Bridal Veil Falls, Niagara Falls, NY

The Basics

There are several ways to see Bridal Veil Falls: boat tours, helicopter rides, and observation decks all allow up-close perspectives. One of the best places to see Bridal Veil Falls is at Cave of the Winds, in New York, where you descend to the Hurricane Deck, which is within spraying distance of the falls. You can also enjoy Bridal Veil while aboard Hornblower cruises departing from Canada and Maid of the Mist cruises departing from the US, as well as from viewing platforms on Goat Island (in Niagara Falls State Park) and from the Skylon Tower Observation Deck. Helicopter tours offer an aerial perspective on the falls and provide opportunities for impressive photographs.

This tour was fantastic! We had the pleasure of getting Cherie as our tour guide. She was so sweet and knowledgeable! She took us to all the falls and we learned all about their history. She was so patient with the kids and all their questions. And the fireworks show at the end was the cherry on top! Highly recommend!!!

I truly enjoyed the tour with Nick. He was kind, knowledgeable, respectful and enthusiastic. This made it better for being a tourist to be more engaged with it all. The beauty in itself is amazing but the knowledge provided on the tour helps heighten the experience. Highly recommend

Our tour was amazing, Kellie was joined by Cheri for our tour last night. They were both very informative and very pleasant to be around. They interacted well with our small group (4), and answered all our questions. Cheri was training and knows all things about Buffalo and the Niagara Falls area, Great Job Cheri. Kellie has stories about everything, she made the tour very enjoyable. I would recommend this tour to anyone that is interested in the Falls and it’s history.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative. He also provided water and snacks. We were able to view all the falls within an hour. Please bring comfortable shoes as it is a bit of a walk, but way worth it.

The Three Falls of Niagara

Niagara Falls is not just one waterfall, but rather three separate falls: Bridal Veil Falls, American Falls, and Horseshoe Falls. The largest of the three is Horseshoe Falls, two-thirds of which are located in Ontario. Around 90 percent of the water from the Niagara River flows over Horseshoe Falls.
