    Whirlpool jets into 25th year

    No Comments

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    When Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours opened its doors in 1992, it was a modest affair.

    A single boat took passengers through soaking whitewater from the Niagara River mouth in Niagara-on-the-Lake through the Devil’s Hole Rapids to the Niagara Whirlpool.

    This year marks the 25th for the business headquartered in the town.

    It now boasts a fleet of eight, 50-passenger jet boats that depart from Niagara-on-the-Lake, Niagara Falls, Ont., (via a shuttle to the Queenston dock) and Lewiston, N.Y.

    Its format: approximately one-hour tours that fold in highlights about the famous river’s complex geology and history.

    Passengers also choose between two types of trips; wet or dry in a covered “Jet Dome.”

    This season is the earliest ever, following one of the mildest winters in recent years. The launch is about three weeks earlier than usual.

    From the Niagara Gazette:

    Nik Wallenda enjoyed a day-off in Niagara Falls on Monday, taking a jet boat and helicopter ride with family, friends and cast members of his Darien Lake show.

    Along with performing at Darien Lake, he is also performing at the Erie County Fair on Sunday. I’m going on Saturday, so I will be missing it
