Niagara Falls Heliport , Niagara Falls, ON L2E 4B2, Canada

Address: 3731 Victoria Ave. Niagara Falls, ON L2E 6V5 Canada

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.

There were no headsets provided wich caused lots of discomfort since there is a lot of loud noise during the flight. There was promised an alternative language, but everything was presented in English. The ticket mentions a discount in the heliport terminal store. But no discount will be given even after requesting it.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Dear Klaas - Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry you were not comfortable during your flight. We do provide hearing protection free of charge for clients - there is a dispenser at our front desk. We also do provide audio through a surround sound system inside the aircraft. This audio is available in many different languages but not all. I am sorry we were not able to provide you the language of your choice. The discount at the Gift Shop is automatic. Our system is programmed to automatically take off the discount for our ticketed guests. I will personally speak to the staff to ensure they are in fact taking off the discount and not misinforming our guests. Again, I do apologize for the inconvenience. Anna Pierce VP and GM Niagara Helicopters

The ride was the experience of a lifetime for my child. We felt safe, but it would be nice if the pilot spoke or said hi even. Understandably they’re doing the same ride over and over, but again, it would add to the experience more … especially at that cost!
