Niagara Falls, Canada: Voyage to the Falls Boat Tour in Canada

Best Seller
Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Hop aboard to make your way to an experience no one ever forgets. Hornblower Niagara Cruises incredible 20-minute Voyage to the Falls Boat Tour is the only boat tour in Niagara Falls, Canada (please note this cruise sails from Niagara Falls in Canada; when travelling from the U.S. please ensure you have proper passports/documentation before purchasing).

Sail with Hornblower to get up close and personal with the Canadian Horseshoe Falls, American Falls, and the breathtaking Niagara 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 illumination of the Falls.

Plus, your ticket admission includes a ride on the brand new Hornblower Niagara Funicular where you'll see the Niagara Gorge like never before!

With mobile tickets, simply scan your phone for direct entry onto the cruise.
  • See the waterfalls up close on this Niagara Falls tour
  • Upper and lower decks for panoramic views  
  • Stay dry inside the boat or minimize wetness on the outer deck with a poncho
  • Multiple tour times throughout the day for your convenience
  • Mobile ticketing means there’s no forgetting a paper voucher at home
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.

I highly recommend doing this at least once. You WILL be soaked when you get off but it's so worth it.

This was a great experience. You will get wet but it’s worth it. They take you close to the base of the falls and you can feel the power of the falls.

There is an elevator down to the boat so a walker should work, however on the boat I would think you would need to stay on the bottom deck. There are pretty steep stairs going to the top deck and it is pretty pitchy in... More

I don't know if there is a price difference but I bought tickets online and avoided the long line at the ticket window.

We stayed on the Canadian side and walked across the bridge to see the US views. Enjoyed Goat Island. Both sides are great.
