Southern Scenic Jet, located by the Historic Clifden Suspension Bridge on the Southern Scenic Route 15 minutes north of Tuatapere, offers jet boating trips down the thrilling Waiau River.

See the stunning beauty of Western Southland as you travel down the once mighty Waiau winding its way through valleys to the sea. Our 30-40 minute duration jet boat journey takes you past limestone cliffs, farm land, and native beech forest. As well as the spectacular scenery, you'll be treated to an amazing variety of bird life including the nesting sites of the worlds most endangered gull, the Buller’s Black Beaked Gull, plus a variety of migratory and wading species. Along the way, feel free to ask our knowledgeable local drivers about Maori and European history in the area, geography, flora and fauna, local farming, and nearby attractions.

We also offer fishing charters and helijet trips, and other trip options available.

Note: We are open 7 days a week from 10am to 4pm, but trips are weather dependant. During winter bookings are essential.
