At Hornblower Niagara Cruises there are so many sites to see including the thundering waterfalls, the 12,000 year old rock formation that once created the Niagara Gorge, views of our Hornblower Landing and even the sites of our hardworking marine crew who do an amazing job welcoming our guests aboard the boats.


Our dedicated and professional captains and first mate’s operate the 700-passenger catamarans, witnessing thousands of passengers experiencing Niagara Falls each day. Not only does the captain have the responsibility of operating the boats safely, but also welcoming our guests as they arrive and thanking them as guests depart. For our contest, your job aboard our boat is to stop and snap a photo with one of our captain’s or first mate’s when visiting Hornblower Niagara Cruises for a chance to win an amazing prize. This contest is a great way for guests to learn more about the captain’s role and see what makes it so amazing working at Hornblower Niagara Cruises.

Hornblower Captain and First Mate


When boarding the boat or evening cruise there will always be one captain and one first mate who operate on each of the two catamarans so spotting them among a boat full of 700-passengers in red ponchos won’t be too difficult. Here’s how you enter:

1. Find one of our captains or first mates during your upcoming daytime boat tour or evening cruise

2. Ask for a photo with one of them or if your lucky both Captain and First Mate. (The photo must be taken at Hornblower Niagara Cruises and must be taken either on the boat or on land at our Hornblower Landing.)

3. Upload the photo to our Facebook, Twitter , Instagram or Google+ pages.

4. Use the hashtags #WinWithHNC and #NiagaraCruises. (Those that don’t include the hashtags will not be qualified for the contest.)

The contest kicks off on Monday, August 10, 2015 and will conclude on Friday, September 11th at 12pm EST.
