Great two hour spin on the river and lake in a stunning location. Rebecca was a brilliant tour guide and jet boat ‘pilot’. She made sure everyone was cool with the spins. It’s a family run and operated business and you’re made to feel welcome.

We were looking for something to do on short notice and the company took care of us. Turned out we were the only two people going out, but they treated us like we owned the boat.
