New Cruise Boats are Coming

Hornblower Niagara Cruises set to start 2014

Hornblower Canada, the owners of three new luxury catamaran boats, say everything is on schedule for these boats to ply the lower Niagara River below the falls in the spring of 2014.

These cruises offer the usual fantastic up close; get wet views of the majestic falls but will also offer sunset cruises and a fireworks cruise.

 Two of the boats will each accommodate about 700 people. In addition, a smaller boat will be available for private events such as weddings and corporate parties.

On the Canadian side of the border there will be a new Falls Landing Viewing Platform.

The artist sketches of the new platform and the boats look fantastic.

At the same time, the historic Maid of the Mist boats will now be launching their boats from a new location just beyond the Rainbow Bridge in the United States.

2014 is proving to be an interesting year for cruising below the falls.
