Forgotten World Jet began with the amalgamation of two established tourism businesses in Taumarunui. Taumarunui Jet Tours had for many years offered exhilarating jet boat rides on the Whanganui River and Forgotten World Adventures had offered tours in Railcarts along the decommissioned SOL Railway line. The Rail and River Run tour offered both experiences in one day. Further tours were added and in 2016 Forgotten World Jet Boat Ltd was thrilled to commission their first jet boat.
We called her Ongaruhe in the tradition of Hatrick's historic passenger fleet (named after tributaries of the Whanganui River) and had her blessed by local Iwi, for our journeys along its waters.
Ongaruhe has ‘over the bow through windscreen’ boarding, a central aisle which means no clambering over seats, and generous tiered seating enabling all passengers to enjoy the views. She carries up to 15 passengers in comfort, and an intercom lets you easily hear the stories and history of the river from your driver.
