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.

Touch the falls!

Do not miss this tour! You can TOUCH the falls. My friend initially did not want to go on this tour and was very glad she let me talk her into it.

We didn't think that there would be anything new here after doing Journey Behind the Falls (Canada) and The Maid of the Mist. But this one is the REAL Niagara, You gat to stand (almost) literally under the falls here on the Hurricane deck. We got there at a slow time and couldnt get the kids to leave. Since there... More

Part of our Discovery Pass, my 7.5 year old and I loved this. You will get wet. Amazing to not only see the falls, but to touch and hear them as well. We went and we had no wait at about 10am on a Wednesday. Do this attraction before Maid of the Mist because they provide you with sandals, that... More

Cave of the winds is a must do when visiting the US side of the falls! You get a real sense of the force the falls has behind it. Prepare to get very wet! Trust me, it is worth it! A waterproof camera would have been awesome too. I can't imagine the shots we missed by not having one. This... More

This is by far the best thing to do on the American side of the falls. This is where you can get the closest ( and the wettest). They give you a rain poncho and sandals - wear them, especially on the hurricane deck. If you want to take pictures ther, you might want to get a waterproof camera. Can't... More

This was our first time at Cave of the Winds and it was amazing! Getting that close to Bridal Veil Falls really allows you to experience the power of the falls . Not to be missed!

An incredible experience, well worth the 2 hour wait(it can be much longer). Getting onto the hurricane deck is a once in a lifetime experience.

If you do no other attraction, visit the Cave of The Winds. This gives you the best experience of what it is to see the power of the falls. Go early in the day to have fewer crowds. There will always be crowds, but it is well worth it.

The Cave of the Winds was the BEST thing we did in Niagara Falls. We were staying on the 'Canadian' side but did this tour before we crossed the border. It was terrific fun, we all got soaking wet, it was super windy, super crazy and super fun. Our 9 yo daughter could not stop laughing, she had so much... More

You will love it! What an experience! If you are scared, just don't go too far into the Falls--if you are more adventurous, go for it and stand right in it! Great for pictures too!
