This Boat Tour in Niagara Falls Is Not the Peaceful Experience You Had in Mind

Niagara Falls
by Matador Creators Dec 12, 2022

There are many ways to enjoy Niagara Falls. You can take a tranquil cruise during which you’ll be gently dampened by the falls’ mist. You can stay on land and take a walk behind Horseshoe Falls, or in a 100-year-old tunnel, to get unbelievably close-up views of the rushing waters. You can even zipline above the Niagara River. But for the hard-core travelers who want to get an adrenaline rush with their sightseeing, nothing compares to jet boat tours of Niagara Falls.

Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours offer two types of jet boat tours of Niagara falls: the “Wet Jet” and the “Jet Dome” experiences. The scene in the video above is from a “Wet Jet” tour. (The “Jet Dome” boats are covered and passengers don’t get wet.)

A “Wet Jet” tour is an exhilarating and very wet 45-minute ride down river from the falls. You’ll take in the beauty of the thundering Niagara River and travel into the Niagara Gorge through rapids and the Niagara Whirlpool at 50 miles per hour. Note that jet boat tours do not take you to the famous falls, but you’ll feel the mighty power of their rushing waters while on board.

Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours recommends that you take nothing of value with you because your belongings are likely to get totally soaked or go overboard. You’ll also need a total change of clothes and footwear after the ride.

Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours are located on both the Canadian and American sides of the Niagara Falls, in Queenstown, Ontario and in Lewiston, New York. The tours are seasonal and don’t operate in the winter, but bookings are open throughout the year so you can plan your trip well ahead. The ride costs adults $64.95 plus fuel surcharge. Reservations are highly recommended.
