The ride was great but I withheld 1 star because a couple showed up 1 min before go time(you were asked to be there 45 min early for check in and the safety talk). They marched right up to the front of the line and took the best seats on the boat! We were really pissed off by that! I don’t care if you’re pretty, rich or a VIP; staff should not allow such behavior! It’s not right for those of us who follow the rules. We complained by the way, to no avail.
The Bomb!!

Amazing experience. Wanted to go a second time!! The guide was helpful although we couldn’t always hear what she was saying on the boat. Overall, we loved it
Great Time 👍🏼

A great experience and way to enjoy Niagara. The guide and captain were very friendly and knowledgeable, the only problem was you couldn’t hear a lot of the information when the boat was moving (too loud). The staff took proper safety precautions in regards to COVID 19 and because only 8 people were allowed in a boat at one time it was very cool having a more private ride. We had a great time and would recommend it to anyone who goes to Niagara.
First time

This was the mine and my husbands first trip to Niagara Falls. I choose this experience thinking that it would be fun. Well you did not disappoint. We had a blast?
Great trip.

Captain Gary and guide Ty were a lot of fun. Make sure you view the video before purchasing - part of our group wasn't in it. Also, if meeting at the Floral Clock, bring a change of clothes with you on the bus down to the dock
