Hornblower Niagara Cruises

The experience

This boat attraction offers the opportunity to explore the Falls from right up close while riding aboard the Hornblower Niagara Cruise line where you’ll be close enough to actually feel the mist on your skin.


The entrance is located at 5920 Niagara Parkway in Niagara Falls, Ontario - near the base of Clifton Hill, on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. This boat ride will take you on a journey through the Niagara River passing by the Falls.


A trip to Niagara Falls is not complete without a signature ride on the Hornblower Niagara Cruises (formerly operated by Maid of the Mist). Whether you’re traveling withas a family, with your significant other or with friends, this attraction is a “must do” while visiting the city.

Experience the rush of the refreshing cooling mist on your skin as you take a 20-minute magical ride along the Niagara River. Hornblower Niagara Cruises depart from the Canadian side of the Falls and passes by the American Falls, Canadian Horseshoe Falls and Great Gorge.

It should be noted that this attraction is wheelchair accessible.

* Thanks to our classic Canadian winters, this cruise operates seasonally. While exact dates vary annually, it typically runs from May until late November.
