Scenery, Wildlife, & Historic Sites!
Join us on a jet boat tour on the magnificent Colorado River.

Our jet boat tours on the Colorado River combine the beautiful scenery, rich history, and wildlife found in and near the Imperial National Wildlife Refuge. The lower Colorado River, a natural flyway and winter destination to thousands of migratory birds, is the year-round home to other wildlife including bighorn sheep, burros, beavers, deer, and lizards. The river banks and surrounding areas form a spectacular living museum. Many historic sites are accessible only by river, including Indian petroglyphs, abandoned pioneer cabins, steamboat landings, and old mines and mining towns. The old mining and pioneer days may have passed, but the history of the Colorado River is brought to life through the narration of our experienced captains in our modern jet boats.


This two to three hour round-trip jet boat tour runs primarily in the hot months, leaving the dock at Fisher's Landing at 10:00 AM. The route is the Captain's choice, based on water and weather conditions. No meal is offered on this trip, but you are welcome to bring your own refreshments. The price is $50 per person. Price includes use fees, & taxes. Reservations are Required.

Student Field Trips
Student Field Trips on Colorado River

Yuma River Tours has always tried to instill in children a love for the beauty and history of the Colorado River. For this reason, a special discounted package is available for children's educational field trips. We stop at an 1800s watchman's cabin, have educational activities at the Mayflower Mine, and provide a nature walk at Picacho State Recreation Area. Students wear life vests and are instructed in water safety. The tour is tailored to suit the particular needs of the group. Students are asked to wear closed-toe comfortable shoes, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Each student should bring their own sack lunch and beverages. The standard educational trip runs three to five hours and costs $30 per person with a 25-passenger minimum. Additional time can be arranged for $5 per hour per person.
