How To Enjoy Jetboating in New Zealand

Jetboating.  Just another one of those crazy Kiwi ideas.  And like all of the best, it works, and it's a pile of fun.

I'm a big fan of "learning by doing," so I hopped aboard a pair of jetboats during my "Travel With a Local" trip in New Zealand with my partners in crime Dave and Lauren.  Remember, I did it for you.
