Whirpool Jet Boat Tours kicks off historic season

Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours is celebrating its 25th anniversary in Niagara.

The company has provided both tourists and locals a taste of the Niagara River for a quarter century and now features a fleet of 8 custom built boats. 

Niagara's Devil's Hole Rapids are some of the best in the world and considered some of the most difficult to navigate, giving riders a unique experience.

Owner John Kinney says he expects a strong season to mark Canada's 150th birthday.

To celebrate, Whirlpool Jets will be providing $50 passes for local residents all season long.

This year's season will begin on April 22nd and run through October.

Based in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Whirlpool Jet also has locations in Niagara Falls as well as across the river in Lewiston.
