Boat tours are popular in Niagara Falls, and everyone must go on one at least once. Multiple boat companies have taken guests to the base of the falls for many years. The base of the falls is a must-see as it offers a beautiful scenic view. Visitors can tour around in boats that depart every 15 minutes or so. This attraction is safe and attempts to bring passengers to proximity to the bottom of the waterfalls. Although the ride is intense, it is not scary. If your kids are okay with a bit of a bumpy ride, take advantage of the once-in-a-lifetime experience. Remember, it does get wet at the base of the falls. While ponchos or rain jackets are supplied, you might also want to bring a change of clothes and shoes.

Helicopter Rides

Although trapping the butterflies is highly discouraged, you can still invite them to land on your hand. Simply hold your finger out and invite one to rest for a little while.
