A paddle wheel boat is slated to start cruises on the Lower Niagara River beginning next month.
The Niagara Belle will begin offering cruises starting July 18 from the Navy Hall site in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont. Operations on the U.S. side are expected to start sometime in September.
Niagara Sunset Cruises, which also operates the Whirlpool Jet Boat, is running the paddle wheel cruises, which will be available for corporate parties, weddings, dinners and sightseeing. Parties of up to 150 will be accommodated, except dinner cruises, which will host up to 90.
