Maid of the Mist launches first boat of the season

Maid of the Mist launched it's first boat of the season Friday. It is the 133rd consecutive season for the Niagara Falls attraction.

Niagara Falls, N.Y. — Maid of the Mist launched it's first boat of the season Friday. It is the 133rd consecutive season for the Niagara Falls attraction.

The launch comes about one month later than the first boat last year. The spokesman for Maid of the Mist, Kevin Keenan, said it is all dependent on Mother Nature. The average opening day is around May 8.

"It all depends on when the ice run clears the river and once that ice broke last week, we were able to get the boats in the water and we're ready to go," Keenan explained.

The boat takes you first to the American Falls and Bridal Veil falls and then to the base of the Horseshoe Falls, also known as the Canadian Falls.

For those that have done Maid of the Mist before, Keenan said no two boat trips are the same.

Maid of the Mist tickets can be purchased at the gate or online here.
