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.

This tour allows you to get up close and personal with the falls! The boardwalk was an easy walk down to the base of the falls. On the way, we walked through an area with many birds and their babies along the trail! Once you...More

What a great experience this was for our whole family. You are right underneath the falls. There was amazing views and the hurricane deck is the best part. My kids, husband and I had the best time here.

If you are coming to Niagara you MUST do the Cave of the Winds! fair warning you will get wet but you will have fun!! One thing also suggest is doing this first before Maid of the Mist.

A lot of fun, get to experience the falls up close. They supply you with footwear. Only down side when we went is smell of seagull poop near the falls. Nature at its best lots of kids seeing the babe seagulls

It is a great experience standing beneath the fall. We love the hurricane dock. It would be better to go on a warmer day.

Yes, you will get wet! But who cares, when will you get this close to something like this again. My only complaint was that the sandles they give you to wear would not fasten snugly on my narrow feet, but not a big deal as...More

Didn't enjoy it because the cape they give you wasn't anywhere near long enough.Pants were wet to our knees and our bags too. Hard to see when the water gets in your etes.
