Crews took the two Maid of the Mist boats which will be docked on the American side of the falls out of the water and onto land today.
The two boats, which weigh about 125 tons each will be docked on the new facility built as a result of the operational changes that took place this year and will extend into future seasons.
The Glynn family has operated the Maid of the Mist on both sides of the border since 1846, but beginning next season their service will be reduced to the American side only.
Hornblower, a company based in California, won a 30 year contract to operate tours of the Falls in Canada.
The Maid of Mist was rushing to complete a new storage dock for its boats since their old dock was located across the border.
Hornblower filed a federal lawsuit to block that construction but the lawsuit was thrown out.
