While walking along the Niagara River in Lewiston, New York that goes between Niagara Falls and Lake Ontario, there were many boats that went speeding by.  Most of these were specialized jet boats that were taking groups of passengers up the river.  They easily fought the tremendous currents and swirling water of the river and headed up right into the “Devils Whirlpool“.   These boats brought groups of tourists up the river doing circles and spins and probably getting everyone soaked in all the fun.  I would hate to try to paddle a kayak or canoe across this area, or swim.

There was even a nice Coastgaurd boat patroling and protecting the waters of the Niagara River.
