How long is the tour with Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours in Niagara?

The tours that leave from Niagara Falls ON and Lewiston NY are 45 minutes long (round trip). All of the tours go the same way and spend the same amount of time in the rapids.

Does the tour take you to Niagara Falls?

No, none of these tours will take you to Niagara Falls. The boats go upriver into the Niagara Gorge, through the Class V Rapids at Devil’s Hole, and up to the Niagara Whirlpool. Niagara Falls and the Whirlpool are separated by a stretch of Class VI rapids that are illegal to cross.

How many passengers can the boat carry?

Depending on the type of boat, it can hold 48 to 62 passengers.

Do you end up getting wet during the journey?

The “Wet Jet” tour gets you completely soaked. During your Wet Jet tour, you may find yourself knee deep in water in the boat while navigating the Devil’s Hole Rapids. We recommend a complete change of clothes regardless of the equipment we provide, and we have change rooms on site.

Those taking the “Dry Freedom Jet” tour will stay dry inside the enclosed boat.

What is the difference between Wet Jet Tours and Wet Freedom Jet Tours?

All tours take the same 45-minute journey into the Niagara Gorge and through the Class V rapids at Devil’s Hole.
Every Wet Jet vessel is open-topped, and every seat will be completely soaked.
The Freedom Jet vessel is mostly enclosed (dry Freedom Jet seats), but the very front has two rows of wet seating. These are “power rows,” so guests must be at least 13 years old, weigh 100 pounds, and have no history of heart, neck, or back problems. WET seats on the Freedom Jet can only be purchased by adults.
