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.

We loved this boat tour of the falls. It was really cool to be up close and really see the magnificence of the falls. I would say this is well worth the money.

Eeh ... Not all its cracked up to be ...

This was my first trip to Niagara Falls. Bought the adventure pass plus package in Canada and the Hornblower Cruise was included. First, you are corralled like cattle to wait for your turn on the boat. They shove as many people as they can onto...More

The timing of this tour is right...the ship takes you to the edge of the Horseshoe Falls and the American Falls, and it's just enough. Great fun!
