Absolutely fantastic! Was in the 4th row and I got soaked but it wasn't overwhelming like I was drowning. Staff were extremely professional, I felt very safe while having an incredible amount of fun. There is no way to avoid getting wet so be prepared. Definitely don't try to bring belongings on board, they'd fly out. High tech lockers keep... More

This was a highlight of the trip. Absolutely loved it! You are going to get wet clear through - even though they give you 3 layers of protective gear and a life vest - so take a whole set of extra clothes. They have swim shoes, but not many sizes so take extra shoes also. Don't sit in front 3... More

The folks are very professional and enjoyable. The changing area afterwards was clean, thanks. It is an understatement, that you will get wet in the first three rows, well on all the rows :-]. Yes, I would add this to one of the events to do when visiting the Niagara Falls. Well worth taking this Jet Boast tour. Also, Niagara... More

I have to agree with a previous reviewer who said sitting in the front 3 rows was intense. We sat in the front row thinking it would just mean we got the most wet. When you went through the rapids you do feel as though you're 'drowning' as the water hits you so fast and there's so much of it.... More

Omg what a blast ! You will get soaked but that's the point of it. It's a wild thrill ride. Book ahead and there are lots of coupons in line and In The Niagara coupon books from the visitor centre. We have done it all in Niagara and this is in our top 2. Our 10 year old son had... More

This is sheer adrenaline when the boat hits the many whirlpools along the lower Niagara River. The hotter the day the better the feeling of being drenched in thousands of gallons of cool river water as the jet boat navigates the turbulent waters of the Niagara. The safety record is amazing for the number of boats in operation, but skilled... More

It was one of the best activities to do in Niagara falls. I would definitely go back and do this again.

I thought this would be intense, based on all the videos I watched...and it was!!! But even more importantly, you get a beautiful and scenic boat ride too! I would highly reccomend bringing a change of clothes and a towel with you because you will be SOAKED (unless you take the covered boat...which I'd only do if it was really... More

So first let me tell you I was pretty apprehensive about taking this ride. I've seen the boats from shore before...and finally decided to take the plunge!! I took a trip in an uncovered boat...Best to get wet if you are going to do it at all. So here are some tips: You have to call ahead and book your... More
