This exciting tour outfits you in a hooded raincoat and takes you into a cave and then along a catwalk near the foot of the falls for an up-close, wet and very rewarding view of the thunderous, cascading waters.

This is a must do! The hurricane deck is intense but awesone! Good for the whole family, but the hurricane deck would prob a bit much for younger children. My 9 yr old went to it but my 8 yr old wouldnt.

Fantastic! Highly recommend for families or couples or on your own! Be prepared to get wet even with poncho and shoes they provide. Great fun, great adventure. As close as you can get to the falls on foot.
