We offer three different excursions: the Wilderness Jet Boat Tour, the Three Rivers Tour and the Devil’s Canyon Tour.Put Mahay's Jet Boat Adventures at the forefront of your travel plans using our Talkeetna driving holiday planning website.
All of our trips do a ¼ mile nature walk where you will visit a Dena’ina Indian encampment and a trapper’s cabin. Our on board naturalist will show you how these two different settlers of the area lived, along with furs and traps. While on the water, the boat will stop along the way at various points to talk about the mountain, differences in the river and you will go by an active bald eagles nest. If the weather is good, you will have beautiful mountain views throughout the journey.
All the trips begin on the Talkeetna and head ten miles up the Susitna to our Adventure Site and the nature walk portion. The Three Rivers trip does this basic 2 hour Wilderness Jet Boat portion but takes you on the third river in the area the Chulitna. The Chulitna is a beautiful braided river going through the Chulitna River Gorge. It’s a canyon with beautiful high rock walls and a picture perfect mountain view as you come out the other side.
Our premier trip is the Devil’s Canyon Adventure. This trip takes you 130 miles round trip through Denali National Park and into Devil’s Canyon which is class 5 whitewater! We take the boat just a little ways into the canyon and hold it there for you feel the power of the waves. You will be able to see into class 6 and experiencing the power of one of the most dangerous canyons in North America from the safety and comfort of our 56 seat diesel Jet Boat.

A fun tour on a beautiful river. We loved the short little hike to the recreated indian villages and the delightful attitude of the guide as well as our pilot on the boat. Highly recommend this one. more »
This tour was so much fun, one of our favorite things so far. The captain was funny and knowledgeable. The scenery was beautiful. They served a very nice lunch, very tasty. We did the morning trip to Devils Canyon. Would recommend this to everyone!!!
We took the 3 river jet boat tour. We saw lots of diverse areas of the river. The bald eagles must have been feeding on the salmon as we estimated that we saw over 50 bald eagles on our tour. We also saw Salmon swimming upstream on the creek. The fishing and trapping camp part of the tour was interesting. I would definitely recommend this tour!
