Take a thrilling ride on the whitewater rapids of the Niagara River with the Whirlpool Jet Boats. You will travel through Class 5 rapids as you make your way to the Niagara Whirlpool. And, get soaking wet in the process!
There are two departure locations in Ontario for the ride, Niagara-on-the-Lake and Niagara Falls. It is a round trip excursion and you will travel through the rapids in the Niagara River Gorge on the Jet Boats.
You can choose from 2 types of tours:
1. The Wet Jet Tour
For those who wish to get soaked in the waters from the rapids
2. The Jet Dome Tour
With enclosed doors that keep you completely dry.
Wet Jet Boats can hold between 48 to 54 passengers while the Jet Dome has a passenger capacity of 40. The boat equipment and the rides are completely safe.
It is advisable to reach the boarding point 45 minutes before departure. After you sign a participation agreement, you will attend a safety orientation session.
Provided on the tour are:
- Life jackets
- Water Shoes, etc.
You can also bring your own shoes, or sandals with back straps. Since you will get completely drenched on the Wet Jet Tour, it would be best to carry a change of clothes. You are going to need it!
At the dock, you can place all your valuables in lockers. Waterproof cameras can be carried on the boats along with sunglasses, hats, etc.
Passengers should be in good health without any back, neck, heart & respiratory problems, or injuries. Pregnant women are not allowed to take part. While people of most ages can enjoy the tour, passengers on the Wet Jet Tour must be 44″ (112cm) tall. Requirement for the Jet Dome is a height of 40″ (102cm).
Now, get ready for an exciting 45 minute to 1 hour ride! Once you board the boat and make your way along the river, you will learn about the history and geology of the Niagara River and gorge.
Of course, the highlights are cruising over the Devil’s Hole white water rapids, and the boat taking 360 degree turns on the river. Feel the thrill as the waves of water rise up and descend all over you making you completely wet! While specific seats cannot be reserved on the boat, those in the front seat are going to get super soaked. It is a lot of fun!
So, while in Niagara, do not miss out on the ride of a lifetime with the Whirlpool Jet Boat tours!
