Niagara Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours offers an exhilarating ride that is not for the faint-hearted. Can you handle it?
Beginning in 1992, Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours has been safely operating tours down the Niagara River, or what local adventurers call the ‘Mount Everest’ of whitewater rapids.
It has taken over 12,000 years to form the Niagara Gorge. The Gorge was created by the turbulent waters of the Niagara River, powerful whitewater rapids form when the gorge narrows and causes the water to speed up and froth.
Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours operates a fleet of vessels that travel through the amazing rapids of the Niagara River safely, providing fun for the entire family!
Check-in for Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours is located on the Niagara Parkway at the Floral Clock (contact Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours for more information).
When you arrive, each member of your group must fill out a mandatory pre-trip safety orientation (anyone under the age of 18 must have an adult to sign for them to ride the boat.
The tour is not recommended for anyone with back, neck, heart, respiratory issues or osteoporosis or any other injuries. Pregnant women are not permitted to participate on Whirlpool Jet Boats.
Your guide will give a mandatory safety orientation and explain the mechanics of the jet boat as well as a brief history of the Niagara Region, local attractions and things to do.
Once all forms have been signed you will be provided rain ponchos, water shoes and lifejackets (there are changing rooms and lockers available to store valuables.)
Speed down the lower Niagara River at speeds up to 80 km/h (50 mph). You will be amazed by the 30,000+ lbs of thrust created by the turbodiesel engines of the Whirlpool Jet Boat, as you race through the Devil’s Hole Rapids and the swirling Niagara whirlpool.
You have the choice of whether to do have a ‘Wet Jet’ tour, where you can enjoy the wind and water-spray on your face or the ‘Jet Dome’ tour, which is a covered jet boat that will keep you dry.
The entire excursion will last about 45 minutes if you are departing from Niagara Falls, Ontario and about 60 minutes if you are departing from Niagara-On-The-Lake.
