WE’RE LOOKING FOR OUTGOING, ADVENTUROUS AND ENERGETIC INDIVIDUALS TO JOIN OUR TEAM!

Working at Whirlpool Jet is not your average summer job. We’re in the business of making memories and sharing the magic of whitewater with everyone we meet. If a summer of sun, fun and adventure sounds too good to be true – you may have just found your dream job. 

WHY WHIRLPOOL?

A SUMMER LIKE NO OTHER
There’s nothing quite like summer days on the river. We may be a little biased—but it’s kind of the dream.
WORK HARD, PLAY HARDER
This is jetboating, after all. We're serious about safety—but not much else. Having fun is kind of mandatory here.
EMBRACE ADVENTURE
No two days at Whirlpool Jet are alike, and that's part of the fun. We think on our feet and work as a team. “Boring” is not in our vocabulary.
MAKE SOMEONES DAY
We're in the business of creating unforgettable memories— there's nothing better than being the highlight of a family's vacation
FRIENDSHIPS THAT LAST A LIFETIME
Our staff becomes a tight-knit group of friends, not just co-workers. We don’t call ourselves the ‘Jet Boat Family’ for nothing.

JUST A SUMMER GIG!

YOU DON’T HAVE TO COMMIT TO A CAREER, JUST A FEW MONTHS OF FUN AND SUN

Most of our positions are seasonal, beginning in late April-May and finishing around Halloween. But our staff love it so much, they come back every summer!

CAPTAIN

Oh Captain, my Captain!

Our Jet Boat Captains have the most important role at Whirlpool Jet. They operate our triple-turbo diesel vessels through our whitewater playground - the Class V rapids of the Niagara Gorge.

If you want to be the driver behind 1500 horsepower & 31,000 lbs of thrust, then this is the job for you! Current First Aid and CPR certifications are preferred but all training and certifications are provided in-house for successful candidates.

TRIP LEADER

Soaked and stoked!

DOCK HAND

You float my boat!

The Dock Hand is the go-to guy for our Captains and Trip Leaders.

Be our guest!

They are our human encyclopedias and have the answer to any jetboating question.

DIGITAL MEDIA & RETAIL AGENT

Lights, cameras, action!

Our Digital Media & Retail Agents have the perfect mixture of creative flair and people skills. They capture and edit all of the photos and videos of our tours, for sale in our Retail River Shop. You may ask, ‘how do the guests look so good while getting pummelled in the face with water?’ It’s an art and our DMR Agents are the experts. For this position, you must like making people smile and have a love for the digital arts. The ability to sell lots of magnets is considered an asset.

SALES & MARKETING ASSISTANT

Aspiring influencers!

Our Sales & Marketing Assistants are the face of our brand – creating content for social media, engaging with guests, and meeting journalists are just a few of their many hats.
