Highlights / General details
Take a walk like no other, along a boardwalk at the very edge of one of the world's wildest stretches of whitewater! After traveling down 230 feet, you’ll marvel at the relentless power and beauty of nature as you walk along 1000
feet of the whitewater rapids.
First, you'll ride an elevator down 70 metres, then walk along a 73 metre tunnel to the boardwalk--305 metres (1,000 feet or ¼ mile) with stairs that lead to two observation areas at the edge of the river. As the water travels through the Whirlpool Rapids at White Water Walk, it is traveling at about 48 km/hr or 30 mph, creating the Class 6 Whirlpool Rapids.
The Whirlpool Rapids consist of four kilometers of three to five meter standing waves, making this stretch of whitewater the largest/finest series of standing waves in North America. This site also provides visitors with an excellent view of the 410-million-year-old rock layers of the Niagara Gorge.
