Adventure Jet Boats And International Franchisor

Thank you for your interest in our new venture.

We are the founding fathers of commercial adventure jet boating; world jet boat racing champions, world-renowned commercial jet boat designers, builders and operators; adventurers, outdoor enthusiasts, and top-level corporate executives.

We came together to build an international outdoor adventure company, Adventure Jet Boats International, and be the only international franchisor specializing in adventure jet boat tours for thrill-seekers and adrenalin-junkies.

Adrenalin-Pumping Thrill-Ride for Every Age

Our service is an adrenalin-pumping thrill-ride in a high-powered, twin-engine commercial jet boat speeding through some of the most spectacular scenery in tropical destinations and on exotic waterways in over 140 locations worldwide.

Our jet boats are designed by the world’s best and built to American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) classification, which ensures the safest and most satisfying authentic New Zealand outdoor experience, outside of New Zealand. They’re soft-riding and highly maneuverable. They accelerate to a top speed of 55 miles per hour; spin 360 degrees within their own footprint, drift and power-slide with incredible ease and come to a sudden-stop in spectacular water-splashing glory.

The Utlimate Jet Boat Experience

Imagine a rollercoaster ride in open water: Your experience begins with the onboard sound of music slowly building as you depart the pick-up area. Approaching the “fun zone” your adrenalin begins to pump faster. Suddenly the onboard music explodes and the two engines roar as your jet boat launches--- your body, mind and spirit all engage at the same moment.

All of your senses are in tune: Breathtaking scenery, two ferocious-sounding engines, nature’s smell of water and landscape, the feeling of freedom, and the taste of fear and delight at the same time—and then it begins… power-sliding, 180 degree spins; and water everywhere. It’s the perfect experience for every age!

Born in the Outdoor Fun-Park of New Zealand

The “jet boat” is a New Zealand born concept created by Bill Hamilton in 1953. It was first commercialized by Wanganui River Jet Tours in 1963, which was once owned by our shareholder and founding father, Vance Crozier.

Today, commercial adventure jet boating thrives thanks to New Zealand pioneer-companies like the Shotover Jet, Rapids Jet (founded by Vance Crozier), Kiwi Jet Tours (founded and owned by Bill Roberts) and others who entreat and thrill thousands of travelers who visit New Zealand’s breathtaking outdoor fun-park.
