  • 90$ for a 20 or so minute ride up the gorge. If you have never done it, it is fun, but like everything else in the city very expensive.  more »

  • A must do when visiting Niagara Falls! The walk to the boat begins with a series of ramps that take you to an elevator which takes you to the area where you receive your poncho. Then another series of ramps to the boat. The crowd was very light on our Tuesday 5pm cruise. We walked right on board with space available on the bottom rail. It was a fun exhilarating ride; about a 15-20 minute cruise. There is a food vendor and pavilion with tables and seats on the property. Bathrooms on property are very small with only 4 or 5 stalls, it was a long wait even though the area was not that crowded. A tip...the part of the boat that gets the most wet is the front and bottom right, based on the way the boat turns into the falls on it's way back. That side of the boat is in the falls the longest. Even on the bottom right center we got pretty wet but the ponchos did a good job keeping our clothes dry. Tie your poncho tight to keep it on your head if you wish to keep your hair dry. It is very windy when you get close.
  • So beautiful! This was a once in a lifetime experience and it was super fun. My family and I purchased our tickets, waited in line, (maybe 10-15 minutes?) put on the ponchos, and got onto the boat. We stood on the second level, at the front of the boat, which was a very nice place to take good photos and see the falls clearly. We did get wet, took some amazing pictures and got to keep the cute ponchos. Our boat stayed in the mist for a really long time, which was surprising! Definitely recommend!
  • Had a great time! I wish I could have done the day cruise also but the evening cruise was wonderful. Amazing to see and feel the size and power of the Falls from below on the river. Highly recommend this to anyone visiting the area. I had an enjoyable day in the area and this was the highlight for me.
  • When you buy your ticket you think that 40 minutes for the night cruise is better for your dollar than the 15 minute day cruise, but it does start to drag a bit once you pass by the falls the first time because you're just sailing around the same area over and over. BUT once the fireworks start it's worth it because you realize how amazing it is to be watching fireworks on a boat in the centre of a natural wonder. And don't forget to do some stargazing. We could see Saturn, Jupiter, Venus, Antares, Orion...truly magical.
  • A must do when you are visiting. We went on Friday recently. We waited until just after 3:30PM to go get tickets and go on the boat ride. Lines moved quickly. So enjoyable to see both the American Falls and the Horseshoe Falls. A beautiful day for it. Will definitely do this again.
