This activity will end right where it started.
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.

Only thing would say they don’t let you click pictures on your phone which I dint quite like it. It was for our memories but they don’t allow that

Thank you for your review. Your particular situation is unclear as we do in fact allow people to take as many pictures as they would like with any devices they choose within the helicopter and on the ground. We do, however request that our clients clear the safety area as quickly as possible to allow our staff to board and disembark passengers safely.
