Cruise the Whirlpool Gorge While Its Bursting With Fall Colours

Reading Time:  3 minutes -

Niagara’s autumn is the most colourful season and the foliage in Niagara’s river gorge offers stunning hues of yellow, red, and orange, providing the ideal backdrop for a river boat tour.

The best way to access the river gorge is through a Whirlpool Jet Boat tour, which provides an opportunity to see all the fall colours this month. Jet Boat riders will see all the sights of the whirlpool river gorge as the leaves transform into a kaleidoscope of colour; they will also get right up-close to Class 5 whitewater rapids on the roaring Niagara river.

The jet boat tour is more than just learning about the history of the Niagara region. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance to comfortably experience what’s known as the “Mount Everest” of white water.

As you travel at 80 km/h along the Lower Niagara River in the gliding comfort of this extraordinary jet boat, the river guide will fill you in on the intriguing history Niagara’s past, points of interest, and the mechanics of the remarkable vessel you are travelling in.

Your journey up the river will include scenic areas like the Niagara power plants, the 175-foot stone wall canyon Whirpool Gorge, and the Whirlpool Aero Car. You will be in awe of the jet boat’s 31,000 lbs. of thrust as it navigates the challenging Class 5 rapids of the Devil’s Hole and the Whirlpool.
