Until recently, New Zealand's spectacular Clutha River was threatened by four hydro dams proposed by Contact Energy, at Tuapeka Mouth, Beaumont, Queensberry and Luggate. This website remains active as a reminder that our New Zealand rivers are still not safe from commercial exploitation.

Clutha River JetClutha River Jet

Jet boat the mighty Clutha River in a New Zealand designed and built boat, skimming over rocks and sandbars, powering through rapids and giant pressure waves on New Zealand's largest river. Along the way, the driver will stop for that once in a lifetime 'snap shot' or perhaps spot some of the huge trout lurking in the deep pools.

Client comments:
"Hi Greg, Many thanks for the phenomenal day on the Clutha on Thursday. You showed me the value of fishing with a professional guide and I consequently learned a good deal from our day of fishing. Attached you will find a photo of the first fish of the day. Take care and stay in touch. Randy Turney, Oregon , USA."

"Dear Greg, Just a message to say thank you for the wonderful day's drift-fishing on the Clutha.It was a great day's raft fishing experience the likes of which I have never done before. Many thanks for your safe rafting, and expert guidance and trout spotting. Four browns and four rainbows to 4.5lbs and four dropped was a great day out. I particularly enjoyed the brown that took the Kiwi-style green caddis after refusing the dries, and the rainbow in the fast run at lunchtime. Cheers. Tight lines! Dave Collins, UK."
