Scenery, excitement, a super guide

From the first hello and the walk through the collection of antiques, thru a great ride, to a fascinating chat about jet boat racing, the whole experience was 5 stars The ride was exhilarating, the scenery breathtaking, and the snippets of history and geology fascinating.

Amazing Experience!

We had a Sunday midday trip and we were the only ones on the boat! This company is great they will take a trip no matter how many customers are on the trip. We had Mark as our driver and he was awesome. Very knowledgeable, took photos for us and he was great to chat to. I would highly recommend this experience, it exceeded expectations! Thanks guys!
