Get ready for an extraordinary journey as the legendary Maid of the Mist, an all-electric wonder in continuous operation since 1885, kicks off its 2024 season on Thursday, April 4, at 10 a.m. This beloved boat, entering its remarkable 139th consecutive season, stands proudly as one of the longest-continuously operating tourist attractions in North America.

President Christopher M. Glynn shares the exciting news of an early opening due to a mild winter, ensuring visitors can experience the awe of Niagara Falls sooner than expected. The crew is eagerly prepared to offer a one-of-a-kind bucket-list experience.

For the upcoming season, Maid of the Mist extends its hours, operating every half-hour on weekdays (from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and weekends (from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.). Summer will see further extensions, allowing you more time to bask in the mesmerizing beauty.

A special highlight for 2024 is the accommodation of the Total Solar Eclipse on Monday, April 8. In anticipation of the high volume of eclipse enthusiasts at Niagara Falls State Park, extended hours from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. are offered. Vessel tour operations will run on a first-come, first-served basis on the day of the eclipse, providing a unique opportunity to witness this celestial event.

It’s essential to note that on the day of the eclipse, the Crow’s Nest will be closed, and Observation Deck-only tickets won’t be available for sale.

Ticket prices are $28.25 USD for adults, $17.75 USD for children (6–12 years), and free for children 5 and under accompanied by an adult. To ensure a smooth experience, guests are encouraged to purchase tickets online.
