What To Expect

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.

Gorgeous view while flying over the falls and the people are very nice and easy to work with. Would highly recommend this experience. The pilot also makes sure everyone can get a good shot of the falls as well.

Took our three year old here for her third birthday. Loved it! Nice little shop on site and great quality pictures for the experience. Will be doing again.
Experience of a lifetime
Melanie_R, Jul 2021
The ride was the experience of a lifetime for my child. We felt safe, but it would be nice if the pilot spoke or said hi even. Understandably they’re doing the same ride over and over, but again, it would add to the experience more … especially at that cost!
