Must do in NZ.

Cookee, when on the South Island check out Doc here- http://www.adventuretours.co.nz/hosts/index.html
He does a mental jetboat trip on the Buller river. Queenstown has gotton a bit overdone and the boats are now like buses. Doc has a 15ft bare ally thing with a tuned 7.4ltr V8 spinning a Hamiliton 2 stage jet. Frightened the s*** out of me.

Looking at the site, it looks as if Doc now has a 'bus'. Book a trip in the 'ally animal' which seats 5 inc. him, not the bus. The Fox Glacier heli trip is also pretty stunning taking in Mt. Cook etc.

Thanks Mollers - it seems it's a bit out of our way to see "Doc", where does the Mount Cook heli trip go from?

Mt Cook. or Fox Glacier, It's kinda halfway down the South Island in the Southern Alps.
