Recommended Experiences in Niagara

What People are Saying

Wow! What a great experience! No need to shower on the day you plan to visit, you'll get soaked (especially on the lower deck)! You do get a poncho, but your shoes will get wet! You'll get to get up close and personal with the falls, traveling right up next to them! Lots of photo ops along the way! The boat ride is about 20 minutes long and it's worth every minute! After the ride, disembark, and and enjoy a drink right at the foot of the falls at the one of cafes and listen to local artists play familiar songs. My family loved this experience and we highly recommend this experience for you, your family, and friends! Enjoy! - Christopher
What a Breathtaking 20min Experience!!! It's an ideal tourist experience for anyone visiting the Majestic Niagara Falls. I've been to the Hornblower cruise a few times now and it's always amazing. Definitely prepare for the adrenaline rush when you get closer the the Horseshoe falls. The views are amazing & the entire journey is extremely beautiful. - Riddhima Chandani
This boat ride was so much fun, and an experience like no other. Expect lots of water, but the ponchos they provide will keep you relatively dry. The loading and unloading process was very efficient, and the ride length was just right. Highly recommended to anyone who wants an up close introduction to the falls. - Greg Barry
