Overall, the price isn't bad. But the experience itself was amazing. We will definitely be back. The captain, Rick, was hilarious and is very good at his job. The views are breathtaking of the New River Gorge bridge. I would highly recommend it. Heck, we...More

Hawks Nest State Park offers a ticket to ride their tram and ride the jet boat on the New River as a combo ticket. It is a nice ride on the river but not overly informative etc. The captain is friendly, but the noise of...More

I would definitely recommend the Gondola ride down, even if you don't do the jet boat the gondola ride is interesting. The road up to the State Park in beautiful, loved the drive. There is no fee to get into the State Park or for...More

With small children it's hard to get on the river, but the jet boat gave us the access we were looking for. Unparalleled views of the bridge. It was about 1/2 hr; for $30 I wish it had been a bit longer and we had...More

The ride down the mountain I think was as good if not better than the actual boat ride. I don't think it was quite worth the $25 per person charge. It was cool seeing the bridge from the river but we were gone less than...More

This provided the best pictures we got of the new river bridge. Good value as it includes ride on tram to reach docking area. Cushioned seats were welcomed as better than other jet boat rides we have taken. Rick made sure that both sides of...More

Make sure to call ahead to check that days' scheduled departures. There was a small group of kids with their parents that got there just before 11am (when the ticket booth opened) and had apparently pre-arranged their tickets and jet-boat tour. Since they occupied the...More
