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.

'Hornblower' is the ship that cruises to the edge of both the American and Horseshoe Falls from the Canadian side. The tours depart often, and most of the boats are packed with tourists. There is a bit of walking to get down to the dock,...More

You can only access this one from the Canadian side. I think that the tour that operates from the U.S. side is called the Maiden of the Midst.

The Hornblower serves the Canadian side and the Maid of the Midst serves the American side. They split this up a few years back. That way if you embark on the American side, you do not need a passport.
