It is a wonderful experience. The ferry ride costs $10, but it is worth the cost! Everybody is given a blue plastic raincoat, too. I have kept mine as a souvenir.

The boat doesn’t run all year round, for obvious reasons (the river freezes up), so if you plan on taking a ride be sure to visit sometime between mid-April to late October. It runs every 15 minutes from 9:45am to 5:45pm daily.

Tours are offered from both the American and the Canadian side. On the Canadian side, the tickets are available at The Maid of the Mist Plaza at the bottom of Clifton Hill. A relatively short walk and an elevator ride down to river level will take you to the boats. The entire trip takes about 45 minutes, and this could be the most exciting 45 minutes you will ever experience. Seeing the falls from 33 stories above is spectulcar, or from ground level, which is awe inspiring, but actually being a part of the Falls is truly unforgettable.
As the boat leaves the dock, we passed the American Falls that is smaller than the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. Over the load speaker, a voice is reciting facts and history of the area, but the only focus of most on-board is the thundering cloud of mist that lies directly ahead of us and draws our spirit to its beauty. We sense the tons of water rushing toward us at lightening speed. This spectacular event creates the truly "Perfect Storm", never ending, yet never consuming.
Another short walk and elevator ride takes you back to your starting point, and conveniently channels all visitors through a large souvenir shop. Outside the shop is a fast food restaurant, public restrooms, and a large shaded seating area for that final glimpse of the Maid of the Mist and Niagara Falls.
