We booked this on a whim at the last minute... And we're glad we did :) Arriving 45 minutes early really wasn't necessary. After checking in, we were able to spend about 20 minutes down by the edge of the water before we needed to...More

Fun 1 hour trip up the Niagara river into class 5 rapids. When they say you will get wet it is an understatement; be prepared to get completely drenched, but it is a ton of fun! Awesome views!

Very spectaculair. Getting wet to the bones. Nice people and before the action started we were nicely entertained true one of the guides on the boot. You get sweater, raincloth, swimming shors and life-vest. Maked some pictures, just bring a waterproof camera.
