    Frequently Asked Questions

    How can I stay Dry on this trip?

    Take the Jet Dome tour where you do the same tour but in a covered boat instead of the open-top jet boat

    Can seniors take this trip?

    There is no age limit, though there is a height limit (you must be at least 44 inches tall or 3 feet 4 inches). You must be of good health, free of heart, neck or back issues and not pregnant.

    How is seating arranged?

    Seating is first come, first served and cannot be reserved. Young children (under 10 must sit towards the back of the boat)

    How long is the trip?

    Trips departing from Niagara-on-the-Lake are 60 minutes (round trip) while tours departing from Niagara Falls ON and Lewiston NY are 45 minutes (round trip). This time difference is because of the locations' proximity to the Niagara Gorge. All 3 departures spend the same amount of time in the rapids!

    Where does the boat go?

    From either departure point, we travel upriver (south) and into the Niagara Gorge. Once in the gorge, 175 ft walls ascend from above the water line. The boat makes its way into the famous whirlpool and then we head back on down (north) through Devil's Hole Rapids. You return to the same location from which you boarded as our tour is a round trip excursion.

    How many people does the boat hold?

    There are 8 boats in the fleet. The Jet Dome holds 40 passengers. The Wet Jet boats hold 48 passengers each and two hold 54 passengers.
