This was the highlight of our trip to Niagara Falls. Make sure you do it. My husband and teenage sons weren't really interested but they had the time of their lives. You WILL get drenched. Make sure you take a change of dry clothes. If you buy the video of the ride when you get back, just be aware that... More

Although staying on the American side of the falls we had to travel to Niagara on the Lake because this is where the boats run from in the lesser seasons. Its not a problem, about half an hour by car, and its a nice journey with wineries along the way. You get a good briefing at the jet boat, you... More

I chose to purchase my ticket based on tripadvisor reviews and was NOT disappointed. The only disappointing part of the day was the weather. It was raining. (The pelting rain on my face while we were on the boat kind of stung and it was hard to hear the guide share information about the surroundings because I had my poncho... More

it's a must not miss it you are on the Canadian side of the fall. my family and I did the boat ride in July the water was cold but on a summer day it is refreshing. the praise is just right. it's more fun then the maid of the mist. if you are not afraid of speed and water.

This was by far the most awesome thing we did when we were there!!! If you get the opportunity to do this, DO IT. I happened to have a GoPro camera with me when I did it and it was well worth it. The ride lasts for about an hour or so and if you do it the same day... More

I was slightly nervous about this trip but my fears were unfounded. We took the drier option and went for the closed boat but our guide opened the windows when she could so we got some great footage from the river. Our guide Sam was wonderful from making sure that you got on the boat safely (my mobility isn't great)... More

We visited Niagara on the Lake in July 2013 and decided to go on a boat trip- which would soak us and be exciting. Luckily the Whirlpool Jet Boats tour had a centre in Niagara on the Lake - which was busy but we could book up easily. We were given a full safety briefing which was done in a... More

This was the best activity hands down from everyone--myself, my husband and my two girls (7 and 10). Amazing ride down the beautiful Niagara River and Niagara Gorge and a thrilling ride down Class 5 rapids. Its not cheap (but nothing in Niagara Falls is) but you can find discount coupons on line or discounts through the tour desk at... More
