What a blast! Perfect balance of thrillin’ and chillin’. Yes, you will get wet….very wet! No it isn’t scary. To maximize your experience wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from with wind and waves and take the poncho that is offered as it can get pretty chilly out on the water. Our guide was awesome, hilarious and attentive. Great experience!!

If youʻre looking for an epic adventure at a fair price take a tour on the 1 hour Colorado River Speed Boat Tour. We had a blast rocketing up the Colorado River in the speed boat. It was so fun and lived up to the name "Spin and Splash"!! Be prepared to get soaked and have fun! Rory was an amazing guide.
