Full description
Marvel at spectacular views of Niagara Falls from the Canadian side of the border. Your half-day tour includes the world-famous American Maid of the Mist boat ride and an unbeatable aerial view of the Falls, River, and Gorge from atop Skylon Tower.

In summer, you'll set sail aboard the Maid of the Mist. Journey into the heart of the Falls to hear the thundering roar of thousands of gallons of water and feel the mist on your face. Then, travel across the international border into Canada. During winter, instead of Maid of the Mist, you'll discover the Falls' awesome power with admission to 'Journey Behind the Falls', at the base of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls.

Marvel at panoramic views of the Falls from atop Skylon Tower and visit key viewing sites like Table Rock and Terrapin Point. You'll have the opportunity to see the Horseshoe Falls, American Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls during your tour. See how the churning waters of the Falls carved out the awesome Niagara River Gorge.

Your tour also includes Niagara Parks, Goat Island, Luna Island, Three Sister Islands, American Observation Tower, Prospect Point, Niagara Falls State Park, Niagara River, Floral Showhouse, Dufferin Islands, Toronto Power House, Raging Rapids, Old Scow, International Water Control Dam, Water Intakes, Queen Victoria Park, Sir Harry Oakes Garden Theatre, Giant Whirlpool, Whirlpool Aero Car, Whirlpool Golf Course, Niagara Glen, Hydro-electric Power Plants, Niagara Escarpment, Botanical Gardens, and the Floral Clock.

During the off-season period (early November to mid-April*), the Journey Behind the Falls or Hornblower Niagara Cruise subject to availability replaces the Maid of the Mist boat ride.  Attractions are seasonal and operate subject to weather conditions. *Dates are approximate and dependent on winter/ice conditions.
