A Better Mix of Business & Pleasure

Add in the expected better weather prospects for boating, a location under an hour from Christchurch Airport, a red hot deal to hire motorhomes we've put in place and we expect this to be more of a weekend festival of jet boating to remember - a celebration of jet boating - not just the same old conference.

Our theme this year The Development Zone will be a better mix of business and pleasure is bound to be more attractive to the membership, so we're looking forward to more people joining us this year.

And for those worried there isn't enough serious meeting time allocated below - we're taking advantage of better technology and using Zoom to conduct many of the "less interesting" aspects of conference via a Zoom meeting in the week leading up to Conference.

We want Conference in 2020 to be an event. An event for everyone to remember! This weekend of jet boating business and pleasure will appropriately be JBNZ's Development Zone.


Join thousands of others who share a common interest in jet boating. See photos and reports of river boating around the world, share your experiences, get tips and advice from industry experts.


There are a mountain of benefits in being a member of JBNZ. Its an organisation set up by jet boaters and run by jet boaters for the benefit of its members and others who gain the flow on benefit of the work we do in keeping New Zealand rivers open for use above 5 knots.


The Jet Boating New Zealand Heritage Trust was formed to help coordinate and support the efforts of all those interested in preserving the history of jet boating for future generations.

The Benefits of Joining Jet Boating New Zealand

We work hard to promote safety and enjoyment for all jet boaters and continue to uplift speed restrictions on rivers while lobbying to retain access for our members.
