Awesome ride

I have been on this ride about 100 times and I never get tired of it. This was the first time with my children. They had a blast.

Wow. I am a super non-adventure person, so I was scared to death to do this boat ride! The staff, including Nate and H Y all encouraged me along, and were super helpful and friendly. The trip up the river was beautiful, and the guide gave us historical info along the way. Then the fun began - the captain did... More

We decided on this jet boat thrill ride and we were glad we did. What an incredible way to see the river and enjoy some laughs and fun with a whole bunch of other thrill seekers. When we booked in they said to dress appropriately because you will be getting wet. A wet we got, the folks a Whirlpool jet... More

We went with a family mixture of quite young to middle aged and all thoroughly enjoyed it...if you are going anywhere near Niagara, you have to experience this, it is awesome fun! We went on a warm summer's day and were told we'd get wet, expected the water to be freezing but it was actually quite warm, a great way... More

We have been on the Jet Boat tours twice. One time it was the closed dome boat and the other time the open one. Loved both but preferred the open boat tour. It's lots (!!!!) of fun and prepare to get completely soaked. Teams are well organized and energetic. I can't wait to go again.

The Whirlpool Jet Boat Tour was a total blast and one of the highlights of our trip!. After registering and signing the liability waiver, they give everyone an instructional orientation prior to walking to the docks. Because the boat floor fills with water during the ride, you should wear shoes that have a back on them and won't wash off... More

This was amazing. My boyfriend and I had the time of our lives. We were super lucky with a warm day in October. The view was amazing. The ride was even better. We sat at the front row and got soaked and it was great. Can't speak for the back of the boat. But the front with a front row... More

I was a little apprehensive about the possible bumpy ride. But had so much fun that I didn't even notice. It was a blast! Totally worth every minute! Jean Marc and the captain made the whole experience wonderful! Highly recommend this adventure ride!
