Took my grandchildren on the Jet Boat. For the young folks, it was the best attraction they had been on 'anywhere'. I had been on the attraction several years ago and enjoyed it just as much this time. This is suitable for young and old. It is not cheap, but worth it.

My group sat in the front row and expected what was going to happen. If you read their website you will understand the attraction. The three of us enjoyed the experience and yes it was a rough ride but that is what we paid for. Don't go on it if you don't expect that type of ride. Also do not... More

A great experience!! We went as a group of 10 and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The food was excellent and was served as a buffet. The paddle boat cruises from the dock near Queenston bridge and heads towards the Welland canal. So peaceful! we enjoyed the onboard entertainment. Next time we will definitely book the afternoon wine tasting tour!

Try and go on a warm day: the water can be cold! Well set-up tour: quick safety lecture, an organized suiting up with water gear and you're off!

This is a neat thing to do if you are in the Niagara Falls area if you want to experience the niagara river's rapids first hand. The staff was really cool and they also gave background information on a lot of history and natural information about the area we were boating in. Overall it was really fun and I would... More

The B&B we were in recommended that it was a fun thing to do to cool off and enjoy the landscape. The view was phenomenal, the tour guide was very informative and we learn a lot about the geography and history of the region. When you enter the rapids the feeling is breath taking, but don't leave your mouth open,... More

If you're in the Niagara Falls area and looking for the ultimate rush, we highly recommend this company. The tour takes you up the river into class four rapids on a flat bottom jet boat. Once you hit the rapids, the boat captain takes you into multiple 360 degree spins. Beyond that there are times in which they spin the... More

It probably would have been more exciting but we elected to take the covered boat. Being an aircraft mechanic I was impressed with the capabilities of the boat. We shot under, through, and over rapids. The ride was exciting and I managed to take a few good pictures. I will do it again if I pass through the area again.

The jet boat from Niagra on the Lake is an experience not to be missed. You will get very wet so were cloths that will dry quick, we got no ponchos so we got as wet as you can get sitting in a boat knee deep in river water. It was a blast and the video was worth the extra... More
