We offer unique hydro flights over Lake Wakatipu on the Jetovator - ride the hose on our purpose-built bike powered by the thrust of a jetski - or try out one of our other hydro flight products like the Defy Jetdeck or the Shred Sled. Our skilled jetski drivers create customized flights for flyers of all ages and abilities.
Hydro flight is a sport anyone can learn and it only takes 5 – 10 minutes of practice, before you'll be flying above the clear water of Lake Wakatipu. Your experienced instructor will be on the attached jetski craft, controlling the thrust (and therefore how high you fly), as well as offering tips and advice as you go. That all means you just have to concentrate on which direction you want to go and enjoy the adrenaline buzz.
