Although the peak season had ended long ago, we really enjoyed this ride in one of the best tourist attraction. The kids were thrilled to observe the falls from near and get wet in the mist. A must do while in Niagara

Loved our time on this tug boat. Felt as though you were going right into the falls. Boat did not seem as crowded as Hornblower. The whole ride takes about 20 minutes.

It was awesome! You have not seen Niagara Falls until you have been on this boat. It can be crowded and you have to kinda take turns at the railing and taking pictures but the views are totally worth it!

You have to do this if you want to truly experience Niagara Falls up close. You will get damp but they provide ponchos to keep you from getting drenched! They worked pretty well! Easy access from the ramp to the boat even for handicapped. So...More

The Maid of The Mist is a lot of fun. You get the best view of the falls even though you are looking thru a lot of mist (spray). That is half the fun. But you don't get very good photos as the spray covers...More

We went on a cool and cloudy day, off season. As such, we got right on a boat. Each guest is given a rain poncho that you really want to wear. This month they were pink in honor of breast cancer support. The boat takes...More

You can put it under your pocho. If you take a tour your tour guide will stay with it while you go. Our tour guy Bob did it for us. He was really nice.

I'm sure there are times when the lines are longer than when we were there. It was about 1pm on a Saturday when we got there. The Maid of the Mist crew does a good job keeping the lines moving.
