I’ve seen this in umpteen number of documentaries and movies. Experienced it and it blew my mind away. The views, the mist, and everything is majestic. Be prepared to get wet but it’s worth it. Fantastic

This trip was so amazing! Spent plenty of time right at the base of the falls. Thank goodness for the complimentary rain ponchos. Up top is the best view and we took some great pictures!

Great trip. You wear ponchos over your clothes but you will still get wet... its the mist from the falls, and the roar of the falls as you get close that makes it amazing. The boat ride is short around 20 min, but it's plenty...More

I divided to do both the Canadian and the American side boat ride. I am glad they k did both. The Canadian side when I did it was packed and I didn’t get a chance to secure a railing spot. So I got up early...More

The entire front of the boat has a great view. Try and get to the very top and you'll have an unobstructed view of the Falls.
