Testimonials

Dart River's Jet Boating is a great tour and I highly recommend it to anyone who is visiting Glenorchy. Our driver Ben was friendly, knowledgeable and made you feel comfortable that he was behind the wheel - as I suspect all their drivers do.
Overall, it's a great value trip and the best jet boating I've done anywhere. The jet boating itself was great fun and the scenery is truly spectacular. My wife and I found ourselves both keen to go back and do it again.
For us, it's a must do.
