Awesome experience, great crew and a very scenic drive and photo stop in the canyon. Definitely recommend as it offers a little extra besides the boat ride.

Thoroughly enjoyed this experience. Glen was communicated very well, our first booking was rescheduled. Pete our driver was excellent, friendly & knowledgeable of the area. His driving skills are to be commended! My daughter Ava and my partner Matt has a lot of fun on the jet boat, thank you. I highly recommend this experience.

My husband and I were wanting to do a jet boat experience but this one was next level. Not only did we get a fun jet boat experience, we also got a guided tour about the gold mining history through the (sometimes very) narrow roads of Skippers Canyon. The views were also incredible. 100% recommend.
