Niagara Falls Helicopter Tour
Experience Niagara Falls like never before, from an entirely new perspective, on this scenic 10-minute helicopter journey. Enjoy the incredible sight of the American, Bridal Veil and Canadian Horseshoe Falls from high above, along with a spectacular view of the many landmarks along the way, like the Niagara River and Whirlpool Rapids. Each passenger receives an individual headset that provides interesting and educational commentary about the falls during the flight. The view is unforgettable, but bring a camera to capture the moment.
What to Expect
You can see Niagara Falls from eye level on the street. You can climb a tower and see it from above. You can even take a boat right to the edge of the falls. But nowhere else can you experience a view of Niagara Falls from the sky like this one, on board a helicopter flying high above one of the greatest natural wonders of the world.

Begin this Niagara Falls helicopter tour at the heliport at the end of Victoria Avenue across the street from the Whirlpool Rapids in Niagara Falls. Meet the tour’s expert pilot and climb on board a 7-passenger Airbus H130 helicopter, featuring windows big enough to take great pictures.

Buckle up and get ready for lift off. Then enjoy the view from above all of Niagara’s natural and manmade attractions, flying directly over top of the American and Bridal Veil Falls, then along the curve of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. Look for the Whirlpool Aero Car and Rapids, the Sir Adam Beck Hydroelectric Generating Stations, the Rainbow Bridge, Queen Victoria Park, the Skylon Tower and more.

Throughout the tour, listen to taped commentary about the sites through a special headset.

Hi Can't say for certain as it probably depends on the weather conditions. It would probably be worth a phone call. Number on web site is 905-357-5672. Enjoy the experience James
