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

We ran across this hidden gem while finding things to do outside of the city of Niagara Falls. This was easily the most fun we had during our trip; it was also the wettest I've ever gotten without jumping into a body of water! Definitely bring a change of clothes, because you'll get soaked no matter where you sit (they... More

What a ride! Worth every penny. If you want to get SOAKED- sit on the LEFT SIDE, 2nd or 3rd row from front and hang on tight! Put your camera away when the rapids get rough. Our boat repeatedly went back for bonus runs through the best rapids. Not for the faint of heart. Bring a set of dry clothes.... More

I make sure I do the whirlpool jet tour every year. It is a hidden gem. It is so much fun. It is beautiful and educational as well. You cannot come to Niagara without doing the whirlpool jet tour!

This is not typically the thing I do but my kids wanted to go. I was absolutely amazed how much fun this was. Be warned you will get totally soaked. That means every square inch of your glorious body. This includes your wallet, your cell phone or your purse. Having a state of those cautions you really should do this... More

A great way to have fun, with a little adrenaline. It wasn't long enough!!! They could have done 360 a little more often on the way to and from the Whirlpool area.

This was the first of our many anniversary adventures and we had a blast! Staff was very friendly and reassuring. Our tour guide was awesome and could tell us all about the different facilities/plants along the way. What a fun way to get wet. They made sure everyone was soaked...including the children. Safe ride!!!

So, you basically get soaked on this whole trip no matter where you sit. We even wore extra rain gear (than what they provided), and the water just dumped down our jackets. This is a very fun ride, like a roller coaster on water. You fly down the river at over 50 MPH, I forgot how fast we went. You... More

My partner and his friend really enjoyed this and said it was really fun. You get soaked but that is the whole point. Great way to see the Rapids and is worth the money as you are out for a good hour 😀
