Jet Boating the Rakaia Gorge

With a special thanks to my family for a great birthday present, I was given the chance to go jet-boating up the Rakaia Gorge recently with my brother.  However there is no photo that can adequately show the thrilling adventure of speeding through the beautiful scenery … although I’m very glad that we stopped several times to soak it in (and take some photos).

Although winter has just started, it was a gorgeous day for jet-boating.  The wind was very strong, enough to where I took my hat off so that it wouldn’t get blown off!  I also put my good camera in my coat pocket once I discovered that the memory card hadn’t been returned to the camera after downloading the last batch of photos.  These pictures were taken from a mobile device, so I’m thankful that new devices have such decent camera’s.

Jet boating these rivers is a blast, and the scenery isn't too bad either.

Dad’s Recommendation:
Take a river jet boat trip if you ever have the chance. Especially when visiting the South Island of New Zealand.  However, check your camera for a memory card first!
