The minimum age is 2 years old, children must be accompanied by a caregiver. Pregnant women are advised not to partake in jet boating. People with medical concerns should mention these at the time of booking. The gorge is a confined area and often large pressure waves appear. Passengers are thoroughly briefed on safety requirements prior to all departures. Boarding is via a 30 foot portable jetty complete with handrails.

"“Don't miss this adventure!”"

Our first jet boat experience - truly amazing and thrilling experience! We had a wonderful time on a beautiful day. Our driver was fun and pointed out many interesting points during the brief stops along the way! The jet boat experience was part of an excursion booked through our cruise and exceeded our expectations!
