Your guide will bring you to your first attraction, a boat ride on the famous Maid of the Mist. Before you board, you’ll have a chance to check out the view from the Prospect Point Observation Tower (also known as Niagara Falls Observation Tower), located directly above the boarding site for the Maid of the Mist boat tour.
While you’re on the boat tour, you’ll take in incredible views, hear the thunderous roars of the rushing waterfalls and you may get a bit wet, depending on where you stand - but don’t worry, you will be provided with a rain poncho for this boat ride.
The next stop on your tour is a visit to Goat Island which connects to Terrapin Point and Luna Island as well. While here you’ll learn about the history of the Falls, see the Nikola Tesla monument overlooking the Falls, and get very close to the Bridal Veil Falls which are situated between Goat Island and Luna Island.
After your Goat Island visit, your guide will take you to Cave of the Winds where you will descend 175 ft. into the Niagara Gorge before heading out onto a series of walkways leading to the “hurricane deck” - only a few feet away from the Bridal Veil Falls. You will be so close that it will feel like you’re surrounded by tropical storm-like conditions, even when it’s calm out.
Following your visit to Cave of the Winds, is the moment you’ve been waiting for all day. Your guide will take you to board a Rainbow Air helicopter for an unforgettable ride around Niagara Falls, the gorge and surrounding area.
Important to note: Infants are not allowed on the helicopter ride.
