The Maid of the Mist is not the only amazing boat ride in the Niagara River. Best part of this is that if you want to stay dry, you can by sitting in the “dry” seats. Highly recommend to anybody visiting Niagara Falls. Only about a 20 minute ride North of the Falls.

I definitely recommend this!

I was a little skeptical about this at first since i'm a scaredy cat.. but this was really fun. Even though i didn't have a seatbelt, i still felt secure. The seats were really comfortable- i loved how they moved along with the rapids. I also liked that they offered dry seating. I don't think i would have been brave enough to sit outside.. but if you are looking for a THRILL- then do that. I guess YOLO, right?

The ride was very entertaining. The tour guides were engaging and helped make the ride fun for all. The boat was piloted well and made you feel safe while everything happened. We will do it again in our next trip.
