We are not usually very adventurous, but we decided to try this. It was so much fun! I would recommend that you wear your swimsuit, because you are going to get drenched!

We all got soaking wet so bring a change of clothes, including a towel. We were a bit concerned about the youngest thinking the boat/water may be too rough. We held on and... More

Thrill seekers rejoice. Well run, friendly staff AWESOME boats. Be prepared to get wet. Not wet....drowned! Total blast from leisurely cruise up river until the rapids where the fun begins. Cruise director was fun and safety oriented. Don't visit Niagara without a trip on the jet boats.

This trip is great for any age. HY was an awesome tour guide. He made everyone comfortable and had a great sense of humor. A class 5 rapid is so exciting and the captain did a great job of getting everyone soaked no matter where you sat. Would definitely do this again.
