This was indeed an exciting experience. Don't go if you do not want to get wet. This is a jet boat that takes you up the Niagara river to ride through the white waters. The commentary was good. So this tour was fun, racing along at high speed getting absolutely soaked. The tour lasts one hour at a cost of... More

Four of us took the open air whirlpool jet tour. You are warned that you will get wet from head to toe and this proved true. The ride was fun, though none of us could understand what the tour leader was saying when he stood in the front of the boat, so we missed out on learning the history of... More

Our family was on a short vacation. We had seen Niagra Falls, both walking and riding the boat, but this is a great way to see a different kind of Niagra. The jet boat is very exciting and a lot of fun. You need to be ready to get WET! The day we went actually and a thunder storm and... More

My husband and I went in August 2014 and it was so much fun. We booked online and we purchased the USB stick, which gave us pictures and video. The video is alright nothing special. The tour itself lasted about an hour. The rapids are awesome! To experience the power of the Niagara river was exhilarating! You must bring a... More

even with a 5 year old who is not a rick taker this was a blast - the water gushing from every direction is the best water park you can experience - a must do - changing rooms on site so no worries about getting totally soaked

Absolutely amazing activity. I was terrified at first but it was super exhilarating. I was at the front of the jet boat so the water from the rapids in Devil's Hole came right at me. Being from the Caribbean I was not prepared for the icy temperature even though it was summer. takes your breath away. Shawn is an amazing... More

So much fun!! I went with my twin 7 year olds and had a great time. The kids were amazed that we went into the whirlpool that we had seen from the Aero Car the day before. Guide was great at telling us what to expect. I would not recommend it to anyone with back problems, we had to turn... More

We booked at the office on the day and spent some time in niagara on the lake before the tour. We knew we would get wet, but we were completely soaked by the end of the trip. So glad we had a change of clothes. The tour was well organised and felt safe throughout. The boys loved it and would... More

How fun was this?!!! I was reluctant to go because I am not a big water lover or activities in the water. But I was with a group of 26 family members and we went on the Jet Boat. It starts off slow and it is a nice cruise with a very entertaining staff. Then as you get towards the... More

Well organized operation. Group safety and prep meeting before boarding along with some commercial picture taking. Guides tell you what to expect and some local history of the forts on both sides of the river mouth. Start slow through the marinas and power plant dams then the pace picks up - quickly! Some fancy piloting to splash you down a... More
