    I know I’m a couple of days late…

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Hornblower Niagara Cruises is set to sail for a fourth season, starting Saturday.

    The relatively mild winter meant there was no ice buildup in the Niagara River, so the boat tour operator set the April 1 start date and also began accepting bookings last month.

    “We have some weather and ice-modelling programs that we’ve created over the last couple of years and, about a month ago, we knew there were not going to be any significant ice concerns so we livened up our ticket sales,” said general manager Mory DiMaurizio.

    The popular tourist attraction also opened April 1 last year.

    “It was a great early start to the season and a great indicator of what was a landmark year,” he said.

    By comparison, the 2015 season didn’t start until April 30, following one of the coldest, longest winters on record. It’s inaugural season in 2014 started May 15.

    Boats are equipped with radiant heaters and visitors have the option of viewing the cataracts from “dry zone” areas.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Hornblower has set another record as it nears the end of its third season on the Niagara River.

    The boat-cruise company expects to reach more than 2.2-million passengers when its 2016 season wraps up Sunday.

    That’s up from 1.8 million last year and 1.6 million during its inaugural season in 2014.

    “It’s been an absolutely phenomenal increase year over year,” said Mory DiMaurizio, general manager of Hornblower Niagara Cruises.
