Beginning on the Canadian side of the falls, this exciting tour travels along the Niagara Gorge, past the American and Bridal Veil Falls to the base of the powerful Horseshoe Falls.

  • Enjoy panoramic views from a double-decker catamaran
  • Cruise along the Niagara Gorge and admire views of American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls

Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Climb on board a state-of-the-art, 700-passenger catamaran cruise ship to begin a Voyage to the Falls like no other. There are two tiers on the ship — an upper and lower deck — plus an enclosed area that’s covered by glass, safe from the elements. 

Pick a spot and get ready for the fun to begin.

The ship will drift into the Niagara Gorge before cruising past the American and Bridal Veil Falls. Get the poncho ready because it’s now evident things are going to get really wet for those on the ship’s outer decks — the edge of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. Feel the cool spray and the powerful sounds of the water. This is the experience of a lifetime.

Voyage to the Falls is only a half-hour tour, but drinks and snacks are available inside the enclosed part of the ship for those who are interested. Additionally, there’s a souvenir shop at the landing area, with waterproof accessories to buy beforehand, or keepsakes to purchase afterward.

Please note: The Voyage to the Falls boat tour replaces the Maid of the Mist tour, which is now headquartered on the American side of Niagara Falls.

We had a very lovely time onboard. Lucky for us the weather was excellent. The ship took us really close to the horseshoe falls and if not for the ponchos we would have been soaked! We loved the experience.

Great fun on this boat tour. Very happy to see that they were taking great precautions due to the Covid virus. They limited the boat to 100 people instead of the usual 600, we were happy that there was probably only 50 people on the boat with us. Its quite an amazing experience getting really close up to the powerful waterfall. Fab
