Yes, we can collect you if you are staying within the Te Anau township.  Just let us know where you are staying and we can arrange a pick up.

10.    Are the trips weather dependant?

Fiordland is still beautiful in the rain.  As the weather can be changeable we usually make a call on the day, however, your comfort is our priority and bear in mind that the skipper doesn’t really like getting wet either!

11.    Will I get wet?

We usually tell our guests “Not unless it rains!”

We provide life jackets for every passenger and warm beanie hats if you would like to use them.

Your safety is extremely important to us. Everyone is required to wear a life jacket throughout the trip and our jetboats are inspected and certified annually to Maritime New Zealand safety standards.

We can take up to 11 people in the boat at any one time.  For group bookings we have two jet boats so can accommodate up to 22 people per trip.  Call Luxmore Jet on 0800 25 38 26 to discuss your requirements.
