What You Can Expect

Niagara Falls Boat Tour: Voyage to the Falls

Feel the mist from Niagara Falls on the Voyage to the Falls boat tour.

Climb on board a state-of-the-art, 700-passenger catamaran cruise ship to begin a Voyage to the Falls like no other. There are two tiers on the ship — an upper and lower deck — plus an enclosed area that’s covered by glass, safe from the elements. 

Pick a spot and get ready for the fun to begin.

The ship will drift into the Niagara Gorge before cruising past the American and Bridal Veil Falls. Get the poncho ready because it’s now evident things are going to get really wet for those on the ship’s outer decks — the edge of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. Feel the cool spray and the powerful sounds of the water. This is the experience of a lifetime.

Voyage to the Falls is only a half-hour tour, but drinks and snacks are available inside the enclosed part of the ship for those who are interested. Additionally, there’s a souvenir shop at the landing area, with waterproof accessories to buy beforehand, or keepsakes to purchase afterward.

Please note: The Voyage to the Falls boat tour replaces the Maid of the Mist tour, which is now headquartered on the American side of Niagara Falls.

It wasn't busy at 9:30am and it was a perfect sunny day. The audio to go along with the trip was great for the kids. It was well run and a good trip -- the kids 11/8 loved the experience.

Fantastic. Would have been perfect if it was a warmer than 6 degree day.

The boat ride was awesome!! The good thing about this boat is that it has a section inside for those who don't want to get wet, like my parents! I went out up front with my waterproof GoPro and got some great shots of the Falls up close! But my parents stayed inside dry as leaves and were still able to see the Falls from the huge windows! It was a great ride! Thank you so much!

This was all we expected it to be. I was nervous, being so close to the falls, but it was really impressive and I had confidence in the pilot. There is no other way to really experience the power of the falls.

Enjoyed the ride and the organisation of the trip.
However, we had difficulty finding the launching site as the ticket didn't mention the name any where. Self driving tourists need more info.

The boat ride was fantastic. We bypassed the lines of people buying tickets and went straight to the dock. I didn't realize the tickets we purchased here included an audio player with earphones. The audio guide made the experience that much more amazing and we got to keep the player to listen to later. Best experience in Niagara!

It was amazing to ride underneath the spray of the Falls. You get pretty wet. The provided ponchos are good but having a hoodie was helpful.
