Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours on Niagara River
If you're restless for adventure, Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours have the solution with one of their dynamic jet boat tours through the pounding waters of Niagara. Get ready to get soaked from the fast and powerful Niagara River on the Wet Jet Tour. Stay dry, but keep the excitement on the Jet Dome Tour, when you ride in an enclosed boat through the same waters. Whirlpool's boat tours are always packed with fun and filled with adventure.
The Wet Jet Tour is an action-packed adventure through the Niagara River. Enter a Whirlpool Jet Boat for forty-five minutes to an hour of wet and wild fun. Coast Guard Certified captains and fully trained River Guides provide narration on the sights, history, and significances of Niagara River and the mechanics on the boat as you ride through Devil's Hole Rapids, into Niagara Gorge, and through the famous Niagara Whirlpool. The ride departs from three different locations during specific times of the year. From June to August, choose an Aero Car, an antique cable car that flies through the air until you reach your Whirlpool boat. Or, you can choose to depart from either New York or Niagara On the Lake when you visit between May and October. Tours usually last up to an hour, but the average time spent on-site and in the water together takes up to two hours. It is recommended that you arrive at least forty-five minutes before your departure time.
River gear is provided for you, because, on this tour, you will get wet. There is no cover over the boat, so be prepared for the splashing water to soak you. Whirlpool provides you with a life jacket, splash suit, poncho, and the neccessary equipment o keep you safe and warm. The tour takes you through Devil's Hole Rapids, where you will be greeted with turbulence in the water that will rock you in your seat. Then head into Niagara Gorge, beginning at the base of Niagara Falls. The river's current has one of the strongest forces in the world flowing inside the gorge. Cling to your seat as you enter the natural Niagara Whirlpool, located in the gorge, where drastic upheaval in the water swirls you around. The Wet Jet Tour is always a favorite with visitors to the Niagara Falls area, as it provides with a thrilling, personal adventure through the river.
Take the same tour, keep the adventure, and leave Niagara with incredible memories, but stay dry on the Jet Dome Tour. Board a Whirlpool boat that is enclosed to keep you safe from the splashing of the water, for a forty-five to sixty minute ride through the river. It is preferred that you arrive to the site at least forty-five minutes before you are scheduled to depart, and, added with the time spent on the water, the entire experience should last about two hours. Again, you can arrive at your jet boat from the unique Aero Car if you visit between June and August, and fly over the scenic river before settling into your cozy, domed jet. Or arrive from Niagara On the Lake when visiting from May to October. Then, get ready for an experience unlike any other. Your River Guide will provide narration through a headset on some of the fascinating points of interest in the area, the colorful and abundant geography, and some of the history of Niagara Falls and the river.
Ride towards Devil's Hole Rapids, where you will bounce in your seat as the water rushes and splashes around you. Don't worry, the dome will keep you dry, but you'll still feel like you need to hold on from all the excitement. Then your Coast Guard Certified captain will take you to Niagara Gorge, where the blue-green water may look beautiful, but can also be deadly. While you will be safe in the jet boat, the force and power of the water is one to be respected. Niagara Gorge's river is one of the most powerful water currents in the world. Your final main stop will be the Niagara Whirlpool, which was naturally formed over four thousand years ago when the Niagara Escarpment eroded upstream by the Falls. The retreating falls intersected with an ancient glacial river bed and Niagara Gorge was filled with loose sediment and rock. A sudden change in the water's direction caused a turbulent swirling of the river. Now, this area is recognized as the Niagara Whirlpool. In your Jet Dome Tour, you will experience the strength and power of this body of water.
See the magnificent sights of the Niagara River as you experience its power first-hand. Take one of these jet boat tours for an adventurous vacation you will never forget. Feel the pressure of the water or stay dry in these two incredible options, and leave the Niagara Falls area with stories you'll be telling for years.
