About

This is as close as anyone can get to Niagara Falls—without riding over them in a barrel, of course. This seasonal (May to October) tour travels to all the edges of the falls.
The journey begins with an elevator ride down into the Niagara Gorge, where wooden walkways along the Niagara River lead to the observation deck of the Cave of the Winds, just a few feet from the powerful rush of the falls. It’s like being caught in a tropical storm. This is what it means to be close to Niagara Falls. Really close.
Then it’s another elevator ride up to the only panoramic view of all three Niagara Falls—the American, Bridal Veil and Horseshoe Falls—from the observation tower. Stand over Niagara Gorge with an unobstructed view of all three as the waters rage below.
Finally, hop on board the popular Maid of the Mist for a boat ride to the very edge of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls, the most powerful waterfall in North America.
Notice: The Maid of the Mist departs from the U.S. side of Niagara Falls. All customers must have proper credentials to enter the United States.
Operating dates of the Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Winds are approximate and depend on weather conditions.
