The only way to experience our Canyons, see their beauty and feel their power, is to come on a journey with us, the world’s most exciting jet boat ride. A unique combination of beauty and power, it’s an experience like no other, blending pristine natural landscape with wall to wall canyon action from start to finish!

Bring sunglasses and a jacket if you don't want to get wet.  Warm clothes and a beanie or a woollen hat are recommended in cooler months. Our hand-rails in the boat are heated to keep your hands warm.

Phones or hands-free video devices are welcome on the boat, but at your own risk.  There are multiple photo stops along the way.  Professional photography and onboard footage are taken of each trip.  These will be available for optional purchase directly after your trip.
