Exhilarating jet boat ride through the spectacular gorges of the Waimakariri River on 27 February 2012 near Christchurch, New Zealand. I will put 6 videos of this ride to give a perspective of a jet boat ride. The jet boat ride lasted about 30 minutes. I put the camera down when the Jet Boat Driver signalled a 360 degree turn to protect my camera. We did aroung 6-7 360 degree turns at high speeds.


We were told that tourism is down over 40 percent in Christchurch, New Zealand since the major earthquake on 22 February 2011. For example, the jet boat driver told us that our group of three were the only ones booked today in this incredible beautiful weather.
