We did the Squeeze as a family, with kids aged 8 and 10. It was amazing! The trip down river in the jetboat is interesting, as guides Tony and Jeremy explained about Maori culture as well as the history of the area. Out of the boat into shallow water for the squeeze. Due to the recent cyclone, the water was... More

What fun I had on this trip! Zooming down the Waikato River, adrenalin pumping as we wizz close-bye tree/bank edges and doing spins! Jumping out to squeeze through a narrow but passable gap in the rocks to a waterfall with some warm water to enjoy. What a unique tour and thrilling adventure! Great fun to be had, maori cultural legends... More

Everything is all organised. Rash tops, croc shoes, raincoat provided. Enjoyed the commentary of life on the river. Got to the squeeze and it was well worth it and will go again with other friends who haven't been. What made our trip even better was that there was only 5 of us and the driver so that meant we had... More

It was our first trip to the Squeeze and it was a very different natural experience! Due to the recent cyclone, the water was not as warm as it is usually but it was well worth the trip! We swim through some deeper water and walked through some shallower parts. It finally got to the waterfall and it was pretty... More

Had an amazing time with New Zealand Riverjet. Shannon and Tony were very hospitable and friendly hosts. Tony was really experienced and informative, giving us an interesting and humorous commentary along the river and lots of fun spins on the way back. Totally recommend this experience - so glad I did it. Lynette - Rotorua Isite

I am so glad we did the Squeeze tour! Adam talked us into it and it was a unique life experience I'll always remember. You basically get a professional and informative boat ride and then explore a narrow, jungly, mossy canyon. Adam was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide that made us all feel special, like we were long lost friends.... More

What an adventure. We had the most amazing tour guide Tony! He not only can drive a boat but the history that he brings to the tour made it even more memorable. The views are stunning every direction you turn there is something to see and he has a story to tell. A must go!!!
