Almost 4 hours waiting to be on the boat, the line was huge but it was totally worth it. The view near the falls is stunning. The people on the boat were very kind and I liked the overall experience the mist, the sound the smell, everything makes this an overall experience that you must try.

We got very lucky with November weather! It was warm and sunny, but the boat ride was still cold, wet, and VERY windy. Didn’t matter-this was the highlight of our trip! We got so close to the Falls! This is a MUST DO when visiting Niagara Falls!

We was in the last week of October at the Falls. Pretty everything closed, so we was happy that the maid of the mist was still running. It was really great. With the price of the boat ride is also the observation tower included ( tower alone $1.25 ) Before you get on board you will get a poncho and you will need it. Breath tacking views. When you come of the boat you can walk steps up to get closer to a part of the falls. You will be drenched. What I did not like , the souvenir store was closed and I could see they had nice things in there. Like a lot of places in Niagra falls a missed opportunity to make money in this covid times. There is not much effort for business.

Got our tickets and rode the elevator down and got on the boat within minutes! Not long after getting our poncho's on we left the dock. Great views all the way on both sides of the boat. When we got near the Horseshoe Falls it got windy, rough and wet! We had so much fun with all the other people trying to stay dry, see everything and get some pictures. I had to hold on to the railing several times while the boat was rocking! Glad we weren't up on the top level like I thought we would have preferred ! So much fun and thanks to the great crew for the entertainment!!

You really can't understand the height and magnitude of the falls unless you go on the boat ride. I honestly didn't get very wet either which was and is everyone's worry. My socks stayed dry!! The power of the water is experienced first hand.
