What You Can Expect

Niagara Falls Illumination Night Cruise

Niagara Falls Illumination Night Cruise

Climb on board a state-of-the-art, 700-passenger catamaran cruise ship to begin a Falls Illumination Cruise 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, enjoy the music and get ready for the fun to begin.

The ship will drift into the Niagara Gorge before cruising past the illuminated American and Bridal Veil Falls. Get a poncho ready because it’s now evident things are going to get really wet for those on the ship’s outer decks, at the edge of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls, in all its nighttime splendor. Feel the cool spray and the powerful sounds of the water in front of the ship, with the lights of the gorgeous city skyline to the side — and on the right night, a fireworks display* overhead. 

This 40-minute Niagara Falls Illumination Cruise is the viewing experience of a lifetime.

Adults get one free drink from the fully licensed bar while children get a free glow wand to help light up the night. Additional drinks and snacks are available for those who are interested.

*Fireworks take place on Fridays, Sundays and Canadian and American holidays, as well as other dates during certain weeks; see Additional Info for more details.

Our Illumination night cruise was awesome. When I booked the trip I verified that there would still be fireworks but when I printed our ticket it said fireworks discontinued for the season. I was a bit disappointed. But it turned our our cruise was the same night as the eclipse, even better than fireworks! The whole crew and staff were wonderful. Would highly recommend this cruise.

It was great! The amount of time on the water, close to the falls was perfect. The firework show was spectacular. The crew members were friendly and accommodating. It was well worth the price paid. Thank you!!!
