Get ready to visit Canada’s ‘must-do’ signature attraction – Hornblower Niagara Cruises – and take home the ultimate souvenir: a memory.
Opens for the 2020 season in May
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.
For a later-at-night moment you’ll only find here, there’s nothing quite like a cruise and the sight of exploding fireworks over Niagara Falls to make your visit memorable. Our 40-minute Falls Fireworks Cruise features starry skies, panoramic skyline views, stunning illuminations, and, of course, fireworks that light up the sky—and your family’s faces. 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.
