appropriate for our 4 year old. she is 110m tall.

Comments

Hi Alison. Yes your 4 year old can go on the Dart River Safari tour with you as she is over the 100cm minimum height requirement. There is no charge for her as she is under 5 years old.

My Wife and I will be in Glenorchy on the 3rd. or 4th. of March 2014.
Is it possible to join the Dart Rivrer Safari from there.
If so, at what cost per person.
Regards
Bill

Comments

Hi Bill. Yes, you are more than welcome to meet at the Dart River Jet Safaris shop in Glenorchy rather than taking the free transfers from Queenstown. The price is still the same at $219 per adult. You will need to check in at 8.30am for the morning tour or 12.30pm for the afternoon trip. There is currently space on the 3rd and 4th January at this stage however this is a very busy time of year and both days will book out soon so I recommend booking asap via our site. Once you book online we will email your booking confirmation to you.

Thanks.

Comments

Hi Monica. Yes the Dart River Jet Boat Safari tour does include return transfers from Queenstown to Glenorchy. January is the busiest month of the year in Queenstown so I recommend booking asap so you don't miss out.

We would like to do the funyaks option with our daughter who is 9 1/2yrs. Can 3 of us ride the one kayak?

Hi Shane, yes the 3 of you certainly would be able to go in the one Funyak. Three adults wouldn't fit but you'll be fine with two adults and your daughter.

My husband and I are looking at taking the Dart River Safaris on 1/10/13. The Shotover boat looks really fun too. Can we do both? or is the boat on the Dart River tour the same?

Comments

Hi Sheri. Yes you can certainly do both jet at tours while in Queenstown and we do actually recommend that you book both as they are very different jet boat rides. The Dart River Jet Boat Safari is a scenic half day trip through the stunning Mt Aspiring National Park where as the Shotover Jet is a 30 minute thrilling ride through the narrow Shotover Canyons. I recommend booking the Dart Safari at 8am and then the Shotover Jet at 3pm which will give you time to grab some lunch in town in between rides.

Hi - Do you stop anywhere for a bite to eat on the 6 hour trip?

Comments

Hi June, the Dart River Safari does not include any meals so you may like to take a snack with you.  Generally, you will have completed this trip in 4 hours, either before or after lunch. It's a 45 minute drive from Queenstown to Glenorchy and then the boat ride is 1.5 hours.

My husband and I will be in New Zealand in March. Your Dart river safari with funyaks has been recommended. My husband was injured in an accident and has no use of his left hand. I can paddle and guide a canoe. Would we have trouble navigating the funyak? Thank you.

Comments

Hi Anita. I have spoken to the manager at Funyaks and this will not be a problem. As long as your husband is able to get in and out of the canoe (funyak) then you will be able to paddle and steer from the back and he can sit in the front and enjoy the ride. If necessary, one of the guides can join you both in the funyak to help make things a little easier for you.

waht clothing is required for this journey in September and do you pick up from Queenstown

Comment by: Belinda on 22nd Aug 12 at 21:21

Hi Belinda, although you may get a sunny day it can still be very cold in September so we suggest still taking along a jacket, hat and gloves if it is on the cold side. The wind chill will be cold as the boat travels at speeds of up to 80km/h so make sure you have plenty of layers on. Yes, Dart Safaris do pick up from Queenstown
