The highlights of this part of the tour include entering Devil’s Hole, where the rapids begin, and experiencing the exhilarating 365° Hamilton Turn! The Wet Jet boats are designed with an open top to deliver a panoramic view but that means you will definitely get wet as you go through the rapids. You will be provided with the necessary gear to make your trip as comfortable as possible but there are no dry seats with this option!
