What you'll love


This is an exciting quad bike tour across stony braided riverbeds, dense rainforest and thick mud. Enjoy a cup of tea or hot chocolate, view the spectacular glacial fed rivers and listen to the Maori tales of pioneers from past times. All wet weather gear and safety items are provided.



Take a scenic Gondola ride on the Southern Hemisphere’s steepest Gondola for quick and easy access to Queenstown’s most spectacular views. The Gondola rises 450 vertical metres above Queenstown on an average incline of 37.10 to the Skyline complex on Bob’s Peak

The Luge is a fun-filled gravity ride for all ages and abilities. Two Luge tracks are situated above the Skyline complex on Bob’s Peak and are accessed by chairlift or walking track. The fun doesn't stop when the sun goes down; after sunset, the Luge tracks light up for Night Luge. Once is never enough! Luge (two tracks) are open to at least 8pam and later in peaks times. 



The Original Jet boat experience in New Zealand. Only KJet offers over 60 minutes of unforgettable thrills, spins and exhilaration across three waterways in one of the world’s most stunning locations! The twin engine Jet boat excursion begins by crossing crystal clear Lake Wakatipu surrounded by majestic mountains and stunning scenery. Then zoom under the Kawarau Dam onto the deep green waters of the Kawarau River complete with 360 degree spins before navigating the fast–moving currents of the narrow, braided Shotover River, travelling up shallow channels in water that’s less than 10 centimetres deep in places. 



This is an extended and leisurely cruise of Milford Sound on board the Milford Mariner or Milford Wanderer. There is plenty of time to explore points of interest and to view the stunning scenery - such as waterfalls, rainforest and towering peaks.



With its exciting, sometimes scandalous, sometimes tragic history, its magnificent carved ceilings, New Zealand antiques and breathtaking views, Larnach Castle offers you a vision of the past and present. Today, the Castle is the home of the Barker family, who have spent more than thirty nine years lovingly restoring the building and recreating the beauty of the 35 acres of gardens and grounds. The Garden is a private garden open to the Public. Open 9am - 5pm daily 9am - 7pm from October until the end of daylight saving (April).



For this tour you need to make your own way to the departure point which is Wellers Rock Wharf, Otago Peninsula. It is about a 45min drive from Dunedin.

Our crew give you a full commentary about the wildlife, history and geology as the boat explores the stunningly beautiful and rugged coastline close to the entrance of the Otago Harbour. You will see uninterrupted views of the world's only mainland nesting place of albatross. You may be lucky enough to see the Northern Royals soaring and banking on three metre wings. Watch the NZ Furseals breed, fight and play on the rocks around their breeding rookeries. The endangered and impressive NZ Sealions are returning to the sandy beaches around the area. Out at sea you can spot rarely seen ocean birds including other albatross species and petrels, and you may see penguins, dolphins and other marine mammals. Don't be put off by cold, damp or windy days, the local wildlife love it - we often see more activity in a cool southerly wind!

Warm jackets are provided and the aft deck is enclosed and heated. Binoculars and commentary are provided.
