Return Details

Returns to original departure point
You can see Niagara Falls from eye level on the street. You can climb a tower and see it from above. You can even take a boat right to the edge of the falls. But nowhere else can you experience a view of Niagara Falls from the sky like this one, onboard a helicopter flying high above one of the greatest natural wonders of the world.

Begin this Niagara Falls helicopter tour at the heliport at the end of Victoria Avenue across the street from the Whirlpool Rapids in Niagara Falls. Meet the tour’s expert pilot and climb on board a 7-passenger Airbus H130 helicopter, featuring windows big enough to take great pictures.

Buckle up and get ready for lift off. Then enjoy the view from above all of Niagara’s natural and manmade attractions, flying directly over top of the American and Bridal Veil Falls, then along the curve of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. Look for the Whirlpool Rapids, the Sir Adam Beck Hydroelectric Generating Stations, the Rainbow Bridge, Queen Victoria Park, the Skylon Tower and more.

Throughout the tour, listen to taped commentary about the sites through a special headset.

Traveler Tips


  • "No headsets, and the aircraft is very loud, so it's difficult to hear much of the canned guided tour." See review
  • "Although the wait for the chopper was around 1 hour it was still worth the trip." See review
  • "Only a short trip but well worth it, great views of the Falls and the river, pilot banks and turns so all passengers get the best photo opportunity." See review

The experience was AMAZING and shouldn’t be missed by anyone! I will definitely be doing it again. The staff were all friendly and courteous and on the ball making sure the process from entering the parking lot to the helicopter ride to leaving was done with class and safety especially now with Covid restrictions....thanks to all :)

Something checked off our bucket list!

It was my boyfriend and I birthday weekend so we decided to try something new. Honestly I think I just had higher expectations. It was over the top packed with people where it was no room to walk around. Everything was done so fast that you couldn’t even grasp the fact that you were doing a helicopter ride. PLEASE BE aware that there are 6 seats for people to sit in a helicopter so you can be sitting next to some you don’t know. Its not for sure you will have a window seat so you can get the bad end of the stick by sitting in the middle and the choice is not yours. The ride was so fast I’m not eve sure it was 12 minutes. I definitely could of saved the money but one thing for sure is I checked it off my bucket list.
