As with many things in life changes happen. Hornblower Cruises now operate the Canadian side of the "mist" boat rides. Maid of the Mist operates on the US side of the falls.

Hornblower cruises did a superb job in creating a memorable experience. Their boats were clean, well maintained, and had experienced staff operating them. We had a blast visiting the close proximity of the falls. Without question this event is a Niagara Falls must do attraction. Go, have fun and make memories!!

We did an afternoon Hornblower cruise and walked right on to a boat after putting on the green ponchos that were included in the tickets. The ride was quick 15-minutes, a bit windy, and definitely WET! We had a blast, and if you can open your eyes long enough to see through the sprays of mist from the falls, the up-close views of Niagara Falls are stunning! This is a MUST do experience when visiting the falls!

We purchased our tickets in advance, online. When we arrived, we took the elevator down, without a wait. We received our ponchos and went straight to the dock. We were on the boat within ten minutes and made our way out to the American side of the falls and then over to the Horseshoe falls. While there wasn't a guide on board to talk about the history and significant facts of the falls, it was enjoyable to take in the experience and enjoy the sheer force of being right by the falls. The whole trip only took about 20 minutes, but that's more than enough time to take your pictures, enjoy the surroundings and make sure the kids don't get too bored. I definitely recommend this.

The last time I visited Niagara falls 12 years ago we did the maid of the mist boat cruise, and had to let the kids experience the Falls from the boat for their first visit. The price is bit high but the feeling of the mist and the up close to falls experience is worth it. Just a tip keep your poncho hood up as their are alot of seagulls flying overhead and one gave my daughter a surprise on her back.

This was way more organized than our last visit here. The tour ran smoothly and at the entrance there is a great area to get drinks and relax. All in all an unforgettable experience.
