Jet Boat by Night

Leanne M
Our trip on the night jet boat was very fun. The food was good and the trip on the boat was informative and entertaining. It was relaxing too. The night sky was beautiful that night.

My kids weren’t too certain at first. By the end, the one who was most afraid to start wanted to ride again. The boat captain did a fantastic job of making the ride enjoyable for all ages. Make sure you wear clothes & shoes appropriate for water. You will get wet!! It can get cold at times. I highly recommend

Vulcan and the Right Stuff

When New Zealander Sir William Hamilton invented the water jet engine in 1953 he needed a way to prove its’ power and superiority. What better way to get notoriety than to take it up-river against America’s powerful Colorado River in the popular Grand Canyon? At the time, no one considered that a motor would even be remotely successful in an upstream test against the notoriously venomous Vulcan Rapid (known today as Lava Falls). “It was a nine day current-bashing marathon that saw the Hamilton Jet negotiate all obstacles, including the mighty Vulcan Rapid. Four boats made it up the Colorado River in 1960, all powered by Hamilton waterjets.” (src)
