Hornblower Niagara Cruises Sets Sail For Its Second Season 

Spring has sprung and the warmer temperatures have finally arrived in Niagara Falls, Canada. After a long and exhausting winter Hornblower Niagara Cruises has officially opened for its second season on April 30, 2015.

Our first boat tour of the day and of the season departed at 9:30am with guests excited to be on the water and crew back on the boats. The 20-minute ‘Voyage to the Falls Boat Tour’ took our first passengers of the season on the thrill of a lifetime to experience the tingly and refreshing sensation of the mist. The clear blue skies and a touch of a rainbow provided the picture perfect moments for those to see and capture. Each year Hornblower Niagara Cruises welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors who travel miles to experience a one-of-a-kind world wide natural wonder. To kick off our season, we met some very friendly couples that also happened to be the first three couples to experience the boat tour for 2015. Allen & Arlene who visited from Texas, Wayne & Donna from Sydney Australia and John & Jackie who visited from Ohio to celebrate their wedding anniversary! These lucky guests received the ultimate Hornblower Niagara Cruises VIP treatment where they met Captain Julio, rang the Hornblower bell before it departed the dock, and even stood at the very front of the boat to get a perfect look and feel for the Falls.

On April 29, just one day before Hornblower Niagara Cruises opened, all three boats paraded in the Niagara River as a ceremonial firehouse salute to celebrate the opening of the 2015 season on April 30th.
