Niagara Falls Maid of the Mist
The Maid of the Mist operates the boat ride on the US side of the Niagara River in Niagara Falls New York USA.
Ride into the Mist! 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.
Maid of the Mist boats 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 to early November each year. Maid of the Mist boats depart every 15 minutes. A recyclable souvenir raincoat is provided free with admission to help keep you dry from the mist and spray. At the end of your boat tour you can visit the Maid of the Mist gift shop.
