Amazing and fun! The ticket includes the high-in-the-sky observation deck for an awesome view of the Falls and the Rainbow bridge. In May, we didn't have to wait in line at all. The boat trip into the Falls was slow and steady. Then we hung...More

I very much enjoyed my boat ride at Niagara Falls yesterday. Everything was smooth and efficient, allowing me to witness this great wonder for less than $30. What a great day.

This iconic excursion is all it's knocked up to be! Even with raincoats, it's hard not to get wet from the spray, because you are directly under the Horseshoe Falls. We did this on a tour so I'm not sure how much it actually costs....More

Getting so close to the Falls was thrilling. The mist from Horseshoe Falls made it impossible to make out exactly where we were. I highly recommend this ride to anyone visiting Niagara Falls.

Niagara Falls really took my breath away. When the boat moves near the fall, really cannot believe I have travel so far to visit this world wonders

It's a must do here. Breezy and misty.... the boat ride is memorable. Look out for the rainbow formations. Carry a waterproof camera or cell phone so that you don't miss on retaining the memories.
