We have been on the Jet Boat tours twice. One time it was the closed dome boat and the other time the open one. Loved both but preferred the open boat tour. It's lots (!!!!) of fun and prepare to get completely soaked. Teams are well organized and energetic. I can't wait to go again.

The Whirlpool Jet Boat Tour was a total blast and one of the highlights of our trip!. After registering and signing the liability waiver, they give everyone an instructional orientation prior to walking to the docks. Because the boat floor fills with water during the ride, you should wear shoes that have a back on them and won't wash off... More

This was amazing. My boyfriend and I had the time of our lives. We were super lucky with a warm day in October. The view was amazing. The ride was even better. We sat at the front row and got soaked and it was great. Can't speak for the back of the boat. But the front with a front row... More

I was a little apprehensive about the possible bumpy ride. But had so much fun that I didn't even notice. It was a blast! Totally worth every minute! Jean Marc and the captain made the whole experience wonderful! Highly recommend this adventure ride!

It is safe and well organised, great pilot and guide. yes you do get soaked but worth it. the beautiful views to see when not being drenched, great fun and atmosphere, recommend... More

Absolutely fantastic. I wasn't sure because of the cost at first but worth every penny. Jean-Mark was informative as well as building up the excitement before we hit the rapids. If this had just been an ordinary boat trip, I would be recommending it because the scenery was out of this world. It was just a boat trip though, it... More
