The line went quickly but we went on a seemingly slower day (Friday in early June). They provide ponchos and the ride is... More

The staff were friendly and helpful-just missed a huge group of school kids so we had plenty of room to move around. The boat gets right up to the falls and seems to stay there forever. Definelty a must do... More

If you don't have a passport to get over to Canada to see the falls I highly recommend this! It's an experience all in itself! Worth it and not too pricey

This was the best attraction. Think it was something like 19 dollars per adult. Well worth it. You get a poncho to help keep you dry. The sights were amazing. Got some awesome pics and videos. With the Maid of The Mist ticket you get to go out to the Observatory Tower Platform which was nice. Was awesome.

We had a very limited amount of time and were concerned about long lines. However, we arrived a little before 9:00 a.m. on a weekday and were pleasantly surprised that there were no lines at all. This is a great way to see this natural phenomenon. We were not disappointed.

This is a must to really feel the true strength of the falls and get up close. Loved every minute and be prepared to get soaked!
