Perhaps the most invigorating means of experiencing Niagara is via an open jet boat excursion into the watery chaos of the Niagara Whirlpool. Not for the faint of heart, open tours guarantee the prospect of getting thoroughly soaked. All participants must be older than age six, taller than 44 inches, and in good health. For the marginally meeker visitor, closed or domed jet boat tours are also available.
Needless to say, a particularly grand panorama of the falls can be had from the air and there is a wide array of options to choose from. Multiple versions of helicopter tours offer a birds-eye view, ranging from shorter, 20-minute flybys to extended trips complete with stopovers at regional wineries.
An unusually vivid contrast can be experienced by visitors who opt for a journey from the streets of New York City through the beautiful mountains of scenic upstate New York to the mists of Niagara. Many tours spread this round-trip excursion out over several days’ time and stop off at regional places of interest every few hours along the way.
We had such a wonderful time and would highly recommend this trip. Our tour guide, Eduardo, was an angel and he made our trip so memorable and fabulous! He not only showed us where to go but also what to watch for and treated my 70 year old mother like a princess. Even though our flight was delayed due to weather, it couldn't erase the fantastic memories that we made and the happiness we felt all day. We can't thank you enough for making this trip to New York so special.
