Due to the extension of the boating season by Niagara City Cruises, there will now be able to offer two more Fireworks Cruises to their schedule.

Even though the Niagara Falls daily fireworks shows ended Thanksgiving weekend, the schedule was extended to a few days during the annual Winter Festival of Lights that starts Nov. 18.

In much the same way, Niagara City Cruises, run by Hornblower, has also extended its season on a limited schedule basis into late November when in previous years, the boats have usually been put into drydock.

That has given both Niagara Parks, the group that runs the fireworks, and Niagara City Cruises the opportunity to run two more Fireworks Cruises.

So on Saturday, Nov. 18 – the opening day of the lights festival – and Saturday, Nov. 25, there will be two final Fireworks Cruises.

“These last two Falls Fireworks cruises of the season merge two of Niagara Falls’ most unforgettable experiences,” says Mory DiMaurizio, Chief Operating Officer of City Cruises in Canada.

“Witnessing the mesmerizing illuminations of Niagara Falls from the perspective of our boats is vastly different from standing at the top of the gorge. It truly is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Coupled with fireworks bursting from above, it offers a truly distinctive and enchanting way to embrace the seasonal magic.”

DiMaurizio added, “Niagara Falls in winter presents a distinctive fusion of frozen beauty and tranquility. The brisk air carries with it a sense of awe, and the sparkling lights, combined with our iconic landmark attraction, unveil a unique and enchanting form of magic.”

Adult tickets for the Falls Fireworks Cruise are $37.75. Child tickets (12 and under) are $24.75. Tickets are available here.
