I can't say enough about how much I love Whirlpool Jetboats! The staff is fantastic! The boats...well, we've named them as we think "yellow boat" doesn't do her justice. We call her Lucy (in the sky with diamonds)! I've got a seasons pass as I live in Niagara and I work 6 days a week and on the 7th day...well, I reserve that for Jetboat. Today we did 3 runs! Each time was great. Captain John is a phenomenal driver and gets everyone wet! Our trip leaders were Madison and Taylor, both women making our runs fun and humorous. You all rock! Love you guys! Looking forward to going again soon. If you're fortunate enough to visit Niagara, put Whirlpool Jetboats on your list of things to do (and sit in row 1 or 2!)!!

Don’t waste your money! They go out for 20 minutes hit a few jumps and call it a day. It was me, my mom and 2 kids aged 10 and 9.. we were sitting in the middle row. We did NOT get wet! We did not enjoy getting on a boat and going over a few bumps for $400+ We came prepared and left pissed. Other people on the boat felt the exact same. I’m not sure how this thing is getting positive reviews.. This is a WASTE of time and money, we came prepared and left pissed. Save your money and do something worth it.

THE BEST thrill in Niagara. To start. Yes! You will get soaked! Especially if you sit in the front rows. Ride is a 40min ride up the Niagara river to the Niagara Whirpool and back. Along the way you will go through all the way up to Class 5 rapids. Videos attached are shot from the front row, with those very class 5 rapids and the wall of water that you will receive! The boat is FAST! A 1500hp beast that speeds a long the river and plows through everything like butter.

Thank you so much for your amazing five-star review! We are so happy to hear that you had a great experience with Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours! The front rows are definitely the peak splash zone, and you for sure get soaked on the trip! We appreciate your support and hope to see you again!
