AAA Editor Notes

Hornblower Niagara Cruises boats depart from the dock at Clifton Hill and River Rd. on the Canadian side. Since 1846 visitors have experienced the majesty and power of the falls from a series of boats. Today's steel, double-deck, diesel-powered vessels enter the Horseshoe Basin, fight the mighty current and pass directly in front of the American, Bridal Veil and Horseshoe falls. Dry viewing areas are available on the catamarans. Tiered decks offer a 360-degree viewing range so no matter what side of the boat you are standing on, you will be able to see the falls. Visitors looking to combine the falls with evening entertainment will find Sunset Cocktail, Falls Illumination and Falls Fireworks Cruises available and early risers can get a Sunrise tour. Note: Rain ponchos are included with the cost of admission, however you may still get wet from the mist if you are not in a dry viewing area.
(Recyclable rain poncho included) $19.95; $12.25 (ages 5-12). Elevator cost included.
