The days have gotten longer, the weather has gotten warmer, all signs are pointing to summer! Have you caught yourself daydreaming about a getaway? We know we have, a few times. And lucky for everyone we’ve come up with some great reasons to start planning a trip to Niagara Falls, Canada this year.

Why You Should Plan a Visit To Niagara Falls, Canada NOW!

1) Fireworks Cruise

More Fireworks Cruises this summer than ever before! Over 80 Fireworks Cruises scheduled seven days a week from June 15th to September 3rd. This unprecedented schedule gives visitors to Niagara Falls more chances than ever before to experience Canada’s oldest and longest running fireworks festival. Book your tickets online in advance to save your space on this incredible nighttime experience. Make sure to arrive early to take advantage of our Riverside Patio before your cruise!


2) The Weather

The weather is on our side for the upcoming summer season. Long-term weather predictions are showing a lovely warm summer ahead, “The most consistent warm weather is expected during the second half of June and well into July.” Seasonal summer temperatures are between 25 and 27 degrees Celsius in Niagara Falls, which Hornblower has determined to be the perfect sailing weather. Because nothing feels better on a hot summer day than the cool refreshing mist of the Falls!


3) Food

At Hornblower Niagara Cruises we are always looking to improve our attraction and the overall visitor experience. A large part of this since opening in 2014 was the development of our food and drink program. The opening of our Riverside Patio was an incredible step forward in delivering a dining experience like no other! And this season we’re stepping up our game with a whole new menu. Featuring Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Funnel Cake Fries, and the Canadian Classic Poutine we’ve got food items to satisfy every pallet. And local Niagara craft beer and wine to pair perfectly with each menu item!


4) Hornblower Niagara Funicular

We’re excited to have our newest Hornblower Niagara attraction opening this season, the Hornblower Niagara Funicular! This incline railway will bring guests from our Group Check-In Booth to Hornblower Landing in two brand new temperature controlled, glass enclosed cars. With 360 views of the Niagara Gorge, this is soon to be the best way to descend to water level before boarding our boats.

At the end of the day, the best reason to visit Niagara Falls is the Falls themselves! This incredible world wonder is a bucket list item you NEED to scratch off the list as soon as possible. And the best way to see the American, Bridal Veil, and Canadian Horseshoe Falls up close and personal is from our boats. You won’t regret getting that #InTheMist photo!
