Which cruises visit Niagara Falls?
How many waterfalls are there in Niagara Falls?
Niagara Falls consists of three waterfalls that make up the whole network: the Bridal Veil Falls and the American Falls (both on the American side) and the Horseshoe Falls (aka Canadian Falls on the Canadian side of the border).
How can I experience Niagara Falls?
There are a number of observation decks above and beside each of the three waterfalls that you can access. There are also boats that go into the mist beneath the falls, which is perhaps the best vantage point to experience Niagara Falls. A cable car zips people over the whirlpool downstream from Niagara Falls. And a lower observation deck puts viewers even closer to the might of the Falls.
Is it dangerous to go to Niagara Falls?
Many daredevils have attempted to experience Niagara Falls first-hand by going over them - some have survived; many have not. But that is illegal! So all of the legal ways to view and experience Niagara Falls, including from the observation decks and the boats that go into the mist, are completely safe.
