Niagara Falls Hornblower Cruises Make History

posted in: Blog | 0

History was made on June 1, 2014, when the first evening cruise in Niagara Falls’ history shoved off from the dock at Hornblower Niagara Cruises.

A whole new way to experience Niagara Falls
For the first time in Niagara Falls’ 168-year history of tour boats voyaging to the base of the Horseshoe Falls, Hornblower Niagara Cruises now offers visitors to Niagara Falls the chance to experience the beauty of Niagara Falls during the illumination hours at night.

Since 1846, tour boats have been ferrying passengers to the Horseshoe Falls and in 2012 Hornblower won the exclusive rights to ferry passengers to the Falls. Hornblower is now the only company on the Canadian side of the Niagara River permitted to operate boat tours of The Falls.

In addition to the traditional daytime Voyage to the Falls, the new tour boat company offers three new cruise options, including:

• The new Sunset Cocktail Cruise beginning every evening at 8:00 p.m.

• The new Falls Illumination Cruise beginning every evening at 9:30 p.m.

• The new Falls Fireworks Cruise, which will take place every Friday and Sunday evenings at 9:30 p.m.

Hornblower Cruises is the only tour boat company operating out of Niagara Falls, Ontario.
