Being in the hospitality industry I always recommend this trip to my guests when asked about fun excersions. This is my#1 choice of the area and again I was not disappointed. Absolutely entertaining, well... More

We took this on recent stay..we did the dry boat ( wet boat requires change clothes ) you do get very wet...next time we would prepare to have change clothes or bathing suit. It was a lot of fun, well done as you cruise the Niagagra River and the class 5 Rapids. Exciting but very safe. A lot of fun...

To begin with, when you are taking the boat tour in an uncovered boat, you will get soaked. Of course that's the thrill of the ride. But if its cold outside and you're not dressed properly, you might shiver for the ride back. They do have lockers and change rooms inside and they provide water shoes, raincoats and life jackets....

Whirlpool jetboat was great!!! One of my favourite parts was getting to drive thru the two hydro dams. My only complaint was we felt it took forever to actually get going. We were on a three boat departure block and were the last boat to board and depart. Plus the safety orientation and ensuring we arrived early. Tip: make sure... More

This is truly an awesome adventure up through the the Niagara gorge past the massive power plants to the Whirlpool. This is the only boat that can navigate this part of the river. Then play around in the lower rapids and get drenched!! Wow! What fun!

Omg... Amazing experience. I will definitely going to do this again. I had so much fun❤️❤️❤️. The captain, guides are very friendly. The bus transfer from their office to the dock is smooth. Just bring extra outfit and towel because you will be soaking wet and i meant really soaking dripping wet. Love love love my experience ❤️❤️❤️❤️

The Jet Boat tour was my favorite activity at Niagara Falls. You go up and down class 5 rapids several times and really crash into the waves. Our guide Taylor was very enthusiastic. Recommended for all ages.

Been on the covered boat once was awesome. Then the summer months uncovered boats even better. So much fun and thrilling. You get soaked. We love it and keep going back. Worth every penny paid.
