Low Price Guarantee
Get up close to Niagara Falls on this boat tour that cruises from the Canadian side of the border. Feel the power of the massive waterfalls as you motor past American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and Horseshoe Falls—which you can view from either the interior or exterior decks (with free ponchos provided). Enjoy the trip at your convenience with frequent departures, morning through evening.
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.

First off, it's Niagara Falls and a tourist trap so it's busy and not cheap, period. So don't complain when you are there. Did the multi-attraction ticket with the boat, 4D show, behind the falls, bus included, etc. Best way to do it as you...More

You can buy at booth or on the site. you can not reserve a seat...you all walk on in order of showing up. Some people go for the top, some for the front, some for the seats underneath. Nothing is reserved.
