Old Man River will be calling your name this summer in Niagara-on-the-Lake, encouraging you to step into the pages of a Mark Twain novel, joining the likes of Tom and Huck on a classic river adventure, but with a Niagara twist of course.
Beginning July 1st, Niagara Sunset Cruises will be running dining and sightseeing cruises on the Niagara Belle, a 150 passenger paddle wheeler that is oh so charming. Cruises will take place on the Lower Niagara River, giving passengers the perfect vantage point to watch Niagara-on-the-Lake’s beautiful sunsets. Owner and operator John Kinney notes that this has been something people have been asking for, for many years. This boat reminiscent of bygone era features “interior deck space with seating, outdoor strolling decks, dance floors, restrooms and panoramic views.”
The trips will offer several dining options including brunch, lunch and dinner, and provide guests “the opportunity to purchase a la carte food options on board.” Delicious foods paired with Niagara’s world class wines…what could be better?
The cruises will be leaving from a departure point at Navy Hall, a beautiful location right across from historic Fort George, and only a few minutes from downtown Niagara-on-the-Lake. Guests will get to see lots of different scenery while on the boat including Fort Niagara, Fort George, General Brock’s Monument and the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge.
Kinney relates, “we couldn’t be more pleased to be able to offer yet another top notch attraction to visitors in Niagara. We are very passionate about what we do on the river already, and this very special experience is sure to appeal to a wide variety of potential visitors.”
