The lady running our B&B highly recommended this boat ride, and she was so right! A great staff takes you on a fast boat down the beautiful gorge, next to and down the huge whitewater rapids. The info is interesting, but the "wild" ride is the reason to go. We went in July and it was warm, so we didn't... More

I've been down hiking at the gorge many times over the years and have always been impressed by the rapids. However, the Whirlpool Jetboats is definitely the best way to experience them. Do read through the form you'll need to fill out and make sure you are able bodied enough for the ride.

We bought out tickets online with the Niagara Adventure Package included. We found it to be a great value. It was a windy, cloudy, cold day but that can't be helped. I had read that sweaters would be available but no one mentioned it, however, I saw them on racks next to the ponchos and asked for one. I strongly... More

Seriously. The jet boat was the best part of our Niagara Falls trip. Despite the dreary, cold weather we had a BLAST. The staff was awesome and informative and the ride was exciting and unexpected. I've done both types of boats and definitely the "uncovered" is the most fun! My biggest recommendation to anyone visiting the Niagara area is to... More

This turned out to be the highlight of a trip to NOTL and Toronto, we were recommended this experience continually by taxi drivers and hotel staff. It was worth every recommendation and more. this is a blast up the Niagara river which is very scenic followed by several runs back through the sections of rapids. These are amazing and thanks...

A group of 8 friends (in our 50's) in NOTL for a wine tour weekend, decided we also needed to give the whirlpool jet boat a try. We are so glad we did! This was a blast, and we hooted and hollered and had a fabulous time! The ride was fast and exhilarating, and we got fully soaked as expected,... More

This ride was so much fun and the highlight of our Niagara-on the-Lake and Falls mini-vacay. Don't cheap out and do purchase the USB stick. My family is still laughing at me. A real rush and worth every penny. Special thanks to Shawn our jet-boat driver for having such impressive boating skill and getting us back alive, lol.

This was fun and exciting. You will get soaked if you sit in the front, a wall of water will hit you! You also get the best view from the front. There are lockers for a change of clothes and you will need them.

Really exciting ride, the trip was very organised, they prepared every gear you will need for you, the ride itself was super fun, but be prepared to get splashed by the waves! We rode on the Niagara rapids which is about a class five to six rapids(which is the highest level), but don't worry, it's safe. Our leader told us... More

Do it now when the water is warm because no matter if you wear a raincoat and boots,when the water splashes due to some crazy moves by the captain the boat almost fills with water and it goes in through the hoodies. It's fun
