Shotover Jet’s 50th Anniversary Special

In 1965, two brothers with a boat and a dream started a business on Arthurs Point Beach in New Zealand. That dream has turned into Shotover Jet Services, the first jet boat operator in the world to have been in operation for 50 years. Shotover is known throughout the world as the premier adventure tourism operator in Queenstown.

Shotover Jet consistently provides unique trips for each passenger, of which they’ve had quite a few – over 3 million – and they have even been visited by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II back in 1990.

To celebrate this milestone, Shotover is providing free rides to anyone who is 50 years of age this November. If you were born between 01 November 1964 and 30 November 1965, you are eligible for a free ride – just show up with your passport, strap on a life jacket, and get ready for the trip of a lifetime!

Dear Kit, The trip to Bay of Many Coves could not have been more perfect for us. Thank you for taking the time to listen to what I was trying to accomplish. I found being able to talk to you and to have you be knowledgeable about the area to be of great help. Thank you so very much for this experience. If we ever venture to this part of the world again, I will ask you to help us again. I hope our future travel experience are like this…I am afraid you and your group spoiled us!
