Whirlpool Jet Boats
Of course the combatants of the War of 1812 didn’t travel the mighty Niagara River on Whirlpool Jet Boats, but in this day and age you can retrace their historical journey as part of a Whirlpool Jet Boat Tour (WJBT). The jet boat tour is more than just the historical nuances of the Niagara area. It’s a once in a life time opportunity to comfortably experience what is commonly referred to as the “Mount Everest” of white water.
As you speed along the Lower Niagara River at 80 km/h in the confines of this truly one of a kind jet boat, the river guide will tell you all about the fascinating history of the Niagara area, local points of interest as well as the mechanics of the impressive vessel you are touring in.
Highlights of your round trip will include the power plants of the Niagara Gorge, the 175ft. stone wall canyon, and the Whirlpool Cable Car. You’ll be astounded as the 31,000 lbs. of thrust from the jet boat vanquishes the mighty Class 5 whitewater of the Devil¹s Hole Rapids and the swirling waters of the Whirlpool. Rest assured, you’re in professional hands as all captains and Whirlpool Jet Boats are certified by both the United States Coast Guard and Transport Canada.
Whirlpool Jet Boats Tour depart daily from the Water Street Landing in Lewiston, N.Y., Niagara Falls, ON as well as the King George III Inn in Niagara on the Lake, ON where WJBT was originally established in 1992. Passengers can choose between either a “Wet Jet” or “Jet Dome” experience. WJBT’s one of a kind white water tour will hydrate your senses as you take on Class 5 white water that’s guaranteed to leave you absolutely soaking wet and amazingly refreshed. If getting wet is not for you, the Jet Dome tour follows the exact route as the Wet Jet but shelters you from the water. Passengers are ultimately encouraged to bring their cameras for the journey as they are presented with unparalleled photo opportunities while in the Gorge. For a unique and exciting Niagara adventure, Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours is a perfect fit.
