There's no chance at all you will escape dry. No worries, they lend you water shoes and you can leave your regular shoes by the dock safely. They have changing rooms to change into swimsuits before and out of them after. Plus a gift shop if you forgot to bring clothes. Because you'll get soaked plunging into the rapids but... More

Everything just about. Staff, boats, water, speed, rapids - all awesome and well worth the cost. Brilliant time and would do it again for sure. The only downside was parking. No guarantee that you can get parked easily or near to where you need to be so best get there a little earlier to be sure (although the 45 mins... More

you need to do this if your family is adventurous....You'll want your kids to be over 100lbs so they can sit nearer to the front, but all seats get ridiculously wet....The kids had so much fun, don't miss this, we bought our passes to include a Niagara attractions pass and it was extremely good value....Awesome, awesome, awesome

My 4th time doing this, and if I wasn't getting a little old, I would probably do it another 20 times. My husband took me for my 50th b-day, and I loved it, so we went back when I was 59 to take the grandkids with us, we took 7 of them, the youngest was on 2 and too young..... More

My husband and I visited Niagara on the Lake last weekend and were so excited to take the whirlpool jet boat tour. Unfortunately I was sick with a cold so we decided it was best to take the the closed boat to avoid me getting any sicker. It was quite an exhilarating experience as we love seeking adventure and being... More

The tour was given to us as a gift, wasn't sure what to expect. We were told to try and sit up front. It was simply amazing. Waves were huge and we got totally drenched. The tour guide was funny and gave a brief history of the river and the attractions in Canada and the US side. The tour was... More

This was indeed an exciting experience. Don't go if you do not want to get wet. This is a jet boat that takes you up the Niagara river to ride through the white waters. The commentary was good. So this tour was fun, racing along at high speed getting absolutely soaked. The tour lasts one hour at a cost of... More

Four of us took the open air whirlpool jet tour. You are warned that you will get wet from head to toe and this proved true. The ride was fun, though none of us could understand what the tour leader was saying when he stood in the front of the boat, so we missed out on learning the history of... More

Our family was on a short vacation. We had seen Niagra Falls, both walking and riding the boat, but this is a great way to see a different kind of Niagra. The jet boat is very exciting and a lot of fun. You need to be ready to get WET! The day we went actually and a thunder storm and... More

My husband and I went in August 2014 and it was so much fun. We booked online and we purchased the USB stick, which gave us pictures and video. The video is alright nothing special. The tour itself lasted about an hour. The rapids are awesome! To experience the power of the Niagara river was exhilarating! You must bring a... More
