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.

Forget worrying about being cold and wet- it's well worth it! The price is very reasonable, they provide everything you need, and you'll never experience anything like it!

We LOVED this attraction! We went at the end of June and arrive at about 3:30pm. There were no lines and walked right up to the elevator and onto the wooden staircase. We decided to use the recommendation to do this attraction before Maid of the Mist for the free sandles. Even with the free poncho, you will get wet.... More

You will be taken away by the complete and total power and beauty of Niagara. The coolest thing to do at Niagara Falls State Park. Breathtaking and rejuvenating.

I grew up in Niagara Falls area and still am amazed by the Cave of The Winds tour. Best in summer when you can get splashed and walk right into the water. Do not miss it.

This we had already made our mind up we would be doing alone with the maid of the mist. We were not disappointed and so glad we did it. Included in the price alone with a cape yellow this time is a pair of sandals which stop your feet getting wet and also make sure you have sure footing. We... More

I went to Niagara Falls with my family on summer 2014 on a very tight budget. We had to sleep in very cheap hotels and cook on a camping stove in the hotel room in order to be able to pay for all the attractions. I am a stay at home mom and my husband only provider. That being said,... More

The only bad thing about the cave of the winds is that we stood in line for 2 hours to get down to it and then 45 minutes to get back up. They had one elevator working for the entire attraction. It's very cool being right under the falls and you will get absolutely soaked.
