This past weekend we decided to take the helicopter flight over Niagara Falls. With visitors to the area down by a huge percentage without the usual international tourists, we took advantage of seeing our national treasure at a more relaxed and leisurely pace. Traffic was at a minimum and parking plentiful. I would say the majority of people were obeying and following social distancing and masking precautions. Businesses were very welcoming and eager to make everyone feel safe. With all this in mind, we went to take a flight in the helicopter. We only had to wait about a half hour and were very impressed by the cleaning procedures followed by the staff. The flight itself was a joy. Our only criticism was that even though we phoned ahead and talked to staff about the procedures, they failed to tell us that we would need to bring our own earphones and a smartphone to use the audio system in the helicopter. No earphones could be provided due to Covid restrictions. We would have enjoyed hearing the audio commentary while on the flight.

Bird's eye view of the Falls and surrounding area. Friendly and efficient staff. We were able to take some great photographs. The aerial perspective gives you an entirely different view of the falls! Recommended activity!

Well worth it. Great views of the Falls from the sky. Very smooth and slick operation. Not too much waiting time. Recorded commentary in the helicopter was good. Took the bus out to the airfield and back.

Our tour guide offered us the opportunity of the helicopter ride while travelling by bus from Toronto. We decided to go ahead as we also had a discount and the flight was after we had gone into the falls by boat. When we arrive no one was waiting so we were able to go up immediately. The helicopter normally seats 6 but it was just us and the pilot. We had the front seats and the views were awesome. We had a really clear sunny November afternoon but the sun was low so blinding sometimes to take photo’s. You are not up long probably 10/15 minutes but it’s an experience you will never forget. It was great seeing the falls from above and below in one day trip.
