Fodor's Review

Boats have been operating for Maid of the Mist since 1846, when they were wooden-hulled, coal-fired steamboats. Today, double-deck steel vessels tow fun-loving passengers on 30-minute journeys to the foot of the falls, where the spray is so heavy that ponchos must be distributed. From the observation areas along the falls, you can see those boarding the boats in their blue slickers. Unless you cower in the center of the boat, your shoes and pants will get wet: wear quick-drying items or bring spares.
