About
Fly high above Niagara for unmatched views of American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and Horseshoe Falls from the air. You’re able to take in the massive scale of the waterfalls as you glide over the water in a sightseeing helicopter, looking down at the Whirlpool Rapids and Skylon Tower. It's a perspective you can't get from ground level.

What to expect
  • 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.

Greatest 10 mins ever!! There were 3 helicopters in service so things moved pretty quickly. They put a minimum of 5 people on at a time and maximum of 7. The flight was very smooth and offers a pre-corded tour guide as you fly over. They offer free ear plugs. It was great for our 7 year old too! Highly recommend!!

On Sunday (Father's Day), my son and I were driving through Niagara Falls along the river and noticed the helicopters were running. We went in in short time, my son and I were flying over the Falls. The trip was fantastic, the ground crew very very helpful and the flight crew most professional. It was an unplanned flight that really made for a Happy Father's Day.
Thank you to the crew and staff.

It was an unforgettable experience, I had the joy of going with my boyfriend to celebrate his birthday, that was my gift to him and I was very, very happy because he loves helicopters, the landscape is amazing and the weather was perfect, I feel like the time although it was little, it was very adequate to see everything💫 I will do it again 😋

This past weekend we decided to take the helicopter flight over Niagara Falls. With visitors to the area down by a huge percentage without the usual international tourists, we took advantage of seeing our national treasure at a more relaxed and leisurely pace. Traffic was at a minimum and parking plentiful. I would say the majority of people were obeying and following social distancing and masking precautions. Businesses were very welcoming and eager to make everyone feel safe. With all this in mind, we went to take a flight in the helicopter. We only had to wait about a half hour and were very impressed by the cleaning procedures followed by the staff. The flight itself was a joy. Our only criticism was that even though we phoned ahead and talked to staff about the procedures, they failed to tell us that we would need to bring our own earphones and a smartphone to use the audio system in the helicopter. No earphones could be provided due to Covid restrictions. We would have enjoyed hearing the audio commentary while on the flight.

Well worth it. Great views of the Falls from the sky. Very smooth and slick operation. Not too much waiting time. Recorded commentary in the helicopter was good. Took the bus out to the airfield and back.

Our tour guide offered us the opportunity of the helicopter ride while travelling by bus from Toronto. We decided to go ahead as we also had a discount and the flight was after we had gone into the falls by boat. When we arrive no one was waiting so we were able to go up immediately. The helicopter normally seats 6 but it was just us and the pilot. We had the front seats and the views were awesome. We had a really clear sunny November afternoon but the sun was low so blinding sometimes to take photo’s. You are not up long probably 10/15 minutes but it’s an experience you will never forget. It was great seeing the falls from above and below in one day trip.

Such an amazing way to see the Falls - It was very brief, but ticked the box of seeing the Falls. Because it was low season we didn't book in advance and didn't have to wait. However, it would have been nice for a bit more chat with the staff. We were rushed on and off the helicopter !!

Niagara Helicopters Limited (Niagara Helicopters) is a sightseeing operation based in the Ontario community of Niagara Falls. Established in 1961 (over 50 years ago), it offers aerial tours of the Falls area under the “Niagara Helicopter Tours” name. Niagara Helicopters uses the seven-passenger, Airbus H130 for its tours (four in total). It has a spacious cabin, theatre-style seating, and large windows. Note that the helicopters are not wheelchair accessible. We opted for the “classic” tour. It runs about 12 minutes (approximately 10 minutes of flight) including loading/unloading and pictures. The view is spectacular! Highlights include American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, Horseshoe Falls, Whirlpool Rapids, Sir Adam Beck Hydroelectric Generating Station, Rainbow Bridge, Queen Victoria Park, and Skylon Tower. Taped commentary is provided through the helicopter’s headsets. I sat in the back. At no point did I feel uncomfortable or unsafe. Tickets are $288 for couples, $149 for adults (13+), and $92 for children (3-12). Purchase tickets online or on site. Weather permitting, the “classic” tour departs daily (starting from 9:00 in the morning and running until sunset from the Niagara Falls Heliport at 3731 Victoria Avenue (across the street from the Whirlpool Rapids). There is an on-site gift shop selling helicopter-related items (models, clothing, postcards, videos, plush, etc.) souvenirs (clothing, books, maple products, jewelry, etc.), and convenience store goods. Parking is free.
