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.

This ride was excellent as long as you time it just right. The lines get pretty outrageous, we initially requested afternoon tickets however when we saw the lines we changed it for the first possible time slot the next morning. Totally worth waking up early we got straight on the boat and got great spots. The falls are very majestic the closer you get to them! Go early and avoid the line though!!!

Did this tour as we were staying on the Canadian side of the border, not the American. Did exactly the same thing as the famed Maid in the Mist. Took us right up to the falls and it was spectacular! Word of warning, you get a poncho, which is great for your top half, but be prepared to have you legs soaked! All is good, it's only water, a fact I had to keep explaining to my wife.

Loved it, a little foggy, a whole lotta wet, my poncho was destroyed by the wind but otherwise it was a great experience

A fantastic tour - line moved very quickly and we had very little wait time. Well operated. Boats not over crowded and all places are good to view, as the boat heads in then turna around, so both sides enjoys the view. Prepare to get wet - very wet!! Great fun.

We purchased are tickets online, last minute and the process was flawless. That allowed us to bypass the extremely long ticket line once we arrived onsite. Unfortunately, the address provided to us on our ticket vouchers after purchasing our tickets online was not found in our GPS and we had a lot of trouble getting in contact with a representative from the tour company when we got lost on our way there from Toronto. Eventually we made to the destination via directions from locals ONE HOUR before the last tour and surprisingly found parking. We made it through check in and onboarding in minutes due to the onsite organization and the well trained staff. The experience overall was amazing, for we expected to get close to the Canadian falls not go directly through the Canadian falls, which was AWESOME. Very affordable and accommodating, highly recommend.

Splendid, Splendid, and Splendid. Highly recommend this activity if you are visiting Niagara falls. It gives you a true idea of just how alive the falls really are when you get close up. Don't miss out on the opportunity.
