Fantastic! Wet! A very pleasant boat ride till you get up to the lower rapids...the boat literally dives into the waves several times and the waves literally cover the boat....the water drains away quickly and its lots of fun! Boat goes all the way to the whirlpool where it stops so you can see it. Then plays in the rapids again on the return...the ride itself is very gentle, not what i expected, you are told each time you are going to go into a wave so you are always prepared before being soaked. The boat also does some cool 360 degree turns that are fun, worth the money for all of us!

We did the open jetboat June 21 and it was the thrill of a lifetime!! We left from their site in Niagara on the Lake. The first 10 minutes are a placid scenic ride from Niagara on the Lake at the edge of Lake Ontario down to the Whirlpool, and then it gets wild! Think of shooting the rapids in a big speedboat and you get the picture. What an awesome experience! But not for the faint of heart! Although they issue slickers and rubber booties, if you sit in the front 4 rows of the boat you will get totally soaked -- as the boat cuts through the class 4 and 5 rapids the water cascades in right over your head!! Bring a complete change of clothes as they have changing rooms you can use after the trip. For a little less drenching experience you can sit in the last 4 rows, but you will still enjoy the thrills. They also offer a closed boat trip in which you do stay dry.
The staff was courteous, professional, and fun!!!
They also take pictures of you during the rapids run that you can purchase at the end of the experience. We gave this one five stars!!!
