The jet boat experience has been well identified as an excellent family experience and a whole lot of fun. Do not go in expecting to stay dry because you won't and it is not even a little bit wet, you will be soaked so definitely bring a change of clothes, towel and dress appropriately for the weather. I would avoid... More

The jet boat tour was great fun! While not much adrenaline, the rapids are beautiful to see up close, and getting wet makes you feel closer to nature. Do this on a warm day. The jet boat rides is fast and fun. A must do activity.

Whirlpool jet boats are fun and visitors to Niagara love the thrill. The company has just entered into a new venture. Riverboat cruise on the river. I took a group on the sunset cruise last night. Weather was perfect and the sunset was amazing. The Niagara Belle is a welcome addition to Niagara on the Lake. The crew and staff... More

My kids (age 7 & 10) took a Jet Boat tour and LOVED every minute of it! It was a simply spectacular way to enjoy and see the whirlpools up close. We were lucky enough to go on a beautiful, warm day and did not use their ponchos (we wore bathing suits) but would recommend them if it is anything... More

You have a choice between wet boat or jet dome tour and my family chose to do the latter because its cooler. The staff are extremely friendly, knowledgeable and go that extra mile to ensure you get your money's worth. Before the start of the tour, our tour guide Steve provided us with a clear and concise safety orientation before... More

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
