This exciting tour outfits you in a hooded raincoat and takes you into a cave and then along a catwalk near the foot of the falls for an up-close, wet and very rewarding view of the thunderous, cascading waters.

We visited cave of the winds and had very very good time. We were in Niagara last year and this was the most enjoyable and entertaining experience we had. The arrangements and the ticketing was done so quickly. As we entered the place we were provided with shoes and we wore it and as we came down we were given... More

Cave of the winds was an amazing experience. The opportunity to take in an up close view of the falls was spectacular. This is an absolute must. I was traveling with my 75 year old father and worried the cave of the winds would prove too difficult for him to manage. However, all portions of the steps had railings and... More

Yes, you will get wet. Yes, it is invigorating. We enjoyed it. You should do this as it is a once in a lifetime experience.

I thought we were going to be able to go behind the Falls but that wasn't the case. It was still very cool & exciting. Priced decently and you can take as much time as you'd like.

I really enjoyed this but they had still not done all the walkways so we could not do the lot but still you get right up close to under the falls. Lots of over spay, so you get quite wet. The gulls were nesting when we where there so that was nice.

This was a fun excursion, gives you a up close view of the falls from below. It seemed a bit pricey. I also struggled with marring the natural beauty of the falls with such commercialism.

Any view of the falls is cool especially when it's close up like this was. But we were expecting a cave behind the falls which is NOT the case with this tour. So if you're expecting to go behind the falls, try a different tour. Beyond me why they would call this Cave of the Winds when there is NO... More

The first trip we made to Niagara Falls we weren't able to go. Our second trip we went and it was a sight to see. It was very special do to the fact you get the feel of the power of the falls. If you go make sure you don't miss this its well worth the time.

At first I debated whether to do Cave of the Winds (on American side) or Journey Behind the Falls (on Canadian side). We ended up doing both tours but I can't believe I ever considered not doing this tour. Along with the Hornblower tour, this was the best way to experience the falls. You get SO CLOSE to them! And...
