This is where the fun begins and be prepared to get wet, unless you stay inside the boat under protection. Your cruise will have you so close to the Falls, you’re going to get soaked just from the spray.

Helpful Tip:

If you’ve got some flip flops to wear on your feet, bring them along. Otherwise your feet may get soaked! 🙂
