So much fun!! I went with my twin 7 year olds and had a great time. The kids were amazed that we went into the whirlpool that we had seen from the Aero Car the day before. Guide was great at telling us what to expect. I would not recommend it to anyone with back problems, we had to turn... More

We booked at the office on the day and spent some time in niagara on the lake before the tour. We knew we would get wet, but we were completely soaked by the end of the trip. So glad we had a change of clothes. The tour was well organised and felt safe throughout. The boys loved it and would... More

How fun was this?!!! I was reluctant to go because I am not a big water lover or activities in the water. But I was with a group of 26 family members and we went on the Jet Boat. It starts off slow and it is a nice cruise with a very entertaining staff. Then as you get towards the... More

Well organized operation. Group safety and prep meeting before boarding along with some commercial picture taking. Guides tell you what to expect and some local history of the forts on both sides of the river mouth. Start slow through the marinas and power plant dams then the pace picks up - quickly! Some fancy piloting to splash you down a... More

This is an incredible ride. You do several passes through some class 5 rapids and get yourself thoroughly drenched. You are provided with a very good quality poncho, but it does little to keep you dry. Everyone looked like a (happy) drowned rat after the ride. If it is a hot day I wouldn't bother with the poncho, but we... More

This is a winner. Great staff and well run. A true adventure with a majestic view of the lower gorge. Good for teens and adults. You Will Get Wet!

This boat ride is a must for those who want to add an element of adventure to any vacation or get-away weekend. Relatives of mine had been on this tour and highly recommended it, so my girlfriend and I decided to give it a try. The operation is very well run - the staff is courteous, and everything proceeded on... More

This information relax us prior to the thrill. We first try Rapid class1, and were wet by the cold and refreshing water of... More

This was one of the high lights of our trip to the Niagara falls area. We were soaked from head to toe and it was all worth it. Our tour guide was very funny and informative. We not only got a thrill ride be we got a guided tour of the canyon and lots of information on area history. We... More
