Fly with Niagara Helicopters
Located on Victoria Avenue, in Niagara Falls, Niagara Helicopters has been in the flying business for over 50 years. The flights are in operation daily from 9 a.m. till sunset.
Experienced pilots & staff ensure a smooth, safe & enjoyable ride. No prior reservations are necessary, you can walk in for a ride. Airbus H130 helicopters, that seat up to 7 passengers each, are used for the flights.
Once you climb in the helicopter, the staff buckles you and the other flyers securely inside. The helicopter takes off for an exhilarating 10-minute ride.
That feeling of excitement as the flight ascends can only be matched by the incredible sights around you.

You can see the entire landscapes from a whole new perspective, giving you a complete picture.
If it is a clear sunny day, look through the large windows of the helicopter for panoramic views as far as the Toronto skyline and Lake Erie.
Pretty green landscapes become visible as you pass over the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens and School of Horticulture. Follow the route of the Niagara River as it swirls and flows during its journey at the Whirlpool rapids, the churning whirlpool and the Rainbow Bridge. You can also get a fantastic view of the 775 foot Skylon Tower that looks impressively tall as well as the scenic landscape and colourful gardens of the Queen Victoria Park.
You can put on your headset to listen to the pre-recorded commentary (available in several languages) about the sights.
American, Bridal Veil & Horseshoe Falls’
You will soar above the American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls and move on to the glorious vision of the cascading Horseshoe Falls.
Seen from above, the Falls looks even more magical as water flows over its crescent-shaped edge plunging into the river below. You might even spot a rainbow or two! It is a mesmerising sight, one that you can take photographs of, along with the other spectacular views during the ride.
From here, the helicopter makes its way back to the helipad, and you can always rewind your wonderful adventure in your mind for days afterwards.

- On-site Gift Shops
- Professional Photo Services
- Snack Bar
