Everything you need to know about your Whirlpool Jet adventure
We don’t want to give away too much about the trip…but we can assure you that it will be one of the most refreshing and memorable experiences of your visit to Niagara!
On this 45-60 minute tour, you will experience awe-inspiring scenery, the history of the Niagara Gorge, Niagara Falls & the War of 1812 and feel the rush of Class V white water rapids. Our highly trained staff operate our boats with triple turbo diesel water jet systems, a design that is incredibly reliable and safe, but also delivers a fun and exhilarating ride!
The fully guided tour starts on the lower Niagara River into the Niagara Gorge in a Wet Jet or Jet Dome (dry trip) at 55mp/hour. We then take you up to the famous Niagara Whirlpool and through the Class 5 ‘Devil’s Hole’ rapids. Over the past 12,000 years the turbulent currents from Niagara Falls have carved out an 11 km gorge, and this is the water playground for our fleet of eight boats that are ready to take you on an experience of a lifetime!
We ask you to arrive at our location 45 minutes in advance of your departure time to register, sign a participation agreement and attend a mandatory safety orientation. Anyone under the age of 18 must have an adult to sign for them to ride the boat. Guests aged 16 and 17 are able to ride without adult accompaniment but must have a parent or guardian present to sign their participation form. If you want to complete your participation agreements prior to your arrival, you can print them here.
At the dock, all guests will receive splash gear and life jackets. Depending on the temperature more gear may be available and mandatory for guests to wear on the boat.
There are free changing rooms, lockers for valuables, and places to store a change of clothes and towels at all locations. We recommend that all guests riding the Wet Jet Tour bring a full change of clothes!
