Frequently Asked Questions

What should I expect on a Jet Boat Colorado tour?

We offer two kinds of trips, adventure and scenic. Both are based on banks of the Colorado River near De Beque, CO. On all our tours be ready for stunning canyon and mountain scenery and western hospitality.

The adventure trip features cowboy spins, fishtails, power slides and speed runs. You will feel the power and the performance of our custom Jet Boat. Plan on a surge of adrenaline, getting wet and a smile that can't be wiped off.

On our scenic trips, your fun and knowledgeable driver will slow things down to share the history, geology and lore of the Colorado River. A drier ride than the adventure tour, no cowboy spins.

All of our trips are informative, exciting and fun for the entire family.

 

How far in advance do I need to make a reservation?

As soon as you have a firm date in mind. Weekends and holidays through the summer can sell out quickly. It is recommended to book the maximum number of seats you need as soon as you have a date in mind.

 

What is Jet Boat Colorado's cancellation policy?

When should we arrive to check-in?

Please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your departure time to meet your driver, fit your life jacket and finish required paperwork. Please be advised that if you are late your seat will be sold to stand-by customers. You will be charged the full amount if the seat cannot be re-sold and the trip departs without you.

 

What is the season for Jet Boating?

Jet Boat Colorado operates every day from mid-May through mid-September. Charter trips can be scheduled any time of the year by appointment.

 

Are there any age limitations?

Not really; it has more to do with each person’s sense of adventure, physical size and condition.

With kids, the parents know their children best. Children should be at least 40" tall and 50lbs to participate in our tour. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office.

 

What if I have health issues?

Only guests in good health should participate in a Jet Boat Colorado ride. Jet Boat tours can create forces that may not be appropriate for some. For your safety, do not ride if you are pregnant, have any medical/health condition, have had any recent surgeries, or are in poor physical condition.

 

Are life jackets provided?

Life jackets are provided and mandatory for all passengers.

 

How should I dress for the trip?

For most days, shorts, T-shirts and sandals work well, and quick-drying materials are best. Avoid jeans; they are uncomfortable when wet and dry slowly. Please note that Colorado weather changes quickly.

Bring a rain jacket with you. If it is cool or overcast you will want to wear it. Leave it in the car if not. Hats and sunglasses are recommended with a retainer.

Identification, cash and credit card: Keep these handy for souvenir purchases and gratuities.

Please leave wallets, purses, backpacks, and bags secured in your vehicle.

 

May I bring my electronic devices?

Many people bring cameras and cell phones. The scenic tours are usually a dry ride. On the adventure trips, splash and spray will enter the boat. Bring electronic items at your own risk. Jet Boat Colorado cannot be responsible for damage or loss of any electronic equipment. If your vehicle uses an electronic key we can hold it in our office while you are on the water.
