Of course the combatants of the War of 1812 didn't travel the mighty Niagara River on a 1500 horsepower Jet Boat but in this day and age you can retrace their historical journey as part of a Whirlpool Jet Boat Tour!
The jet boat tour is more than just the historical nuances of the Niagara area. It’s a once in a life time opportunity to comfortably experience what is commonly referred to as the “Mount Everest” of white water.
As you speed along the Lower Niagara River at 80 km/h in the confines of this truly one of a kind jet boat, the river guide will tell you all about the fascinating history of the Niagara area, local points of interest as well as the mechanics of the impressive vessel you are touring in.
Highlights of your round trip will include the power plants of the Niagara Gorge, the 175ft. stone wall canyon, and the Whirlpool Cable Car. You¹ll be astounded as the 31,000 lbs. of thrust from the jet boat vanquishes the mighty Class 5 whitewater of the Devil¹s Hole Rapids and the swirling waters of the Whirlpool. Rest assured, you’re in professional hands as all captains and jet boats are certified by both the United States Coast Guard and Transport Canada.
