You MUST do this when you are there! You get wet - but so what? We had so much fun and you experience the power of nature! 5 stars!!!!!! Go there in the morning and take the boat at 8.30 or 9, less queuing .... Don't wear sneakers, go with flip flops ;) umbrella you can leave at home!

Boat trip is short. Only about 30 min from time you leave dock till you are off boat. If you don't want to get wet you can stand behind a glass wall and still get most of the experience but you don't get wet

We had a great time on the Hornblower experience. The rain poncho's are provided within your entry price and the staff are all very helpful and friendly.

A truly fantastic view of Niagara Falls and an experience you'll never forget!

Avoid public holidays if you can - and go in the early morning if possible - as the queue can get very long! We only waited 20mins at 8:30am but the day before the queue was absolutely huge at midday (although this was a visit between Canada Day and US Independence Day)

It was amazing to experience the majesty of the Niagara Falls from only 100m away. Being sprayed by the never ending mist emanating from the falls is a once in a lifetime experience! Well worth doing!

On our girls trip we went on the cruise, it was amazing! We have lived in Hamilton for 54 years and have never been on it, I don't know why we waited so long. We were traveling with our friend in a wheelchair and everything was wheelchair friendly. The only place we couldn't take was to the upper level, the main level was perfect. My only complaint was the ramps, a bit steep for the wheelchair. I have a problem walking with my one leg and it is a lot of walking. Price for cruise was reasonable but take your own water, one bottle costs $3.10, way too expensive! Staff was very friendly and helpful. Next time I would go when it's not as hot. Best view of the Falls you'll ever experience, a must do! My phone wasn't waterproof so no photo, sorry
