Reversing Falls Jet Boat. The Reversing Falls Jet Boat has 20-minute thrill rides in the heart of the Reversing Rapids ($41.95). Be prepared for a wild ride and don't think for a second that the yellow slickers they supply will keep you dry—having a change of clothes in your car is an excellent idea. Size restrictions apply to the jet boat and bubble, and times depend on the tides. The company also offers more sedate one-hour sightseeing tours ($41.95) along the rapids and up the river (departing instead from Market Square when there's a cruise ship in dock) June to mid-October, 10 am to dusk. 100 Fallsview Ave., Saint John, NB, E2K 1C2. 506/634-8987 or 888/634-8987. www.jetboatrides.com. June-mid-Oct.
Saint John Adventures. This is the place to go for zip-lining across the Reversing Rapids. 50 Fallsview Ave., Saint John, NB, E2K 1C2. 506/634-9477 or 877/634-9477. www.saintjohnadventures.ca. Late May-Oct., daily 9-dusk.
