Marvel at Niagara Falls from above on an exciting 10-minute helicopter ride! As you fly a scenic route along the Niagara River, see all of the area’s spectacular natural attractions, from Whirlpool Rapids to the three waterfalls that make up Niagara Falls — American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls and Horseshoe Falls. You’ll also zoom past sites like Skylon Tower and Rainbow Bridge. Individual headsets provide interesting and informative commentary about the falls as you fly.
Your helicopter experience begins at the Niagara Falls heliport across the street from the Whirlpool Rapids. Check in, meet your pilot and board your 7-passenger Airbus H130 helicopter, which features large windows perfect for snapping photos of the aerial views. Then strap in and take off! Under the command of your experienced pilot, your helicopter will take you on a smooth route above all of Niagara’s natural and manmade attractions. Throughout the tour, listen to taped commentary about the sights through your headset. As you follow the Niagara River, look down on the Sir Adam Beck generating plant, the Whirlpool Rapids, the aero car that crosses the gorge, Rainbow Bridge and Queen Victoria Park. Soar past Skylon Tower, and stare in wonder as the American Falls and smaller Bridal Veil Falls come into view. Switching directions, follow the curve of the Canadian-side Horseshoe Falls, watching for rainbows that often appear in the water. Then head back to the heliport, where your adventure ends.
