Water Safety in 2007: In 2007 we hosted "Water Safety In The Dells" at the River Walk Pub in Wisconsin Dells. Some of the fun-filled afternoon activities included: First Aid & CPR demonstrations provided by the American Red Cross and local Dells/Delton EMS, lifeguard rescue demonstrations provided by Great Wolf Lodge, rules of the waterway by the DNR, life jacket race, little guppie contest, kid's sand digging, coloring contest, storytelling, sand art, a raffle, water trivia & face painting! Local organizations and businesses were present distributing materials to the water-loving community.
Water Safety in 2008: In 2008 we partnered with Great Wolf Lodge and sponsored a 10-day Captain's class. the class was taught by one of our very own Jet Boat Captain's, Captain Rudy who is an instructor for the Nautical Acagemic's Coast Guard approved traveling school. The class was open to anyone interested in obtaining their Captain's license. We are proud to say that two of our pilot's passed the course with flying colors and are now licensed Captain's. Great work guys!

Top 10 Jet Boat Water Safety Tips!
We do believe our tour is safe for all ages. However, it is still a wild ride where we do go fast with power stops and 360 degree spins. Therefore, we do advise certain safety tips that can ensure a safer and more enjoyable ride.
Tip #1: When your pilot says, "hold on!" Please take this as a warning that you are about to either do a power stop or a sharp turn. Do not hold onto the seat in front of you, (a sure-fire way for a good nose-bleed) but, instead wrap your arms around the back of the seat you are sitting in, and push your feet up against the bottom of the seat in front of you where the seat meets the floor. This will push your tush into your seat and stabilize you in the best possible way.
Tip #2: If you have small children... repeat the above tip, but hold onto them with one arm while holding onto the seat behind you with the other. If they fit on your lap, then put them on your lap. Infants may be more comfortable in a car seat. It is advised that small children sit between parents or on the lap and not on the outside edge.
Tip #3: Life jackets are located under the seat in front of you and available to those who want them. However, passengers are not required to wear them. We do have child life jackets on board, but you may bring your own if you think your child would be more comfortable. Again, they are not required to wear them.
Tip #4: If you will be bringing any purses, wallets, phones or other belongings, please stow them under the seat in front of you before you take off on your tour. That way you can sit back and enjoy your tour as your items stay, for the most part dry. Please note, that you will not need these items on your tour so if you want to leave them in the car you may. We do have Captain's tip jars in the ticket booth just in case you don't want your money to get wet.
Tip #5: If you are bringing a camera, please bring a plastic bag or request one at the ticket booth. We do advise bringing a camera because only a jet boat can give you those great close-up shots. Since we can travel in 6 inches of water you will be able to see things that wouldn't normally be accessible to you. We aren't responsible for camera equipment so just make sure to use that plastic bag.
Tip #6: We do not advise this tour to anyone with a bad back, neck or any health condition where bumpiness or jolting would have a negative affect. For the most part it can be a fairly smooth ride. However, we can't control mother nature or the great outdoors. Wind and other boat traffic can make the ride a bumpy one at times.
Tip #7: Weather can be unpredictable in Wisconsin. For that reason we do keep a close watch on the weather radar. We will tour in the rain, because you will most likely be getting wet anyway. However, we will cancel the tour if there is any reported lightning or bad weather on the way. Cancellations are left up to the owner and made for the safety of our passengers, pilots and boats. We are not experienced meteorologists, so we do ask for patience as we try to make important weather decisions.
Tip #8: Please keep your arms, legs and body parts in the boat at all times.
Tip #9: Please remain seated until your pilot tells you it is safe to exit your seat at the end of your tour.
Tip #10: Please listen to your knowledgeable pilot. They all go through an extensive training program and know how to keep you as safe as possible. This ride has been enjoyed by thousands. Over 50% of our passengers are return guests. Part of our success is because we take great care in the comfort and safety of our passengers. We invite you to come and enjoy what so many others keep coming back for!
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call 608-254-8246.

"I believe there is enough room for everyone to enjoy the river. However, all boaters should take the water as a serious endeavor and gain as much knowledge as possible to become as safe as possible. I know we can all work together to make our rivers & lakes safer!"
