Maid of the Mist
Ready to “explore the roar”? The Niagara Falls Maid of the Mist tour takes visitors on an excursion into the basin of Niagara Falls State Park's Horseshoe Falls. Generations of Niagara Falls visitors have named the Maid of the Mist tour as one of the highlights of their trip. A favorite Niagara Falls State Park attraction for more than 150 years, the journey begins at the Observation Tower, where guests don a souvenir rain poncho and board the double-deck Maid of the Mist tour boat. From there, the dramatic passage ferries past the base of the American Falls, and on to the basin of Horseshoe Falls, through roiling waterfall whitewater and massive rock formations. The Maid of the Mist returns guests to shore with newfound appreciation of the power and grandeur of Niagara Falls.
From the American side of the Falls, it's hard to beat the view from Goat Island - the oldest state park in the country. Stroll the footpaths or take the 175 foot elevator ride into the depths of Niagara Gorge.
