  Jet Boating on the Dart
by Mez77

There are many different types of Jet Boat tours. There are some nice sedate safaris along the Dart River and these can include a walk.

Then there are the heart stopping adrenaline trips. This is the one I went on. Not a great idea after I had just finshed a Parapente earlier in the day.

I swear the drivers of these boats are crazy and I saw my life flash before my eyes a couple of times. They get so close to cliffs and madly swing the boat around to you miss by mere inches. I'm not sure how many people are injured on these types of tours but it was great fun, even if my legs were a little shaky afterwards.

Directions: Various venues for this activity.
