Overview

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.

We went on this excursion at 7pm on a Sunday. There were no lines as great sunset type views. Earlier in the day would have been too busy and longer waits to go on the deck. Our group had 3 kids under 8 and a...More

The Cave of the Winds experience was arguably better than the Behind The Falls tour on the Canada side, however, the Horseshoe Fall is more stunning than the American Falls so I would recommend doing both. They have the process down to a science: (1)...More

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.

This was our first activity of our summer vacation. We knew we wanted to start off with a close view of the waterfall. Well, this definitely got close. It was definitely pricy but well worth it as you get a free poncho and water shoes...More

Opted for this over the maid of the mist or the jet boat tour. We weren’t disappointed! Probably could have used a bit more time in the museum before heading down the elevators but the best part was standing by hurricane falls. You WILL get...More

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.

I had a 5 year old with me. She used her poncho but was scared to go near the base of the falls. So she stayed back with other people in the tour while we went ahead. It's safe but the wind and water may scare them
