Group Tours in Niagara Falls for Spring

Hornblower Niagara Cruises: Your Questions Answered


As the season for the Maid of the Mist draws to an end and the boats cease to operate on the Canadian side of the Niagara Falls, many people continue to ask us about the new operator taking over the boat tours in Canada, Hornblower Niagara Cruises.  To answer some of these questions, I walked down the street and chatted with Mory DiMaurizio, Hornblower Niagara Cruises (HNC) General Manager on Frequently Asked Questions regarding the new development of the upcoming cruises.

Hornblower Niagara Cruises

1. When can we expect the Hornblower Niagara Cruises to be set to open?

Hornblower Niagara Cruises is expected to open mid-April as Niagara’s Premiere 2014 attraction expected to re-invent one of Canada’s most iconic visitor experiences.

2. What differs between the Maid of the Mist boats and the Hornblower?

Our boat rides will expand the visitor experience to include Early Morning Boat Tours, Evening Sunset Cruises, Falls Illumination Cruises and Falls Fireworks Cruises.

Our Early Morning Boat Tours and Voyage to the Falls Tours are 15-20 minutes in length. Our Sunset Cruise, Falls Illumination Cruise and Falls Fireworks Cruises are 3-40 minutes in length.

Hornblower Niagara Cruises is located on the Niagara Parkway at the north end of Queen Victoria Park, close to the Rainbow Bridge and Oakes Garden Theatre at the foot of the Clifton Hill tourist area.
