Overview

Experience Niagara Falls like never before, from an entirely new perspective, on this scenic helicopter journey. Enjoy the incredible sight of the American, Bridal Veil, and Canadian Horseshoe Falls from high above, along with a spectacular view of the many landmarks along the way, like the Niagara River and Whirlpool Rapids. Each passenger receives an individual headset that provides interesting and educational commentary about the falls during the flight. The view is unforgettable, but bring a camera to capture the moment.
  • Niagara Falls helicopter tour
  • Soar above the Niagara River, from the Whirlpool Rapids to Skylon Tower
  • Look down on all three waterfalls: American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and Horseshoe Falls
  • See interesting feats of engineering like the generating plant, Rainbow Bridge and the aero car
  • Listen to commentary through your own headset

Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This helicopter flight is ideal for time-crunched or budget-conscious visitors.
You can see Niagara Falls from eye level on the street. You can climb a tower and see it from above. You can even take a boat right to the edge of the falls. But nowhere else can you experience a view of Niagara Falls from the sky like this one, onboard a helicopter flying high above one of the greatest natural wonders of the world.

Begin this Niagara Falls helicopter tour at the heliport at the end of Victoria Avenue across the street from the Whirlpool Rapids in Niagara Falls. Meet the tour’s expert pilot and climb on board a 7-passenger Airbus H130 helicopter, featuring windows big enough to take great pictures.

Buckle up and get ready for lift off. Then enjoy the view from above all of Niagara’s natural and manmade attractions, flying directly over top of the American and Bridal Veil Falls, then along the curve of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. Look for the Whirlpool Rapids, the Sir Adam Beck Hydroelectric Generating Stations, the Rainbow Bridge, Queen Victoria Park, the Skylon Tower and more.

Throughout the tour, listen to taped commentary about the sites through a special headset.

  • "Although the wait for the chopper was around 1 hour it was still worth the trip." See review
  • "Only a short trip but well worth it, great views of the Falls and the river, pilot banks and turns so all passengers get the best photo opportunity." See review

Something checked off our bucket list!

It was my boyfriend and I birthday weekend so we decided to try something new. Honestly I think I just had higher expectations. It was over the top packed with people where it was no room to walk around. Everything was done so fast that you couldn’t even grasp the fact that you were doing a helicopter ride. PLEASE BE aware that there are 6 seats for people to sit in a helicopter so you can be sitting next to some you don’t know. Its not for sure you will have a window seat so you can get the bad end of the stick by sitting in the middle and the choice is not yours. The ride was so fast I’m not eve sure it was 12 minutes. I definitely could of saved the money but one thing for sure is I checked it off my bucket list.

Great ride, but some improvements possible.

First, the picture on the pad prior to liftoff kind of ends up being a hurried joke. If you have toddlers (we had two) you have almost no chance getting one where they're looking in the general direction of the camera. By the time I had my 2 yo facing the camera person they were walking away. No headsets, and the aircraft is very loud, so it's difficult to hear much of the canned guided tour. If you have a shorter toddler, try to put them up front or hold them on your lap, my toddler in the back was barely able to see of the door support. The views are amazing, we're still certainly happy we took the ride, just wish there would have been a decent picture of the family (with parties looking at the camera, or at least that general direction) that we could have purchased as a keepsake.

It was very long wait of 1.5hours before we managed to board the helicopter for 10min. I would say it's definitely enjoyable from the front seats but as we happen to seat at the back we only had 1 good look during one of the turns at the falls before the helicopter went back.So if you decide to book it make sure you seat at the front of the heli.

Well organised and efficient. Commentary good and there is a coffee bar and gift shop to round it off. Wish it lasted twice as long - but it was a great experience. Would love to do it again.
