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.
