We had intended to ride the cable car over the Rapids, but arrived and they were closed due to high winds. Looking over, we saw the jets... SO thankful that we did! On the spot, we called to book a ride. We were advised to take towels and a change of clothing, but we were an hour and a half... More

My friend and I decided to this tour and we are so glad we did. The tour was well organized, extremely fun, and tour guide (Alaina) was very entertaining as we went up the 9 mile Niagara River through class 1-5 rapids. The information shared was funny and our boat cptn was extremely skilled. We got extremely wet- which was... More

This tour is totally worth it. Definitely bring a change of clothes since you'll get soaked. Went through the rapids about 4 times. The back of the boat is not as great as the front wish they had assigned seating so it would be more fair and you'd be able to book your seat before arriving. Friendly staff. The scenery... More

Dear DrFil, Thank you your review...we greatly appreciate your feedback. Assigned seating would cause for extremely long lines and unfortunately not work due to our bench seating format. We do inform our guests that our seating is based on first come first served basis while boarding at the departure point. Many of our guests take extra time putting on gear... More

Nate Dog and Captain Jordan were the best!!! I would travel to Canada again just for the whirlpool jet tour experience. We sat on the back of the boat and still got soak and wet. It was like riding on a coaster in untamed waters!! This is a must do attraction.

If you do nothing else do the jet boat. Kat and Dan were great. It was awesome. We got off and turned right around to see if we could schedule another run but didn't work since we were leaving the next day.

You will get wet, you will get soaked! Our guide was Cat and she was excellent as was the driver of our boat. Be sure to get there 45 minutes ahead of time since you get on a bus right after checking in. The bus takes you to the boat. After a brief safety talk, you get your life jacket... More

This ride was a real thrill, and pretty exciting. Getting splashed with water was a welcome break from the heat and sun. It's basically like a roller coaster ride on water. There were some young kids behind us who cried and were scared about half-way through, but they made it through ok. My own son was a bit nervous about... More

Thank you for your comments! Sorry to hear that some of the younger kids on this tour were nervous. We purposely seat younger children closer to the back and in the center of the vessel so they feel safe. Safety is always our number 1 priority.
