NEW for 2023 – Rainbow Air Helicopter Tours will be taking off and landing from Niagara Falls International Airport. This extends the length of the tour and gives our passengers a breathtaking view of the Upper Niagara River that goes from serene to spectacular as it moves to the mighty Falls. Our scenic tour provides lifelong memories for every guest, and they can all be captured by photo or video as you fly above and around this spectacular scene. Your tour will include a view of the Rainbow Bridge, American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, Horseshoe Falls, Goat Island, Cave of the Winds, Maid of the Mist, Queen Victoria Park, Clifton Hill, and the American Observation Tower to name a few.
As your helicopter takes off, you will follow the wide sprawling Upper Niagara River before it gently descends toward the rushing rapids, separates and surrounds Goat Island and the Three Sister Islands, and then makes its way over the brink of the powerful American and Horseshoe Falls at a combined pace of more than 750,000 gallons of water per second! As the water cascades, a radiant rainbow is guaranteed on any sunny day!
Your limousine to the sky awaits for the ride of a lifetime! People of all ages will soak up unforgettable views of one of the wonders of the world!
If you can afford the time, you will certainly enjoy one of our extended tours. After viewing the falls and all of the adjacent sights, we travel north following the Lower Niagara River over the World Class 5 Rapids. You will see the water continue downstream to the natural Whirlpool and Spanish Aero Car crossing over head. Continuing downstream, you will observe two of the world’s largest Hydro- Electric power plants, The New York Power Authority Niagara Project along with The Ontario Hydro Sir Adam Beck Power Plant. As you fly past the power plants you will cross over Artpark and the Village of Lewiston. As the winding river widens you will see Fort Henry and Fort Niagara where the Niagara River empties into Lake Ontario, which offers some of the best Lake Trout, Salmon and Walleye fishing anywhere.
