Great experience on the Shooter River Extreme Jet Boat. This is a smooth running operation. We checked in, were outfitted and on our boat in now time. Thrilling experience shooting up and down the river, close to cliffs and rocks that were jetting out of the water. Pretty amazing to see the agility of these boats and the skill of the drivers... all with a few 360 degree spins every once in a while. I would definitely recommend it.

We also purchased the video. Great mix of stock video with our actual boat ride video intermixed. It was reasonable and something we've watched many times since.

Brilliant experience in a fantastic location. Organisation spot on. One thing to be aware of is to think carefully if you have a back problem as it can be pretty bumpy.

This tour is tons of fun. I was impressed with our captains boating abilities. Don’t want to give spoilers but I did check boat after for scratches?
