Hydro Attack, Queenstown

4.7
#39 of 138 in Outdoors in Queenstown
Head into the belly of the beast at Hydro Attack, a tour operator that takes you skidding over and under the waters in a shark-themed covered vessel. See Lake Wakatipu from above and below in a Seabreacher X watercraft, zipping across the waters at an intense 80 km/h (50 mph). Your driver will dive beneath the surface, take you leaping up into the air, then back down. The trip lasts 20 minutes, giving you a fresh perspective on the lake, the surrounding scenery, and what lies beneath. All visitors over six years of age can enjoy the experience.

  • The Hydro Attack ride was a spontaneous purchase and one that I'll always remember!! So much fun. Fast, scenic, an absolute adrenaline rush. The shark not only skims across the surface but dives down ...  more »
  • The team were great from having to reschedule to making sure we were comfortable and informed, to providing a really tailored experience. A must do  more »
  • Best described as like being on jet-ski that can go underwater. Good fun but not for people who have trouble coping with motion sickness. It does get a bit stuffy so they surface and stop to get fresh...  more »

  • Absolutely wonderful! I asked my pilot, Andy, to go hard, have as much fun as he can, and generally f#%* me up, and he certainly delivered. I had an incredible time shooting around, under, and above the surface of the lake and think you will too!
  • The ride was fun and exciting! The driver was also really friendly. Not sure if worth the money, though. Note: you might feel a bit seasick afterwards so plan accordingly. I had a smoothie just before the ride and suffered.
  • Loved this. A unique experience in a beautiful location. Staff are really friendly and will do everything they can to ensure you have the best time possible, which in my case was lots of jumps. Undoubtably one of the highlights of my time in NZ
  • Of all the things I've done in the Queenstown area, this had to be the best. It's such a unique experience and the drivers are super friendly and enthusiastic. I felt safe the whole time and I will go back next time I'm down south.
  • A truly excellent experience. If you dont do anything else in Queenstown do this. You wont get an experience like it anywhere else. The driver/pilot (not sure what you call them) was excellent, lots of thrills, jumps, speed, in and out of the water. Really enjoyed this.
