The Dart River adventure begins in Queenstown, moves along Lake Wakatipu to Glenorchy before heading into the pristine Dart River Valley and the World Heritage Area of Mount Aspiring National Park.
Dark River Jet safaris offer three safaris, the Wilderness Safari, Jet Boat Safari, Funyak Safari. This report relates to the Jet Boat Safari. There is a 45 minute bus ride to Glenorchy, and you must be able to transfer out of a wheelchair. The office at Glenorchy has an accessible toilet. There is a short minibus ride from the office to the boat ramp. Again you must be able to transfer out of your chair. The best seating position is near the front as the aisle width on the boat is very narrow which makes it difficult if you need to be carried. The jet boat stops for about half an hour and you have the option of getting off the boat. This is achievable with the assistance of others, however, be aware that the ground can be very soft and possibly unsuitable for wheelchairs in places if there has been recent rain.
Rated by Disability Information Service Otage and DRC Queenstown as “accessible with assistance”.
