“Tips to Enjoy your Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

The operation is very smooth; we were poncho-ed and on the boat in no time. Very cool to see the falls close up. A few tips: We thought we could keep our tennis shoes dry, but no way. Wear plastic shoes/flip flops, but if you plan to walk up alongside the falls later (you can do that after you get off the boat), just be careful of your footing on the slippery steps. On the boat, you WILL get wet. The poncho will keep your body dry, but I had so much water on my glasses that I couldn't see, and all the water made the sunscreen on my face run into my eyes, so then I REALLY couldn't see! So ditch the glasses, and apply the sunscreen after:) Great gift store.

“Got Close and Wet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

WOW what an experience! You get so close to the falls that you hear and feel the power. Well worth the money for an experience that you will not forget. Advice, you will get wet and smell like a river afterwards, so plan accordingly.

The tour is a must during any Niagara Falls visit. Beautiful views! Breathtaking. The views are unreal. You get a panoramic view of the falls up close and personal.

“Amazing.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

Its hard to get your head around the size and scale of this amazing natural wonder. But this ride gives you the opportunity to try close up and personal. You can be drenched or just watch in awe, it all depends on what you want. I got great pictures and video from the deck by dodging the mist. The constant roar is also a reminder this is a one of a kind natural wonder. A must do trip!!

“Its so worth it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

What an amazing way to see the falls! I can see why it has been entertaining people for decades. The boat gets you so close to the falls that will absolutely get wet if you don't wear the poncho that they give you. You get very close to the base of the falls and can hear the water thunder as it hits bottom. Its so cool. Check it out.
