Open Jet Boat Ride

Rating 4.8/5 · 61 reviews · Duration 1h
  • Free cancellation
  • No booking or credit card fees

Board the Whirlpool Wet Jet for a thrilling adventure just miles from the raging Niagara Falls. Perform the famous "Hamilton turn"—a 360-degree turn that ends with a huge spray of water as you circle back into your own wake.

Your jet boat ride begins by heading upstream against the flow of water that pours from Niagara Falls at 30 feet (9.14 m) per second. Just a mile downstream from the falls is the Niagara Whirlpool, where you get sucked into a counterclockwise current. The jet boat revs its 1500-horsepower engine to pull you out of the whirlpool and back down the Niagara River.

On the ride back experience the Class 5 rapids known as Devil's Hole. If you weren't soaked already, here's your chance, as the front of the boat fills knee-deep with water. You're sure happy you brought a change of dry clothes for the car ride home.
