Hornblower Niagara tour boats are now in business

Niagara Gazette — Hornblower Niagara Cruises opened for the media on Wednesday to show off their new tour boats and facilities. The attraction opens to the public today.

They are the official boat tour operator on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. Maid of the Mist continues to operate on the American side of the Niagara River.

Hornblower will be operating two state-of-the-art catamarans and a 150-passenger rescue boat. The catamarans were built at Hike Metal in Wheatley, Ont., and can carry up to 700 passengers.

Tickets to ride range from $17.95 to $35 Canadian for an adult. Ticket information can be found at niagaracruises.com.

Terry MacRae, CEO and president of Hornblower, joined Janice Thomson, chairwoman of the Niagara Parks Commission and Niagara Falls Mayor Jim Diodati, along with other local officials for a ribbon-cutting ceremony before Wednesday's tours began.

No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
