Omg what a blast ! You will get soaked but that's the point of it. It's a wild thrill ride. Book ahead and there are lots of coupons in line and In The Niagara coupon books from the visitor centre. We have done it all in Niagara and this is in our top 2. Our 10 year old son had... More

This is sheer adrenaline when the boat hits the many whirlpools along the lower Niagara River. The hotter the day the better the feeling of being drenched in thousands of gallons of cool river water as the jet boat navigates the turbulent waters of the Niagara. The safety record is amazing for the number of boats in operation, but skilled... More

It was one of the best activities to do in Niagara falls. I would definitely go back and do this again.

I thought this would be intense, based on all the videos I watched...and it was!!! But even more importantly, you get a beautiful and scenic boat ride too! I would highly reccomend bringing a change of clothes and a towel with you because you will be SOAKED (unless you take the covered boat...which I'd only do if it was really... More

So first let me tell you I was pretty apprehensive about taking this ride. I've seen the boats from shore before...and finally decided to take the plunge!! I took a trip in an uncovered boat...Best to get wet if you are going to do it at all. So here are some tips: You have to call ahead and book your... More

We ran across this hidden gem while finding things to do outside of the city of Niagara Falls. This was easily the most fun we had during our trip; it was also the wettest I've ever gotten without jumping into a body of water! Definitely bring a change of clothes, because you'll get soaked no matter where you sit (they... More

What a ride! Worth every penny. If you want to get SOAKED- sit on the LEFT SIDE, 2nd or 3rd row from front and hang on tight! Put your camera away when the rapids get rough. Our boat repeatedly went back for bonus runs through the best rapids. Not for the faint of heart. Bring a set of dry clothes.... More

I make sure I do the whirlpool jet tour every year. It is a hidden gem. It is so much fun. It is beautiful and educational as well. You cannot come to Niagara without doing the whirlpool jet tour!

This is not typically the thing I do but my kids wanted to go. I was absolutely amazed how much fun this was. Be warned you will get totally soaked. That means every square inch of your glorious body. This includes your wallet, your cell phone or your purse. Having a state of those cautions you really should do this... More
