All the pleasure was for us! The cold weather should take you compared to Florida where it's still hot by this time of the year. But I'm sure it was worth it! Hoping to see you again next year! The communication team

Had a good three hour trip on the big boat. That was cold enough, wouldn't have wanted to be on the Zodiacs. Bad weather and visibility but saw quite a few whales so very pleased. It got a bit crowded inside when everyone wanted to...More

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your experience aboard our Grand River boat. The fall weather actually makes the passengers warm up inside, which can make the boat seem more crowded than it actually is. It is for this reason that you...More

Brochures and ads for this trip appeared to have great view of falls. The boat turns around pretty far away from falls, not even on near side of bridge. We were there for 2 days, otherwise boat trip was good, but big let down when...More
