A new package offered by Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours this season isn’t for the faint of heart.  I can tell you from experience!!!  

The Wet and Wild Adventure allows thrill seekers to get their adrenalin pumping on three of Niagara’s top adventure attractions.

The package includes an hour-long joy ride with Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours from the mouth of the Niagara River through the Class 5 Devil’s Hole Rapids and to just below the incredibly powerful Niagara Whirlpool. From there, adventurers get a birds-eye view of the incredible scenery. The package includes a breathtaking zipline ride to the base of Niagara Falls with Wildplay MistRider Zipline and a spectacular obstacle course suspended over the Niagara Gorge with Wildplay Whirlpool Adventure Course.

Whirlpool has partnered with several other premier Niagara attractions to create packages that offer great entertainment and value, including:

Boats and Brews

This package combines a ride on one of Whirlpool’s jet boats and a visit to Niagara-on-the-Lake craft beer maker Silversmith Brewing Company. Since 2011, Silversmith has been brewing high-quality award-winning character beers. In addition to a boarding pass with Whirlpool, this package includes a flight of four of Silversmith’s most-popular brews.
Rapids and Retail

Following a white-knuckle jet boat trip through the white water of the Niagara River, this package also features a shopping trip to Fashion Outlets Niagara Falls USA in Niagara Falls, NY. Included in the price are a $20 Visa gift card for use at the outlet, a fashion savings pass and exclusive retailer coupons.


After drying off from their adrenalin-fuelled jet boat ride, travellers on this package get to see Niagara Falls and the gorge from another perspective, courtesy of Niagara Helicopters. The helicopter flight follows the Niagara River, giving passengers an incredible view of the rapids they just navigated in a jet boat, plus the Whirlpool and other sights along the river.
Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours is celebrating its 25th season helping adventure lovers experience the power of the Niagara River. The company officially opened its doors to the public in 1992 with a single boat. It now operates a fleet of eight 50-passenger jet boats from three departure locations on both sides of the river — Niagara-on-the-Lake and Niagara Falls in Ontario and Lewiston, New York.

Passengers can choose between two types of trips — wet or dry. Guests in open-topped jet boats are guaranteed to return to the dock soaking wet, doused with gallons of water while their boat pilot powers them through the rapids at high speed and expertly spins them through the chop in a complete 360-degree turn. Passengers in the covered Jet Dome get the same thrill ride, minus the splash, and return as dry as they were at the outset.

About Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours:

Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours has been giving passengers a taste of adventure on the white water of the Niagara River since 1992. Passengers experience a thrilling and educational one-hour guided tour, where they can take in the awe-inspiring scenery of the Niagara Gorge, feel the rush of the Class 5 Devil’s Hole rapids and marvel at the power of the Niagara Whirlpool. Headquartered in Niagara-on-the-Lake, the tour company’s fleet of custom-built jet boats depart from three locations: Niagara-on-the-Lake, Niagara Falls, Ont. (shuttle bus from Floral Clock on Niagara Parkway to Queenston dock) and Lewiston, N.Y.

Thank you so much for stopping by this page to get to know a bit more about me and why I started Parent Guide Inc. My business story started a way back in 2001... …after the birth of my first daughter, I realized that an "all-in-one" resource guide for parents was needed, and fast! I designed the New Parent Resource Guide to fill a gap in the community for busy parents like myself. The New Parent Resource Guide offers an A-Z of key contacts for parents, caregivers, service providers, and health care professionals.  Working with key businesses and organizations in the community, we have also compiled much-needed articles, tips, and charts to answer all your parenting questions. The latest addition to our family is the School Age Resource Guide to serve parents of children, 3 to 18 years!  This guide answers questions about: nutrition, bullying, curriculum, building self-esteem, and much more, as well as offering a full directory of local and national resources. The Parentguide.ca website offers an “all-in-one” spot for parents to connect, add their own blog, and find needed resources in their community.  It is a site that educates and entertains and if you can't find somthing just ASK me. I am here to serve YOU!  My hope is that you connect with our members, find comfort in their words, and share your own story. My goal is to see what I can do to help make life a bit easier for you.   You are why I do what I do! I can’t wait to get to know you!  Comment below to tell me about yourself – then start blogging so we can find out what makes you get up in the morning!  Check out my blog too and I am sure you will be surprised what gets me out of bed each day!!!
