THE JET BOATS
The Jet boats are 20 ft V-8 powered with lots of weight and carrying capacity. They have full covers to keep everyone dry during inclement weather. They have heaters to keep you warm during those cool days or early mornings. There is ample dry storage for cameras and other valuables. The boats are large enough to carry 5-6 guests but still small enough to navigate though relatively shallow water. The boats are commercially registered and have full liability insurance.
Safety is of the utmost importance and we take it very seriously. All jet boats are commercially registered with marine watercraft liability insurance. All the boats meet or exceed Transport Canada required safety equipment. All guests are required to wear the provided Canadian Coast Approved PFD’s while travelling on the boat. The jet boat drivers are fully trained in “Jet Boat Safety Operations” and have training in SVOP – Small vessel operator proficiency and MED A3 – Marine Emergency Duties. Drivers are trained in first aid and the Jet Boats have accompanying First Aid Kits. Boats are also equipped with Radios and Satellite Phones.
