There’s a much greater volume of water, and a lot of turbulence at the base of Niagara Falls. I have visited Palouse Falls, and photographed it, several times. I don’t know how deep the plunge pool is, but I doubt there are any boulders in it. Not that I would undertake such a stunt, being basically a non-swimmer, but for a daredevil so inclined, this seems a suitable site for it.

At the site there is an interview of the guy and he basically says the same thing as you. He would not have done it if the water was hot projecting so far out from the mountain.

He noticed a finger of clear water in the fall and realized that if he caught that he could be fine. He tried and succeeded in catching that finger of water and made it with a bruised wrist and a broken paddle, Cool, still crazy, but cool.
