Hearing the crashing waves and feeling the immense sprays of the Niagara falls on your face is an incomparable feeling. The Hornblower Cruise took us intimately closer to the falls, so that we could experience the breathtaking power of the Niagara Falls. A tip for tourists: I would recommend not carrying any electronic devices or valuables!
