White Water Walk, Niagara Falls

(4.4/5 based on 2,800+ reviews on the web)
Marvel at the trillions of gallons of water powering their way along one of the widest stretches of white water in the world at White Water Walk. Travel down 70 m (229 ft) in an elevator, to a short tunnel leading to the water's edge. A 305 m (1/4 mi) boardwalk arm's length away from the natural phenomenon takes you to two observation points, both with views of the Class 6 whirlpool rapids, which rage ferociously at 48 km/h (30 mph). From here you will learn first-hand how the 410-million-year-old rock layers of the Niagara Gorge were slowly forged thanks to the sheer force of the water.

  • A thrilling view of the white water rapids near the Falls, water churning and moving with great speed. This is more of a summer activity as you dont want to slip and fall on ice and end up part of the...  more »

  • Walking around Niagara Falls and some Fall activities will get you damp and/or wet. So be prepared with a poncho or rainwear. On a hot and steamy day, it's wonderful! This trip is very high on my list...  more »

  • The power of the raging river is amazing, you have to be down beside it to appreciate it. You will probably never see white water rapids like this anywhere else. And (a very few) people tried to swim it!
  • What a beautiful way to end our journey. The sound of the water and intensity of the crashing waves is breathtaking! Luckily we had free tickets from the tour guide, who highly recommended it! We might not have stopped otherwise. Make the stop. It's worth it!😊🌊🌿🍃🌳
  • Welcome centre told us we could buy tickets here. Once you get out of the wego bus, you immediately enter a long line with no signage as to what the line is for, or where to buy tickets. There is no indication that you need tickets before entering the line. After waiting an hour and a half, we were told near the front of the line that we needed tickets, and could buy them in the gift shop (again, no signs, you're just supposed to know this.) I went to get tickets while my buddy held my place in line, but he quickly ran over to stop me as he was told we either needed tickets immediately then or had to return to the back of the 90 minute line again, which has no shade from the sun by the way. Absolute waste of time, np signage anywhere, complete mess of disorganization. Maybe it's nice if you actually get to go in, but our experience was horrible. Buy tickets before you come, regardless of what anyone tells you.
  • See the awesome power of the white water up close. This water is fast when your this close. It's a bit slow to get down there by elevator. But once down there it worth it. A nice shady walk along the river.
  • Great little walk. We got to see some really amazing views and the water was simply gorgeous. Very relaxing to walk and to take in all of the views from the water rushing down toward the whirlpool.
