How long is the trip?
The trips depart from the Old Port in Montreal and are 60 minutes (round trip).

Where does the boat go?
From the departure point, we travel upriver from the Old Port of Montreal. The boat makes its way into the famous Lachine Rapids and then we head back on down river under the Champlain Bridge. You return to the same location from which you boarded as our tour is a round trip excursion.

How many people does the boat hold?
We have 3 boats in our fleet. Jet boats hold 48 passengers each.

Are there any age or height restrictions to ride on the Jet Boat?
For the jet boat trip you must be at least 6 years old and 44 inches tall (which is the average for a 6 yr old).
Guests under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Guests under the age of 18 need a parent or guardian present to sign participation waivers.

Can seniors take part in the trip?
There is NO AGE LIMIT! We do maintain, however, that participants of any age should be of good health, free of heart, neck or back issues and not pregnant. Also, seating in the boat is first come, first serve and cannot be reserved. People with young children (under 10 years old) must sit towards the back of the boat.

Do you get wet on the trip?
On the tour you get absolutely soaked. At times while engaged in the Lachine Rapids during your tour experience, you can be seated knee deep in water in the boat. Regardless of the gear we provide, we recommend a complete change of clothes and of course we have change rooms on site.

I know I’m going to get wet but is there some sort of gear you provide Jet Boaters?
Yes we do provide ponchos, life jackets, booties and under-layers to our passengers which will help to keep you more comfortable on board. The gear is useful in keeping you a lot warmer (but certainly not drier). Passengers can elect to wear their own footwear or sandals but must realize they will be getting wet. If electing to bring your sandals they must have a back strap (no flip flops or crocs).
