Went with the kids this time now that they are tall enough. Be sure to check on this before making reservations! It was an overcast day so all the splashing got the kids a little chilly. But what a wild ride! The kids still loved it, and my wife and I loved it even though we had done it before.... More

I'm 70 ,don't remember ever having such a great time anytime . Grannie took our granddaughter out on the boat , claimed it was for the girl , but... More

This was something my partner (Adrenaline junkie) wanted to do during our 4 day stay at Niagara on the lake, I on the other hand was not keen and in fact dreading it!!! After our safety talk I was even more nervous and told my partner while we collected our safety gear to sit towards the back of the boat,... More

If you take the open boat, you will get wet, very wet. The guides are to be commended for working very hard at entertaining the passengers during the longish section to and from the rapids. Once at the rapids and the whirlpool, the boat goes up and down the rapids area three plus times from slightly different angles so that... More

It's expensive. It's a long drive. It's a power boat. It's open water. You arrive and they give you a pep talk and then down to business. I loved the line if you're wearing a toupee today's your day to see if the glue works. I was a nervous wreck. it was this or a rollercoaster. By the end we... More

We did the dome boat. It have done the open and the dome was just as fun. It was a cold day so there is no way I wanted to get wet! Ashley our guide was sweet and seemed to enjoy what she was doing. A must do if your in the area!

:We actually went about three years ago in the heat of summer, but there's no option to select earlier dates! You can get the jet boats from Canada or Lewiston, NY. The boats out of NOL give you a longer river ride, which is really nice. They take you down the river at a moderate clip and then unleash the... More

We were really looking forward to this boat trip. Its expensive. We weren't too happy with their very limited gift shop. Bathrooms clean. Lockers provided. Sitting outside in the hot sun wasn't fun either. Limited bleached seating, otherwise you stand, virtually no shade. You get a rather typical, boring lecture. Walk to the dock 1/2 block. Get your life vest,... More

Disappointing!! Worst tour. Extremely boring, repetitive, travel so far away to get there from Niagara Falls, didn't even make it into the falls. Safety brief was terrible. Waste of a day really we had to book he horn lower tour after this so we could actually experience what we came here for.
