Loved this jet boat experience with it's 360 degree spins, bouncing along the water, getting only a little bit wet, exciting winding around bushes and near to rocks. We felt we were in safe and very experienced hands. Terrific fun!

Good fun if you have the money to do it. If budget is tight, not a must-do. If you have the cash, why not? Takes you closer to the spectacular falls than expected.

Yes. We left things locked in the car, but the staff are very helpful and would likely be willing to store for you.
