I do not recommend this, it was the biggest waste of time and money. I went on a different jet adventure and loved it. I recommend you keep looking. I DO NOT RECOMMEND GOING HERE.

We sat in the 2nd row and we got soaked/drenched! Bring a change of clothes. They have changing rooms and lockers. The staff were knowledgeable about the niagara River and the powerhouses (CA & US). Worth the moeny! Nice way to cool off on a hot day! They provide water shoes if you come unprepared.

Not going to repeat the great reviews here. Just a few tips: 1) The first 3 rows are 'power rows'. You will be way more than soaked. The guide told us nobody less than 100 lb should sit there. 2) Depending on how the boat hit the waves, sitting at the back does not guarantee not getting soaked (we sat... More

Jessie and I were on our honeymoon for first week of August. The jet boat tour was recommended and we loved it. I enjoyed seeing the rapids and hearing the facts about the Niagara River, canyon and the powerhouse. The ride was exciting enough. Best of all it was a super cool way to beat the heat. The trip was... More

Worth every penny!! Great for all ages. Our boat was filled with children 7yr to seniors well into their late 60s early 70s!! Wettest seats are the first and second row, and the end seats. No one will be left dry though!! Had a blast!!

Unexpected outing during my vacation to Niagara falls. I would do this again. To ride white water rapids was exciting. I wish I had taken my water proof camera. Held on like I was on a rollercoaster....loved it. Perfect timing during August to get wet. A definite do to get the feel of the powers of the rivers.

We did this at the end of a big trip and it was a great way to end the trip. You get soaked, utterly and completely. Wear warm clothes. It's warm on the dock but it's cold when the boat goes fast and wet and the poncho is not at all waterproof. Wear the fleeces they give you. Bring a... More

Although this was a bit expensive for our family, we all had a great time. We sat in front row of the boat and I would recommend this. You get wet everywhere on the boat, but the front seat was fun. My young adult kids loved it. Our guide was great and the captain gave us a fun ride. Most... More

My family had a great time. It was my second trip but my 15 & 10 year olds first time. We had a blast. It is a little pricey so use local coupons, but definitely a good time- be prepared to be drenched and get slapped in the face by a wall of cold water. Not for the faint of... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip. My children (13 and 16) and I loved this tour. The staff was very friendly and entertaining, the boat ride was exciting (and wet), and gave us an experience unlike any other we had in Niagara or Toronto. I would definitely recommend it!
