Enjoy an intimate experience aboard the Niagara Guardian Boat, for an exciting experience you will never forget! The Niagara Guardian can accommodate up to 142 passengers, it is a seated open-air cruise experience that gives you a misty encounter with Niagara Falls! The Niagara Guardian boat tour is available by Niagara Ultimate Cruises.
Guests experience the legendary tour of the Great Niagara Gorge, American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls and an up close and personal encounter with the thundering water, awesome power and cooling mist of the mighty Canadian Horseshoe Falls.
Peak visitor traffic occurs in the summertime, when Niagara Falls are both a daytime and evening attraction. From the Canadian side, floodlights illuminate both sides of the falls for several hours after dark (until midnight). The number of visitors in 2007 was expected to total 20 million, and by 2009 the annual rate was expected to top 28 million tourists.
The oldest and best known tourist attraction at Niagara Falls is the Maid of the Mist boat cruise, named for an ancient Ongiara Indian mythical character, which has carried passengers into the rapids immediately below the falls since 1846. Cruise boats operate from boat docks on both sides of the falls with Hornblower Cruises on the Canadian side. You can reserve a tour aboard the Niagara Guardian with Niagara Ultimate Cruises for a thrill of a lifetime!
