Falls Fireworks Cruise (May 19 –October 9)


From May to September, there is a fireworks display at 10:00 p.m., over the Niagara Falls. What better way to view the fireworks show than on the Hornblower Niagara Fireworks Cruise!

Cruise time: 9:30 p.m. – 10:10 p.m.

Boarding time: 9:00 p.m.

Boarding is done by 9:15 p.m. and the boats set sail at 9:30 p.m.

This 40-minute boat ride takes you to see the illuminated Falls and fireworks display. As the boat moves slowly on the Niagara River, enjoy the view of the city and the illuminated Falls. This is a Light Mist Experience.

You will be given a complimentary rain poncho to protect you from the spray coming from the Falls.

The cruise also features a licensed bar, light snacks and music. Enjoy the pleasant evening and the spectacular sight of Niagara Falls reflecting a rainbow of colours from coloured lights.

Fireworks are set off at 10:00 p.m. from Queen Victoria Park and light up the night sky over the Falls in dazzling patterns.

After the fireworks end, it is back to the docks.

Tickets for the fireworks cruise are limited, so book ahead to avoid disappointment.

Arrive early for your boat cruise and you can enjoy live musical entertainment, fine Niagara wines, local craft beers, BBQ items and great food at the Riverside Patio, which is just a few feet from the boat docks.
