Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Will I get soaking wet?
A. Every guest is issued a disposable plastic poncho to wear during the tour which will keep you reasonably dry. When the boat gets close to the Canadian Falls is where you will encounter the majority of mist. If you wish to stay dry simply move to another location on the boat where there is less mist.
Q. How long does the tour last?
A. The average tour lasts 15-20 minutes.
Q. What should I wear or bring with me?
A. Summer is for shorts and t-shirts. A pair of beach shoes or sneakers work fine but don’t wear anything you wouldn’t want to get damp. For Spring and Fall weather you need to dress appropriately for the local weather and just expect to get slightly damp. Usually you will have the ability to get great photos right up until you get close to the base of the Canadian Falls. Remember that even a slight mist on your camera lens will ruin any photo!
Q. Where do I purchase tickets and board the boat ride?
A. Tickets are available at the ticket window near the entrance. The address is 5920 Niagara Pkwy, Niagara Falls, ON. The entrance is in Queen Victoria Park less than a minute walk from the base of Clifton Hill.
Q. Where can I park my vehicle?
A. There are three very large parking lots near Queen Victoria Park.
The closest parking lot which does require taking stairs to the park is on Clifton Hill and aptly named Clifton Hill Parking. For navigation use: 4960 Clifton Hill Parking, Niagara Falls Ontario Canada
Skylon Tower parking lot is very close to the Clifton Hill Parking lot and you can either take stairs or the sidewalk on Murray St to get to the park. For navigation use: Skylon Tower parking lot 5200 Robinson Street Niagara Falls Ontario Canada
Niagara Parks parking lot use: Niagara Falls Lot #1 6650 Niagara Pkwy, Niagara Falls Ontario Canada
If the Niagara Parks lot is full when you enter they will direct you to one of their satellite lots which then requires using the WEGO shuttle bus service. This lot usually never fills to capacity except during the months of July and August. If you plan on visiting the brink of the Canadian Falls at Table Rock during your visit this is the most convenient parking lot to use.
Q. I’m afraid of the water, is this ride safe?
A. Absolutely. There is no risk involved and our captains are the best!
