If you are in the Niagara Falls, NY area and it is summer, then visit Whirlpool Jet Boat. The boat starts off slow and gets really fast. You will get wet, so my advice is to wear a swimsuit under your clothes. They have "changing" areas which are not the best but get the job done. The jet boat ride... More

Went with 16 people, but only 14 went on the ride. Fantastic, the driver of the boat and our tour girl were great. It was a nice warm and sunny days which makes a great ride as you can dry off pretty fast. The rapids were wonderful, the more you twirled your finger the more the driver went in circles... More

This is a must go if you are in Niagara Falls. The ride is thrilling, fast and is highly recommended for adrenaline lovers. The boat slowly cruises over the waters to reach the white water point where the fun begins. Be prepared to get drenched and have lots fun. The pictures and the video are fairly costly but worth buying.... More

It was a very very fast ride, I would recommend to wear a swim suit and see if you could sit in the front for the best experience

This was an exciting end to our two day trip to Niagara Falls, New York. Although we prefer kayaking, after viewing the fun these jet boats were having in the rapids of the Niagara river, we had to give it a try. When you book the trip, find the discount coupon it saves you $5 off the ride. They tell... More

We left from Lewiston but they have two other locations to choose from. If you leave from Niagara On The Lake it is a15 minute longer trip. Next time I will do that one because I couldn't get enough of this awesome experience! Do it!!

This 45 minute boat ride does not disappoint!! They live up to their goal of not having any dry spots on your body! Such a fun thing to do for those of any age. The skills of the captain is amazing. Sean and Shelby rock!!

This was an amazing experience. I have actually done this twice in the past 4 years. The experience is excellent for a warm summer day! I can only say that it is a little pricey. It is about $60 per person.

It's such a fun thing to do if you are visiting Niagara Falls. It's safe and the trip guides are fun. Did I mention you get soaking wet..well..the boat crew promise you that there is not a single person or any part of your body will stay dry in the boat. They keep up their word and its the most...

This is the most fun I've had in a long time. Didn't stop grinning until long after I fell asleep. What a great way to spend a hot day in WNY.
