The backcountry jet tour was fantastic! It was a personal tour for our family of four where we didn’t see a road, car or another person! We were in the backcountry in no time and it was spectacular!

We did a jet boat trip with Andy to Spencer Glacier the following day to see the ice field and glacier up close. Very professional, fun, and memorable. Thanks, Andy! Highly recommend!
