Yes, it does get a bit chilly in Taupo in winter, but it's still a great time to come jet boating with Hukafalls Jet! We operate every day of the year (except Christmas Day) and a little cold weather won't keep our drivers out of our fantastic boats. The only thing that stops us is heavy rain (makes it hard for the drivers to see where they're going, and plus at 80km/hr, rain on your face hurts) but the good thing is, it hardly rains here in Taupo!! Even if it does rain on the day you visit, chances are, it won't last all day so you should be able to get you out on a ride. We do recommend that you come prepared in winter, with a woolly hat, sunglasses, and warm jacket. Also, don't forget your small digital camera for that must have snap of the Huka Falls from below. Video cameras are not permitted.
