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 and departs from the US.

This tour of Niagara River is awesome and educational. It doesn't take you to the falls but it does take you through some awesome rapids. You should go in swim wear with ladies hair pulled up, sun glasses and sunscreen. Not a very long tour but you will get wet!!. There is a wonderful town to visit before or after, and make sure to stop and get a basket of fresh fruit from the roadside vendors.

All went very smooth from the time we got there until the time we left. Jordan and Jenn were awesome. Fun experience for the 6 of us. we were in Row 4 and were completely saturated with water and the waves from the Niagara River. We had a great time and enjoyed a nice lunch in Lewiston after.

This tour was awesome. You get wet no matter what but that and #39;s the fun of it. Our group of 5 went to the wrong location, called said we would be late, they didn and #39;t think we would make it but with some hustle we did and they where very accommodating with 3 mins before the boat was set to leave. great!!!
