Here, the tourists will witness 6 million cubic feet of water falling over the edge on the top line, right in front of their eyes. The Maid of the Mist ride helps you delve deeper into the falls to have a view like never before!
Niagara Falls is one of the most storied tourist attractions of the world. This is a waterfall with a total height of around 167 Feet, situated at the border of Canada and the United States. The Canadian part of the falls is also known as Horseshoe Falls, while it is divided into American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls towards the American side.
The Legends of Adventure movie is showcased in a 314 seat auditorium picturizing the myths and the mysteries centered on the river Niagara. The sound is delivered through Digital Dolby surround sound as well as the river Niagara itself playing background music for the show. All the more, there are complimentary headsets provided for people of Chinese, Korean and Spanish origins.
The tour comprises attractions like the Niagara Whirlpool State Park and the Old Fort Niagara, a 300 year’s old fort that holds supreme historical importance. The fort is known to have played a critical role during the war between France and India, the American Revolution and the War of 1812. The Niagara Whirlpool attracts public as it is a 125 feet deep whirlpool and was formed around 4200 years ago.
Niagara Falls holds the history of almost 75 years to have been mesmerizing the public with vibrant illumination both from the American side as well as the Canadian side of the river. The night view from the US might be limited or not available sometimes due to the US Federal Government regulations on driving hours and late sunset time.
The Jet boat provides you a chance to play among the white water rapids on the Niagara River. It is enjoyed through a custom-built vessel that uses a triple turbo diesel waterjet system for better control, as you will be zipping past propelling and steering between the harsh courses of rapids.
The Old Fort Niagara is a 300 year’s old fort that holds supreme historical importance. The fort is known to have played a critical role during the war between France and India, the American Revolution and the War of 1812.

The only adventure on day 2 will be the Thousand Islands which are a group of 1800 small islands on the St. Lawrence River. The tour will travel to the village of Alexandria Bay for starting off with the cruise ride to the Thousand Islands.  You will be amazed to see from distance the huge historical mansions like the Singer Castle having Gothic styled windows and hidden passageways located on the Dark Island, the famous Boldt Castle on Heart Island, and the world’s smallest international bridge on the Zavikon Island. By cruising through many of these islands, you will truly fall in love with the peaceful vacationland. From there on, the tour will head back to Boston. 

A group of 1864 islands together, the Thousand Islands tour on the cruise perhaps make for the most beautiful destination in New York definitely worth a visit. The Saint Lawrence River on which these islands are based emerge from the north-east corner of Lake Ontario, and connect the Great Lakes with the Atlantic Ocean. The Thousand Islands were once the hot-spot of pirates. Among the prominent locations of the islands are the Deer Island, Zavikon Island which is known for the world’s shortest international bridge, and the Boldt Castle mansion situated on the Heart Island. Spread over a 50 miles area, some islands of the Thousand Islands, lie both on the American as well as the Canadian side of the River.
