Make your Niagara Falls vacation unforgettable with this scenic 10-minute helicopter ride. The helicopter takes off from the vicinity of Niagara Whirlpool. Enjoy amazing views of the Niagara River and Niagara Gorge. As the helicopter heads upstream, you will see the American, Bridal Veil and Horseshoe Falls. You can take as many photographs as you like. Spot many iconic landmarks like Skylon Tower.
Arrive at the Niagara Falls Heliport on Victoria Avenue, just across Whirlpool Rapids. You can take photos before takeoff. Experienced ground crew ensures passengers are safely secured before takeoff.
See the Niagara Whirlpool which was formed some 4,200 years ago by upstream erosion. The Whirlpool is 125 feet at its deepest point. You can catch a glimpse of the Whirlpool Aero Car making its way over the Whirlpool.
As the helicopter flies further upstream along the Niagara River, you can view the turbulent whitewater rapids rushing through a narrow part of the Niagara Gorge. Close to the rapids is the landmark Rainbow Bridge, an arch bridge connecting Niagara Falls USA and Niagara Falls, Ontario.
Next you will see the American and Bridal Veil Falls. The American and Bridal Veil Falls are two waterfalls that are a part of Niagara Falls. They are located entirely on US territory.
Horseshoe Falls is the third waterfall forming Niagara Falls. Approximately 90% of the water in Niagara River flows over the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. If you are lucky, you can see rainbows form over Horseshoe Falls. You can also view the upper Niagara rapids.
You can view some of Niagara Falls’ major attractions such as Skylon Tower, Niagara Fallsview Casino and Niagara SkyWheel from the helicopter.
Land safely back at the helipad. The helicopter ride will perhaps be the most exciting part of your Niagara Falls tour and leave you with some cherished memories and a camera with lots of amazing photos.
