The Riverboat Tour In Colorado You Never Knew Existed

Taking a riverboat cruise and/or tour is an exciting and unique experience that everyone in the family will enjoy… however, Colorado isn’t home to many old-fashioned riverboats (a la Mississippi River and Huckleberry Finn fame) per se, which is where this one-of-a-kind Only-in-Colorado jet boat cruise comes into play:

Located in De Beque lies “Colorado’s Newest Adventure,” which consists of “one of the finest and most exciting river boat tours on the planet.” Welcome to Jet Boat Colorado; a high-adrenaline and scenic boat tour that consists of fast speeds, comfortable seats, and a first-hand look at the history and geology along the Colorado River. With your choice of either a scenic or adventurous ride aboard the Wild Mustang, you are guaranteed an unforgettable and completely customized experience with some of the safest and most advanced technology in the world. (As perfectly summed up on their website, “you will be riding in our custom 11 passenger New Zealand style Jet Boat through the breathtaking scenery of Colorado‚Äôs mountains and canyon country.”)

Jet Boat Tours is located 25 miles east of Grand Junction and is open daily from mid-May through mid-September with rates beginning at $59 for adults.
