Water rushes all around as you "soak" in the excitement and explore the roar of the Falls. A historical ride aboard the world-famous Maid of the Mist is a half hour thrill of a lifetime! North America's oldest tourist attraction, millions of visitors have enjoyed the boat tours since 1846.
Admission to the Maid of the Mist is included with the Niagara Falls Discovery Pass, departing from the Niagara Reservation State Park.
Attraction Facts & Figures
A powerful diesel-engined boat will take you from the docks past the base of the American Falls, then into the basin of the magnificent Canadian Horseshoe Falls. Operating from late April/early May (weather dependent) to October 24 each year, the Maid departs every 15 minutes. Two 600-passenger boats, Maids VI and VII, are each 80-feet (24m) long and have two 350-horsepower engines that carry the vessels against the powerful current. A recyclable souvenir raincoat is provided free with admission to help keep you dry from the mist and spray.
Shopping at Maid of the Mist
At the end of your boat tour, you will enter the Maid of the Mist Plaza, which includes a gift shop.
