Get up close to Niagara Falls on this boat tour that cruises from the Canadian side of the border. You’ll feel the power of the massive waterfalls as you motor past American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and Horseshoe Falls—which you can view from either the interior or exterior decks (with free ponchos provided). Enjoy the trip at your convenience with frequent departures, morning through evening.

What to Expect

Meet for this Niagara Falls boat tour on Niagara Parkway.

Once you board the 700-passenger catamaran with upper and lower decks, choose to stay dry inside and view the falls from the glass windows, or to head to the outdoor decks to get splashed by the crashing falls. A poncho is provided to minimize getting wet. Snacks and drinks are available during the cruise. 

Your boat first makes its way through the Niagara Gorge as it heads toward the American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls. For most, the highlight is getting close enough to feel the mist and hear the roar of the powerful Canadian Horseshoe Falls.

Your boat tour ends back at the same spot where it began, where you can purchase souvenirs.

This is a must do experience. The Hornblower takes you near both the American and Canadian Falls in your spiffy red poncho. It was amazing to be that close to the Falls. You have to be ready to get wet (I cannot say I was...More

TIPS: carry on a pair of cheap flip flops so you don't walk around in wet shoes for the rest of the day. Wearing a pair of swim goggles will allow you to "see" in the wettest part of the ride! My glasses were wet...More

We did not book a time we went right up to the booth and got on right away. However, you can also book when you want to go. I think if you go between 12 and 1 pm you wont have shadows and you will have a great view.
