What You Can Expect

Niagara Falls Open Jet Boat Tour

Niagara Falls Open Jet Boat Tour

Arrive 45 minutes early to register, sign a participation agreement and attend a mandatory safety orientation. Then grab a poncho, some water shoes and a life jacket (because it’s going  to get wet) and hop on board to find a seat on the Wet Jet deck, which can accommodate up to 12 people.

Take in the shoreline, beginning at beautiful and tranquil Niagara-on-the-Lake, and check out sites like Brock's Monument and Fort Niagara before reaching the Class 5 Devil’s Hole Rapids, where things get really choppy. Hold on tight because it’s about to get even bumpier amidst the heart-pounding Class 6 rapids of the swirling Niagara Gorge. Then there are the captain’s thrilling 360-degree spins.

This adventure is about more than just thrills, however. Look around and appreciate the stunning scenery on this 18-mile journey. And learn about the history and geology of the majestic Niagara River while experiencing the excitement of playing in whitewater rapids. This Niagara jet boat tour is sure to be one of the most memorable experiences of any visit to Niagara Falls.

Please note: This tour is seasonal, operating from May through to October.

We made a 4 hr trip to Niagara Falls just to ride the Jet Boat. The ride was great but our reservations were messed up having to wait an extra 4 hrs to ride from our reserved time thus getting us home very late that night. This was our 3rd time to ride, perhaps our last.
