KJet offers ‘adrenalin fuelled fun’ for conference and incentive groups
Established in 1960, and still locally owned and operated, Queenstown’s KJet offers conference and incentive groups the ultimate thrill experience and is one of the most unique “welcome to Queenstown” activities available.
KJet is all about action, adrenalin and the absolute buzz of Jet boating, offering a variety of options for the corporate incentive and conference market, including team-building and partner programmes, and transfers to an array of exciting places around Queenstown.
The adrenalin-packed Jet boat experience gives guests the ultimate high-speed thrill with two rivers and twice the excitement, 360-degree spins and sheer rock faces, while getting up close with nature along the way.
KJet has the largest Jet boat capacity on the Kawarau and Shotover Rivers, with the ability to transfer up to 140 people in their eight boats, adding an “exciting element” into any conference or event.
Speaking from this year’s MEETINGS event KJet sales and marketing manager Ginny Goding said the conference, corporate incentive, and event market “continued to grow year after year”.
“We’re the only company that can offer Jet boat transfers from the airport to town so we’re a must-do with many event organisers 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.
“We offer a one-stop-shop. From planning the itinerary, to liaising with other local operators, such as airlines and hotels, every minute detail is taken care of ensuring event planners can relax safe in the knowledge everything will run smoothly.”
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 is the original Jet boating company and 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.”
“While we pride ourselves on offering the ultimate adrenalin buzz on water, we also inform people about their surroundings, ensuring everyone goes away not only pumped and excited but with a little bit of knowledge.
“A KJet Jet boat ride has something for everyone.”
Whether it’s an airport transfer to the CBD or a private tour, it’s a thrill being on-board as the state-of-the-art Jet boats skim the water’s edge and guests get to breathe in the natural surroundings and embrace Queenstown’s alpine scenery.
From the wide open expanse of Lake Wakatipu to the willow-lined Kawarau River with tight bends and rocky canyons, and the narrow river braids of the Shotover River, KJet guests experience an array of scenic delights en route.
Ms Goding said she continued to field enquiries from a number of markets and, as well as a marked increase in overall bookings year-on-year, the company had experienced specific growth in the Australian and domestic markets.
“Compared to last year the number of Aussie and Kiwi enquiries has jumped and also the size of the groups seem to have grown from the 50-60 mark to a lot of large groups of 200+pax bookings.”
“Things are certainly pretty positive in the C&I market at the moment and we’re looking towards a busy future too.”
Operating from the new-look Queenstown Main Town Pier in the heart of Queenstown Bay, groups are also well-catered for at the company’s Frankton Road main marina which has extensive parking – ideal for multiple buses.
“Anyone looking for an hour or more of action packed fun and laughter should do KJet. It’s an hour of sheer power.”
