November 3, 2012 – January 31, 2013
For 30 years, Niagara residents and Niagara visitors have enjoyed this spectacular winter tradition. This year, the festival opened on November 3, 2012 with a dramatic flipping of a giant switch to illuminate the 3 million lights that make up the over 125 animated lighting displays.

Whirlpool Jet Boats in Niagara are AWESOME!
The editors of Niagara.ca enjoyed a wonderful day in Niagara-on-the-Lake. And, the highlight of our trip to NOTL was the Jet Boat Niagara Adventure!
Our 7pm departure on this hour long adventure began at the docks at the bottom of Melville Street in NOTL. There were four in our group, and only one person had the foresight to bring a change of clothes.
WET! WET! WET!
Life Preservers, Sweaters, Rain Coats (with Hoods), and even Shoe ‘Booties’ are all provided at no charge. But, even with all this gear, everyone on the Jet Boat gets absolutely drenched! There are no exceptions. Before departure, you pick where you want to sit. The front ‘Power Rows’ are the bumpiest, and the seats on the sides are supposed to be the ‘wettest’, but it doesn’t matter where you sit. You are guaranteed to get wet!
Our skilled pilot was Captain John. He knew where to navigate the Jet Boat to ensure maximum waves and extreme fun. Jet-boating the Niagara River is an incredible experience, and the rapids are fantastic. Everyone loved the ‘Hamilton 360′ Turns (named after the manufacturer of the Hamilton Jet Engines), and the ‘White Water Rapids’.
An Avalanche of Water!
It was a surprise to feel how warm the water is, when it ‘slaps’ you in the face. As you experience rapids and waves such as ‘Flash Flood’ and ‘Big Kahuna’, be prepared for an avalanche of water to come over the side of the Jet Boat, and soak everyone on-board!
Hold Your Breath!
When the water hits, be sure to hold your breath! Hundreds of gallons of water come crashing down on you, and an open mouth, or poorly timed ‘inhale’ will give you the full sensation of the power and magnitude of the roaring waves.
Your Family Adventure
Moms, Dads, Kids, Grandmas and Grandpas all love Jet Boating. From age 6 to 96, the Niagara Jet Boats are an awesome family adventure.
Jet Boat Captains are Coast Guard certified, and the entire crew are highly trained.
