Shark Boat Thrill Ride

The Seabreacher X is the ultimate blend of a machine and a shark.  It is a unique semi-submersible watercraft. Your shark boat will depart from the Lapsley Bitson Wharf on the Queenstown Lakefront.  This thrill ride is on the beautiful Lake Wakatipu.

Climb in and sit back in the pneumatic-sealed cockpit.  Get ready to feel the g-forces as your driver takes you on a hair raising, adrenaline-pumping thrill ride.

The shark’s engine is supercharged and it can go from 0 to 50 mph in 4 seconds.  Zoom across the water as the shark boat swerves and curves around Lake Wakatipu.   

Look through the F-16 fighter-grade glass and watch the sky disappear as the shark dives 5 feet under the water.  Go 25 mph for 10 to 15 seconds underwater and see the water rush past the glass.

And then here it comes – the vertical leap.  The shark boat will jump 18 feet (its full length) out of the water and straight up in the air!  You’ll shatter the surface of the lake as you come down.  Enjoy!

Experience side rolls, 360-degree spins, twists, exhilarating leaps, and tight g-force turns on this mind-blowing extreme ride.  Can you scream when your heart is in your throat?

Soar over, under and above the water.  It’s like being on a rollercoaster in the water.  The shark boat has been called “jet skis on steroids.”  How could you not want to give this epic water adventure a try?
