Mild weather sees Niagara City Cruises’ earliest ever opening

Monday, 20 Mar, 2023 0

Niagara City Cruises has opened earlier than ever before for the 2023 season.

It is running tours from 10am-4pm EST.

“This is a historic event for boat tours to the base of Niagara Falls marking the earliest on record that we have ever operated,” said COO Mory DiMaurizio.

“2023 is our comeback year, and we are excited to be able to welcome both locals and tourists alike.”

The early start is thanks to the minimal build-up of ice on Lake Erie over the winter.

While there have been some snowstorms, overall, conditions have been favorable.

As little as 1% of Lake Erie’s surface was covered with ice, and water temperatures were above freezing at the end of February.

The New York Power Authority and Ontario Power Generation began removing the ice boom on March 2, much earlier than usual.

Daily service begins March 31 with tours to the base of the Falls.

Expanded summer operating hours will begin May 1.

Tickets are available on the CityExperiences mobile app.

Niagara City Cruises is the official boat tour operator for the Niagara Parks in Niagara Falls, Canada.

It is a subsidiary of Hornblower Cruises and Events.
