Alpine Airboats is owned by Robyn & Paul Mullan and operated as part of the well respected Alpine Jet Thrills operation on the Waimakariri River.
An idea that Airboats could transition from the everglades in USA to the shallow shingle braids of New Zealand was sparked when Paul 'discovered' Airboating on a World Jet Boat Expedition to Alaska in 2013. They imported their first fibreglass airboat for personal use on the Ashburton River before designing and building a second larger Kiwi Airboat from aluminium for commercial application.
Since then they have joined forces with Paul & Lynda Vernel at Alpine Jet Thrills in Christchurch and are finalising approval from Maritime NZ to operate the first commercial passenger Airboat - the only Airboat Ride in Aotearoa!
