The Maid of the Mist brought visitors to the very edge of the falls since the mid-nineteenth century.
The original Maid of the Mist was a steampowered paddlewheeler ferry, and entered service in 1846. Today, the name Maid of the Mist is shared by four modern diesel-powered ships. Maid of the Mist IV and V carry 300 passengers and operate from the U.S. side, Maid of the Mist VI and VII can hold 600 people and operate on the Canadian side.
Hooded raincoats are provided for all passengers and you are certain to need them. The wind-driven mist at the base of the falls is astounding and will bring thrills to adventurers of all ages.
The final year of Maid of the Mist was 2013 on the Canadian side. Starting in 2014, Hornblower Niagara Cruises begins offering cruises at the Falls.
