This tour was amazing!

My 8 and 12 year olds sons loved the jet boat ride- even though it the snow that was hitting their face felt like bullets and they were freezing cold. The jet boat captain was friendly and informative. He has amazing skills to weave in and out so closely to the river's edge- which thrilled and terrified my kids! We enjoyed how long this event went and the pick up shuttle bus saved us having to worry about how to get there.
