Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Arrive early to register, sign a participation agreement, and attend a mandatory safety orientation. Then grab a poncho, some water shoes and a life jacket (because it’s going to get wet) and hop on board to find a seat on the Wet Jet deck, which can accommodate up to 12 people.

Take in the shoreline, beginning at beautiful and tranquil Niagara-on-the-Lake, and check out sites like Brock's Monument and Fort Niagara before reaching Devil’s Hole Rapids, where things get really choppy. Hold on tight because it’s about to get even bumpier amidst the heart-pounding rapids of the swirling Niagara Gorge. Then there are the captain’s thrilling 360-degree spins.

This adventure is about more than just thrills, however. Look around and appreciate the stunning scenery on this 18-mile journey. And learn about the history and geology of the majestic Niagara River while experiencing the excitement of playing in whitewater rapids.

My son and I were very excited to take this boat trip. It was fun and all but not what we expected. The description of this adventure was not quite right. There is only one section of Rapids that we went through several times, by the description it sounded like you went through several sections of Rapids. Also, the promotional video shows you doing 360s it was more like 270s and only about three of them. I did a similar tour in another state, in the ocean, and we did 360s in place over and over again.... that was fun. We did have a good time just thought it would be different and a bit overpriced.

The attention to the people that were on the trip. I just had my knees replaced and they helped me get in and out of the boat. The ride itself was fantastic, phenomenal, unbelievable! Next time I'm in Niagara Falls again I will definitely go on another trip
