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.

You have to do this cruise

You spend longer standing in a queue than on the boat itself but the mad exhilaration of getting up close to Niagara Falls surrounded by dozens of other people all in pink plastic ponchos is worth the wait.

Did you really do Niagara if you didn’t do the Cruise?

This is a must! Well worth the money you pay and there isn’t a bad spot anywhere on the boat. Truly an amazing experience, and if you miss out on these, then your missing out on the best part of Niagara Falls.

So much fun!

After walking along the roadway and seeing the spectacular Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side, we decided to get a closer look. We are so glad we spent the extra money and took the time to take this boat ride. It was well worth it....More

Wear waterproof mascara people, because this is a MUST see.

Because mine got in my eyes and stung the crap out of me for a good five minutes! Thankfully, the tour was long and thorough enough to make up for my own blunder. I did not expect to get that close. I cannot emphasize how...More

It would be hard to find a parking spot close to boat. Your hotel is only a 20 minute walk (all downhill on the way), or you could park in one of the parking lots along Victoria Ave and get there in 10 mins. All uphill back... More

The actual starting time is dictated by ice in the river. Their website gave their expected opening date which was after we would have left Niagara but after a few unexpectedly warm days they were able to open early and we... More

Yes. We were there in October. Just go online and check, before you go. We did it from the Canadian side. Views are better from this side. The boat leaves from the American and Canadian side. Just get your tickets at their... More
