Time flies when you’re cruising and having fun! It’s been 8 months since we first opened for our 2015 season. Yesterday, we said goodbye, but not for long to all of our international visitors and local guests who travelled from 13,000 kilometers to 25 kilometers to see and feel the power and wonder of the roaring and most famous Falls.
Since we opened for the season in April 2015, thousands of amazing experiences were created and thousands of wonderful stories were shared. Just in case you missed visiting #NiagaraCruises this year or perhaps you were one of the thousands that did visit let us rewind to bring back some of our top highlights for 2015.
THE REVEAL OF OUR PRIVATE EVENT TENT
April didn’t just mark a beginning to our second season of operation it also marked the month for when we revealed our newest addition of our Private Event Marquee Tent. The 150-person tent was a beautiful addition that saw many private, corporate and special events. The popular venue is the perfect location nestled in the heart of the Niagara Gorge facing the Bridal Veil and American Falls. Interested in booking an event for 2016? Visit our website
RENDEZ-VOUS CANADA 2015
On May 25th 2015 we had the honour to host over 1,500 delegates during Rendez-vous Canada’s Welcome Reception. Rendez-vous is Canada’s premier international tourism marketplace lead by Destination Canada, connecting international buyers with Canadian sellers of tourism products. The event was a huge success welcoming Canadian singers, ‘The Trews’ and ‘The Mandavilles.’ The event also featured a wide selection of Niagara wines and foods and was completed with multiple Fireworks cruises.
AN INTERNATIONAL SUPERMODEL VISITS
It was an ordinary day when we received news that a high profiled supermodel, Kate Moss would be coming aboard our boat for an exclusive VIP visit. Kate who visited Niagara Falls, Canada and Toronto, Ontario with her family put #NiagaraCruises as a must on her sightseeing list. http://bit.ly/1GhY7jt Who would blame here?
THE WORLD FAMOUS LOVEBALL
The 5 ft. big love ball that was made famous from once being placed in a Vancouver designer storefront made its way aboard our boats over the Labour Day weekend (September 7-9, 2015). The ball a was hit with guests who visited during the busy long weekend. The round shape declaration of love ball even visited our sister ports at Statue Cruises, in New York for #5borough event and was featured at Daybreak and the Gay On the Bay Wedding at Hornblower Cruises & Events in San Francisco, California.

Australia’s most popular morning show made a visit to Niagara Falls to film their morning broadcast live in front of the world famous Falls. Niagara Falls was just one of the five popular cities that Sunrise travelled to as part of their Five Cities, Five Days tour.

Seven broadcast also visited Dubai, New York City, Mexico and London, England. The breakfast show and their film, crew traveled a total of 39,686 km, seven flights totaling 48 hours and 22 minutes of flying time.
FIRST EVENING CRUISE IN NOVEMBER
For the first time in history, our boats were seen cruising the Niagara River a few evenings in November for three special Fireworks Cruises as part of the 33rd annual Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival Of Lights. With mild temperatures in Niagara Falls, Canada and guests continuing to visit the city, we’ve extended our operating season until November 29th, that’s two additional weeks compared to our 2014 season!
