"“Don't miss this adventure!”"

Our first jet boat experience - truly amazing and thrilling experience! We had a wonderful time on a beautiful day. Our driver was fun and pointed out many interesting points during the brief stops along the way! The jet boat experience was part of an excursion booked through our cruise and exceeded our expectations!

I absolutely loved the trip. Beautiful weather, clear blue water, the gorge is just beautiful to look at ... You are sitting in a really fast boat .. What could be better?
