Our commitment to your safety at Hanmer Springs Attractions


Our Hanmer Springs Attractions drivers, guides and instructors lead our guests through some pretty crazy stuff! Ever wonder just what training they go through, or how our equipment is kept safe for our clients? The health and safety of our customers is at the heart of what we do.

Our Jet Boat drivers have commercial jet boat licences issued by Maritime New Zealand. Our Jet Boats themselves undergo thorough maintenance checks with daily checks by the drivers. Each year we review our Jet Boat fleet and plan the refit and critical check & replacement programme. Our fleet is audited by Maritime New Zealand along with an external auditor, and we are the only Jet Boat operator in the Hurunui area to be awarded a silver Qualmark award or higher.

Our Rafting and Canoe guides have New Zealand river guide awards (Grade 2 and above) issued by the New Zealand Rafting Association: for both qualifications our trainees are put through an inhouse training programme before being assessed by an independent professional from the NZRA. There is a full safety briefing explaining the trip to guests before we leave.

We have been in the business for over 28 years and our Bungy jump masters are trained to the New Zealand Bungy Code of Practice. Our safety procedures include daily checks of our equipment, internal and external audits and working to the Bungy Code of Practice. Your safety is at the core of who we are and what we do.

Our Clay Bird Shooting instructors all have valid New Zealand firearms licences, and our Quad Bike and Paintball instructors undergo inhouse training pathways before being accredited. Our Quad Bikes and Buggies are checked over daily by our drivers and our workshop undertakes a full strip down and critical parts replacement programme. The vehicles have a Certificate of Fitness assessment every six months.

Hanmer Springs Attractions undergoes annual audits by WorkSafe New Zealand’s AdventureMark programme, Tourism New Zealand’s Qualmark programme and Maritime New Zealand for our MNZ Certificate of Compliance.

You can rest assured on your next adventure at Hanmer Springs Attractions knowing our staff have been put through their paces with rigorous training and our equipment has been thoroughly inspected. Come and join our team on an awesome outdoor adventure!
