I'm a boater, however I've never experienced anything like that. Amazing, exciting and better than a roller coaster.

when the boat made a sudden turn and the 20 foot wave rose, no hope in hell of not getting drenched to the bone, the chill that runs down the spine when the cool water of the niagara river hits you. I have done it twice and would do it again and again and again

Do not ever go to Niagara Falls and not do this tour. It is worth every penny. YOU WILL GET SOAKED so plan accordingly.

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.

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
