Bridal Veil Falls Tours

The smallest of the three waterfalls that comprise world-famous Niagara Falls, Bridal Veil Falls is anything but small. Located on the US side of the falls, the 56-foot-wide (17-meter-wide) waterfall thunders over a 78-foot (24-meter) drop. Its frothy white cascade is reminiscent of a bride’s veil, hence the falls’ name. 

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. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • If you’re doing a cruise or Cave of the Winds, you’re going to get wet. Use the provided ponchos (complementary) and have a waterproof bag for your belongings. 
  • Book tours and attractions in advance to save time. 
  • If you plan on crossing between the US and Canada, be sure you have a valid passport and the required documentation.

How to Get There
Bridal Veil Falls is located on the US side of Niagara Falls, just north of Goat Island and south of Luna Island. To get to Goat Island, cross over from Niagara Falls, NY, via the American Rapids (1st Street) Bridge. If you don’t have your own transportation, consider joining a guided tour or taking a taxi from Niagara Falls, NY.

When to Get There
Weather-wise, the best time to visit Niagara Falls is between mid-May and September, though July and August can be very busy. Come in October to see the autumnal foliage or in winter to see the frozen falls. Note that most cruises and some attractions, including Cave of the Winds, are closed November through April.

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.
