  • Hold on to your hats (better yet, leave the at home)! This was a great ride a minute after entering their boats. Fast, fun and scenic. Members of our group said the was the most fun they've had in years. Bring a warm and windproof set of clothing and take advantage of their waterproof jackets, especially if your seated on the sides of the boat. You'll get a bit wet but because of the speed dry off in seconds. Have fun!
  • Incredible experience! Stunning views in every direction and the guides are incredible. Super knowledgeable, helpful and really fun! If you're looking for a fun activity for the whole family, this is it. Tramping, jet boat, rowing and story telling all in one!
