Have a riverboat and a need for speed?
Try your hand in the annual poker rally, or go for a family ride on the Athabasca River and enjoy the scenic landscape and wildlife.
Whitecourt is one of just four locations worldwide to host the World Jet Boat Marathon along with New Zealand, Mexico and the USA. While you are waiting for the worlds, you can enjoy the Annual Jet Boat Races every August. Events are centered out of Whitecourt’s Riverboat Park.
Notice to Boaters
Whitecourt reminds boaters that there will be continued work in the river this summer as part of the River Erosion Control Project. Work will take place upstream from the Highway 43 Bridge and near the Whitecourt Golf & Country Club. Please use caution in these areas, and refer to the map attached which details where new erosion control spurs have been constructed.
