Fun for Everyonne

Something you must do. You will get wet but that"s half the fun. Any age (except babies) will love this ride. Exciting, well organized and great for small or large groups.

because you're going to get wet! As well as having the time of your life. Having grown up near this river, to actually boat through the most dangerous parts of it was awe-inspiring. The Jet Boat people are without a doubt the best in the business. Don't plan on bringing small children as you can be hit by huge wrenching... More

Of all the activities my three children and I did while in Niagara Falls, this was by far their favorite (I think mine too!). We had made our reservation for Sunday thinking that Saturday we'd have no time with all of the activities that were included in the package that I had purchased, but we had left early enough that...

Excellent adventure! Once in a lifetime! Bring extra clothes for the open boat as you will get soaked, saying that recommend open boat for the summer months as the water is always cold and don't take anything that can't get wet. Beautiful boat ride then so exciting when you get to the rapids. Don't recommend it for the faint of... More

Experience the Niagara River, on the river and prepare to get WET. The tour takes you through Class 5 rapids. You'll go through them several times to ensure that every inch of your body is thoroughly soaked. You get an opportunity to do donuts in the Whirlpool. They also pull up in front of the Class 6 rapids so you... More

Oh my goodness, this is worth every single penny. The most fun I have ever had. Warning... you will get VERY VERY wet! Doesn't matter if you have a poncho and a rain coat, every inch of you will get wet!!

We were on a family trip for my dads 70th birthday. My husband decided he was going to take the whole group on this tour (open air). Now if my mom and aunts knew this was coming they would DEFINITELY not go. However they were kinda stuck by the time we arrived. They had never done anything like this in... More

Great way to see the Niagara River, whirlpool, power stations and experience the white water rapids. Try the open jet boat on a warm day because you will definitely get wet...but stay dry in the domed jet boat.

This was my first time on this tour. I was concerned for absolutely nothing. Glad I had the courage to go! It is not as frightening as I thought. Had a great trip and the 360's were a lot of fun! I sat midway and made sure I stayed very relaxed. I had no trouble at all. Screamed a whole... More
