Combining some outstanding fishing with an amazing water borne adventure, this unique "jet boat fishing" experience in New Zealand's Te Anau is not to be missed! Offering the best balance between jet boating and charter fishing, this adventure allows you to get doses of both scenery and adrenaline, first drifting down Te Anau's Waiau River for some Rainbow and Brown Trout fishing and then enjoying the jet boat journey back up the river through the heart of the picturesque Fiordland National Park.

With a 4 hour tour of Fiordland and the jet boat ride back, this is a wonderful way for you to get two great experiences in one - ideal for those who might be a little short on time or want to devote the rest of the day to another activity in the Te Anau region.

Michelle. W 4 years ago This was hands down for me the best thing I did in the Fiordland region. The Sound cruises are spectacular, however you are with hundred of other people on board and it can be very touristy. This trip was just me, the driver and one other person and we were completely alone on this amazing river surrounded by nothing else but nature and its beauty. The fishing itself was unreal and it was so much fun learning how to fish for Trout - i even caught myself a little beauty!! The driver was so friendly and gave us some history about the river. If you are a family travelling together or a group of friends, I would highly recommend this!
