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.

As advertised

Prepare to get a little wet on top deck. Was everything I expected it to be. PRepurchase of tickets was great option. Go as early as possible to avoid line wait. We went around 10 am and wait was very minimal.

As promised, you will get wet!

Boarded the 9:30am boat. Even though it was a cloudy rainy day the falls are worth getting close to. The spray was intense. The whole adventure took about an hour from ticketing, to waiting to board, to the boat trip itself. Glad we caught an...More

Insensitive treatment of guest with physical disability

I booked a Hornblower Niagara cruise in mid-July with a friend who has cerebral palsy. When we arrived at the last checkpoint before boarding the boat, I could see that the boat was nearly ready to depart, and it was crowded. Normally, this would not...More

Don't miss out on this experience!

It may detour you seeing the long lines of people, but they move you through in usually 30 minutes or less even when the line extends way past the official stantions entrance. We absolutely LOVED our Hornblower cruise! It was amazing to get so close...More

I didn't feel cheated by the length of time. It wasn't a long time but plenty to really get a sense of how cool it is to see the falls from that perspective. I do not think there are other tour options that are any longer.
