We loved watching the fireworks in the boat. Some of the things we were not that happy about were the odor coming from the water (not pleasant), and how far we were from the niagara falls. The distance might of been due to safety standards but it was just a bit too far from us.

The boat took us close to both of the falls and it was so amazing to see the falls lit up at night with changing colors. We were on the top deck around the middle and we hardly got wet. The fireworks were fantastic also. A great adventure to see and do

October 14 was the last day of the nighttime fireworks display for the year and though it was a bit chilly it was worth it! The boat did not come as close to the horseshoe falls so we didn’t get that wet.
