Private Hydro Attack Experience in Queenstown

Up to 4 spaces available per time-slot.

It's time to scream in the shark machine. Operating from our berth in central Queenstown we will take you on an adrenaline-packed ride out on stunning Lake Wakatipu. Like a stunt plane on the water - sit back in the cockpit and get ready to feel the g-forces as our expert pilot gives you an experience you'll never forget. Looking through the F-16 fighter grade glass of the semi-submersible shark you'll see the sky disappear as your pilot descends into a long dive under the water then launches the entire length of the shark up into the air. You may experience side-rolls, tight turns and reach top speeds of 80 kph on water and 40 kph while diving underwater. 

Each shark takes one passenger so trips are one-on-one with our pilot. A ride in the shark is sure to get your heart pumping.

The ultimate blend of shark and machine! Hydro Attack is the world's first commercial operator of the amazing Seabreacher X watercraft.

    It’s time to scream in the shark machine.
    You’re inside what feels like a cross between a fighter jet and a torpedo.
    It’s skimming across the top of the lake at 80kph then it dives under the water, surrounding you in serene liquid blue.
    Next, your pilot points the shark at the sky and it blasts back out again, straight up into the air before shattering the lake into a million crystal shards on a screaming re-entry.
    Whatever else you’ve done in the name of extreme excitement, nothing has prepared you for a ride in one of Hydro Attack’s sharks.

    Hydro Attack is the world’s first commercial operator of these unique semi-submersible machines so while you’re in Queenstown don’t miss your chance to have a go.

    Trips are 15 minutes on the water. Please allow 25 minutes for the whole experience including safety briefing and loading and unloading.
