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

By far, one of the most exciting adventure things to do. You drive in a boat with about 60 people at 50 MPH up the Niagara river learning about the history of the area. Then, you take multiple runs through Class 5 rapids. It is thrilling and exhilarating. Oh, by the way, they give you a wet suit because the... More

One of our friend suggested this ride and I am glad we tried this. This was an amazing experience and a must do if you are visiting Niagara. Amazingly easy way to enjoy white water rafting. You will get soaking wet on this ride (they have an option of dome boat but I think getting wet is part of the... More

What a fantastic time! This trip is a must do if visiting Niagara. It was educational and so much fun at the same time. Everyone was so nice and our tour guide was so informative.

I had never done a jet boat tour up river rapids, so was really looking forward to this. As we visited in off seasons, times were limited and we had to book the jet dome boat as that was the only suitable time for us to fit it in. This is great if you want some of the thrills without... More

We went on the domed jet boat since the weather was already too cool in the area and we DID not get wet at all . However, don't bother wasting your time on this lame ride. Yes, at times the boat went fast but there was nothing thrilling or exillerating about this ride. We were expecrting to go near the... More
