Well worth a trip - you will get soaked but it's worth it. The boat takes you as close as possible to Horseshoe Falls and you can really get a sense of its scale. We chose this over the boat leaving from the Canadian side...More

Fantastic boat trip that takes you right next to the falls. The sound of the water coming down at a force is just breathtaking. Definitely recommend this trip

Very crowded but the lines moved fairly quickly. They packed a lot of passengers on the boat. Went right up to the falls, got wet and had good photo ops.

Put on your poncho, go to the front of the boat, let the mist hit you and take in the amazing view. Absolutely worth getting drenched for, and its less crowded in that spot
