We were lucky enough to be the last boat of the season!
Our guide was brilliant, super knowledgeable and made the trip much more enjoyable.
The river was quite low, so the rapids weren't as challenging as we expected so we will definitely be back when the river is higher and flowing faster! Apparently spring time is best, once the snow is melting - more water equals better rapids!
Not gonna lie, the water is freezing but you're protected from the cold with all the layers of wetsuits. And you can drink the water straight out of the river!
Do the cliff jumping if you get a chance.
Lots of laughs with a great bunch of people.

We have done jet boat rides a number of times, and this was up there for thrills, but with better value for money than any we have tried previously. The driver was excellent too. Very personable, and a great driver. Would definitely recommend, and would do it again.

Wow we did this last week and was probably one of the best things we have done, chris was the skipper and made sure we all had a fantastic time Go Orange was fantastic very helpful and they was very competitive on prices. If you are thinking of a jet boat trip I would highly recommend these guys to you, go for it you will really love it (trust me).
