We had a wonderful time on the Maid of the Mist! Very hard to use a camera - would recommend a waterproof one for good pics! Had fun with the free pink ponchos blowing everywhere (they are paper thin) - would also recommend a raincoat with a hood! It was cold when we got off - and we didn't have a change of clothes. Our pants and shoes were soaked - as was our hair. We didn't care though - very worth it for the experience! The falls were amazing and the view from the water was a life-time memory! Highly recommend it!

My husband and I loved every bit of it. You get really close to the Falls and totally drenched. Our cameras are water-resistant and we managed to get some pretty good shots.

If we must complain, the ferry ride is a little too short. But overall, it's a magical feeling!

We bought the discovery package, an excellent value. Maid of the Mist was by FAR our favorite. Even getting soaking wet @ 48 degrees. I recommend this to everyone,

I have wanted to see the Falls via the Maid of The Mist for many, many years! I was not disappointed at all. I highly recommend this to anyone who is planning a trip to Niagara Falls.

The Maid of the Mist was a fun experience. We went after Labor Day and the line wasn't too bad, about 30-45 minutes after ticketing. There are three large elevators that take bring you down to the dock. Ponchos are provided, which help keep you dry, they also make cheap souvenoirs. The Canadian side has the same thing only a different color. The boat passes by the American Falls and brings you right up close to the Horseshoe Falls, which is pretty awesome. Actual time on the boat is less than 30 minutes. If you get to the front of the line when boarding you can get to the top deck at the bow and get the best experience and photo opportunities. The lower deck seems to get the wettest. We would definitely do this again.
