  • If you are able to enter the water, if possible, it is enough time to enjoy the waterfall in front of the falls than I thought to the front head of the boat. I have a good security in front, so I would like to write a waterglasses

  • This small cruise allows us to get closer to the falls and to have the chance to be watered:-) Fortunately they provide the poncho... This allows us to see how impressive the water flow is and the view is very nice.

  • You have to do this if you go to Niagara falls. It is by far the best way to experience them. Stay inside the boat if you don't wanna get soaked but getting soaked is part of the fun of it
  • Must enjoy. Nice cruse ride with mist of Niagara Fall. Going very near to hours shoe Fall. Check cruse schedule before planning your trip. Everyone will get rain coat so that mist won’t make clothes wet. It’s very difficult to take pictures due to mist. Its better to enjoy view and mist instead of taking pictures. It’s usually crowded, and wait too.
  • Prepare to get very wet (even with the pancho). We had an amazing time on the Hornblower as did my kids and grandparents. The staff was very friendly and there were no bad spots to see the falls. It is a must do on the Canadian side! I can now cross this off of my list ✔
  • It was fantastic! It was really fun and I think that had to do with the fact that we got express passes to go past the big line ups for the attractions because we were going on a tour. If I’d have another chance to visit and go onto the cruises, I’d definitely suggest it to someone else to see because it’s a once in a life time experience
  • If you only have time to do one thing in Niagara Falls, this is the one to do. The line may be a bit long, but each boat can hold about 700 passengers, so the queue moves faster than you would think. There is still a bit of a wait though, so bring comfortable shoes, water, and something to keep away the sun if you're visiting on a hot day. The cruise itself lasts about 20 minutes, and you get up close and personal with the Falls. Don't think the poncho isn't necessary - though there's mist coming from the Falls, you will get soaked. Put the poncho on as soon as you board the boat! Oh, and keep any electronics/valuables in your pockets - you don't want those to get wrecked! Hornblower was so good, when it was done I wanted to do it again! The only thing keeping me from doing so was paying again, and waiting in the line again. Do the cruise as soon as you get to the Falls, that way you can dry off while walking around before going back to your car or tour bus.
