It's a happy 50th birthday for Ngāi Tahu's happy investment.

Queenstown's Shotver Jetboat attraction is the longest running jet boat operation in the world, and Ngāi Tahu has reaped the rewards since buying majority holdings of the company in 2001.

Today Sir Tipene O'Regan and Deputy Prime Minister Bill English attended to mark the 50 year milestone, unveiling a mauri stone alongside other iwi representatives and the Shotover staff.
