That’s right, this popular attraction which takes visitors on a thrilling catamaran ride to the base of the American and Canadian Horseshoe Falls will be extending their season until Sunday, December 2nd - weather depending. It will be the second consecutive year Hornblower has extended their season into December. They are able do this because the Niagara River usually doesn't freeze until late January.
The 2018 season is all the more impressive because it was delayed 35 days from its scheduled opening due to icy weather conditions.
The boats will operate until the season ends, every half hour from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
Hornblower Niagara’s Mory DiMaurizio, Vice President and General Manager said in a news release, “It’s a great time to see and experience the lovely fall foliage in the gorge and you won’t get a more unique vantage point than from the deck of one of our boats of the lights of the Winter Festival of Lights now in full swing.” I couldn’t agree more.
Hornblower operates two catamarans, called the Niagara Wonder and Niagara Thunder. Each boat offers unobstructed views, Wi-Fi, and refreshment services.
