VOYAGE TO THE FALLS BOAT TOUR

Hop aboard and make your way to an experience no one ever forgets – the Voyage to the Falls Boat Tour. Get up close and personal with the American Falls, Canadian Horseshoe Falls, and breathtaking Great Gorge – and the thundering roar, awesome power and amazing mist that come along with these natural wonders.

Or ride after sunset for a light-mist experience (that’s still heavy on the magic) with the illumination of the Falls. Plus, buy a ticket online and access the one-of-a-kind Hornblower Niagara Funicular with panoramic views of the world-famous Falls as you travel to our Riverside Patio and boarding area.

Awesome way to see the falls, we got utterly soaked on those parts not covered by a poncho, but it was totally worth it. The funicular view was also great, and the queues were really well organized...

This was a great way to get up close to the falls. Be prepared, you will get soaked! My family of 4 really enjoyed it.
