Full description
Escape the city and listen to the sweet sound of nature on this thrilling jet boat and canyoning experience at The Squeeze. Opt to include hotel pickup and drop-off from Rotorua or Taupo, or simply make your own way to the meeting point to take part in this memorable adventure.

Begin your journey with a scenic jet boat ride down the mighty Waikato River allowing you to take in the remarkable landscape and learn about the history and legends of the area. Marvel at the 50-meter tall walls of the Tutukau Gorge before disembarking the boat into knee-deep warm water and heading toward a narrow gap in the cliff face to start the challenge of The Squeeze.

Maneuver yourself through narrow rocks and crevasses and be surrounded by serenity as you are totally engulfed in native New Zealand bush. Immerse yourself in the environment and take the opportunity to soak up the atmosphere while relaxing in the thermal waters of a naturally heated hot spring. Two warm waterfalls cascade into the pool offering a serene and unique environment like no other.

After appreciating the tranquility and peacefulness of where you are, prepare for the thrill ride home. Hop back on the boat and hold on tight as the driver brings you back to base at pace. Delight in a pedal-to-the-floor ride involving highly skilled maneuvers and the famous 360-degree Hamilton spins.
