The world’s first commercial Jet boat company, KJet offers a high-speed, adrenalin packed Jet boating experience for conference and incentive groups visiting Queenstown.
Established in 1960, and still locally owned and operated, KJet offers groups one of the most unique and thrilling “welcome to Queenstown” activities available.
KJet is all about action, adrenalin and the absolute buzz of Jet boating. There’s a variety of options for the corporate incentive and conference market, including team-building and partner programmes, and transfers to an array of exciting locations around Queenstown.
From the 360 degree spins on the wide open expanse of Lake Wakatipu to the willow-lined, rocky canyons of the Kawarau River and the narrow braids of the Shotover River, KJet guests experience an array of scenic delights en route.
KJet has the largest Jet boat capacity on the Kawarau and Shotover rivers. With the ability to transfer up to 140 people in its eight boats KJet is “unforgettable” and an ideal activity as part of a conference or event.
KJet sales and marketing manager Ginny Goding said the conference, corporate incentive, and event market has “continued to grow year after year”.
“Event organisers are always looking for something different to make their event stand out.
“We’re the only company that can offer Jet boat transfers from the airport to town so we’re a must-do for those who want to kick off their event in style,” said Ms Goding.
“Our ‘Amazing Race’ style team-building events and activity programmes are also hugely popular. KJet is a great group activity and one that’s accessible for all,” she said.
The company operates from two central locations. The Queenstown Main Town Pier is in the heart of Queenstown Bay and the company’s Frankton Road main marina has extensive parking, ideal for multiple buses and just minutes away from the airport.
KJet prides itself on offering a “one-stop-shop” service for conference and incentive groups.
“From planning the itinerary, to liaising with airlines and hotels, every minute detail is taken care of to make sure your event runs smoothly,” said Ms Goding.
KJet is the only Jet boat company covering 43km of crystal-clear waters of Lake Wakatipu and the Kawarau and Shotover rivers.
“It’s an hour of sheer power on the best boats in the district. Real Jet boating with real, down-to-earth, friendly and welcoming local drivers,” she said.
“KJet has operated here for 55 years, as the original Jet boating company we’re proud of our Kiwi entrepreneurial spirit and values.
“Our safety procedures are second-to-none and our team are all dedicated to offering the best, most personalised experience for all our guests.
“We’re also very proud of our beautiful environment – guides love informing guests about their surroundings and the native flora and fauna of this unique environment, ensuring everyone goes away not only pumped and excited but with a little bit of knowledge.”
As well as a marked increase in overall bookings year-on-year, the company has experienced specific growth in the Australian and domestic conference markets.
“The number of Aussie and Kiwi bookings continues to grow. We’re also welcoming larger group sizes, with a lot of bookings of 200+ people.”
“Anyone looking for an hour or more of action packed fun and laughter should jump on board with KJet. It’s an hour of sheer power.”
