The Niagara River Cruises actually departs from Gateway Harbor in North Tonawanda. We decided to take a history cruise onboard and were impressed with the skill and professionalism of Captains Robin and Tom as they took us on a cruise and explored the history of the Tonawandas. Although it was a busy Friday evening, they took great precautions to ensure all canal boaters were safe. They also took additional Covid-19 precautions to keep all rails wiped down and hand sanitizers were readily available. Overall, it is worth venturing out on the Erie Canal!

We planned a trip on the Niagara River Cruises on a Friday evening with Joe Bolognese signing all our favorite music. The boat ride along the canal and the mighty Niagara River was outstanding and the biggest treat was the signing by Joe as he entertained us for over 2 hours. It was a great trip and one we will definitely sign up for again!

We went on the Jack Civiletto music cruise on a Thursday evening 6:30 to 8:30pm.

Despite a lite rain when 1st taking off which ended quickly, we had a great time. Jack was great and the captian and crew were very accomodating. Went in the Niagara River intially and then up the canal to Ellicot Island Park and back to Gateway Park.

Loved it!

Every Father’s Day we cruise with Niagara River Cruises. Captain Robin is the best and so careful operating the boat. The entertainment was fantastic as usual. Beautiful day. Many other cruises available I highly recommend them.

The information needs to be verified, about departure times for each trip. But a nice trip around the river and a good time to relax.

Nothing spectacular, but that's what I was looking for, CALM.

Did the poker cruise, fun time.

We had a wonderful time. Robin was great, friendly and very knowledgeable. We met some very nice people. The view was fantastic and I would definitely do this again. Bob answered all our questions also and was very nice. We plan on doing with again so we can book a private cruise with our friends. So much fun!

I would definitely recommend seeing the falls on a Niagara River Cruise as you get really close (and wet!) - it was great fun.

Many visitors confuse this with the Niagara Falls' 'Maid of the Mist' cruise. This is a very different boat cruise on the Niagara river, quite a distance away from the Niagara falls. If you have already done a cruise on the the Potomac (Washington DC) and / or taken a Ellis /Liberty Island cruise (New York), then this cruise in just not worth it. Better to hang around the river and enjoy nature around it than opt for this cruise.
