"Our captains, crewmembers and associates are prepared to welcome guests from around the world as we build on last year's record season, when 1.6 million visitors boarded our iconic vessels.

"Our guests with take with them an experience that will last a lifetime."

From April 1 through May 19, tours will operate from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekends. Hours will expand in May with the holidays, and then again at the end of that month.

Only at Niagara Falls State Park can guests get closer than they ever imagined to the power of Niagara Falls. There is nowhere else in the world where one can ride the world-famous Maid of the Mist Boat tour, walk within feet of the falls at the Cave of the Winds, meet the legends at the Niagara Adventure Theatre, get hands-on at the Discovery Center and go under the sea at the Aquarium of Niagara. The Discovery Pass includes admission to all of these attractions, plus one day of unlimited rides on the Niagara Scenic Trolley.
