Overview
Experience America’s most iconic waterfalls up close on a 4-hour tour that includes a scenic boat trip to the base of the falls. Feel the spray from Horseshoe Falls as you stand on the deck of the Maid of the Mist, and watch the surging water disappear beneath your boat. Capture classic images of Niagara from the Crow’s Nest observation deck, then go deep into the Cave of the Winds to see Bridal Veil Falls from the legendary Hurricane Deck—waterproof poncho included!
What to Expect
This tour from Niagara Falls, New York, provides the opportunity to discover the undeveloped natural beauty of Niagara Falls State Park. After hotel pickup in town, head to the falls with your guide, who takes you through the paths of the park to reach the Maid of the Mist, the falls' iconic boat cruise.

From the Niagara Falls Observation Tower, descend 250 feet (76 meters) to the base of American Falls to board the cruise. Then make your way into the belly of Horseshoe Falls, feeling the cool spray and listening to the roar of 600,000 gallons of water falling over the cliffs each second. Hang on tight as you experience the power of the churning water below you make its way down the Niagara River.

Back on land, your second activity begins as you go to the base of the falls and climb a series of stairs to the Crow’s Nest. During your exploration, your guide leads you onto Goat Island, where the Cave of the Winds provides a closer look at the falls as you head 175 feet (53 meters) deep into the gorge. At the bottom, put on your provided bright yellow poncho and specialized footwear, and hike along a series of wooden walkways up to the Hurricane Deck to come face to face with the fierce base of Bridal Veil Falls.

Look for rainbows that are often spotted, and enjoy additional views of the falls from above at various lookouts like Prospect Point, Terrapin Point, and more. Throughout your tour, your guide provides commentary on the rich history and mystery of the Niagara region.

You only need a passport if you cross over the Canadian border. This tour is boarded on the US side so NO, you do NOT need a passport.
