Great value for money - you get a jet-boat ride

Great value for money - you get a jet-boat ride, a tour, lunch and canoeing all included in a full day experience! Compare this to some other jet-boating activities and this really adds up!! NOT to mention, it was truly spectacular. In total wilderness surrounded by the gorgeous National Park. One of the most incredible experiences I have ever done!
