The powerful falls are on the border of Canada and the United States and actually are composed of the three Bridal Veil Falls, American Falls, and Horseshoe
Falls, which is also known as Canadian Falls. Combined, these have the world's highest flow rate of any waterfall
with, as is said, over a million “bathtubs” of water plummeting over the edge each second. After dark each night,
the falls are illuminated by a spectacular light show, which is great to see on a night cruise.
How to view the falls:
Niagara is the most popular Canadian cruise option, and
the Maid of the Mist on the USA side is one of the oldest attractions in the area. Some Canadian tours
offer cross-border transportation to the boat’s departure point.
Journey Behind the
Falls. You walk through tunnels that are 130 years old onto an
observation deck behind the Horseshoe Falls.
Tower, which is a 520-foot observation tower with sweeping views
of Niagara Falls as well
as a revolving restaurant and an arcade.
2. Whale Watching
Mammoth whales frolic around the Gulf Islands and in the Strait of Georgia, so you
can see them when you visit Vancouver in British Columbia. The season runs from March through October as thousands
of whales are migrating through the area. The most common whales are resident orcas that feed on migrating salmon
and transient orcas that hunt mostly for seals and porpoises. You may also see gray whales. Be sure to bring your
camera to record them leaping through the water and often right beside your boat.
3. Lake Louise and the Icefield Parkway
|The Rockies are amongst the most spectacular scenic
locations, not only in
Canada but in the world, where you will find many picturesque places.

The Rockies boast some of Canada’s most spectacular scenery, but the rugged
terrain poses challenges that are best handled by taking a sightseeing tour. The guide will take you to explore the
picturesque Icefield Parkway, Lake Louise, and also Moraine Lake and Bow Falls. National park fees are
included. A 5-hour drive from Edmonton is what separates you from this
4. Grouse Mountain and Capilano Suspension Bridge
These are two more of Vancouver’s major attractions.. Take a walk through the
forest at the Capilano Suspension Bridge.
Ride the Grouse Mountain Skyride, which is North America's largest aerial tramway, and see the amazing views
from the top. Bring walking shoes and a rain jacket. The park entrance fees and taxes are included in the tours,
some of which also stop at the Capilano River hatchery.
5. Old Montreal City Walking Tour
Most of the major cities offer walking tours of different lengths with a local and
knowledgeable guide to give you stories and facts, and Montreal is no exception.
The historic centerpiece is Old Montreal with its culture, architecture, and history in the oldest area of the
city. You will see famous sites and squares like Bonsecours Market, Place Jacques-Cartier, Montreal City Hall,
Champ de Mars, Place d'Armes, and Notre-Dame Basilica where admission is included.
