Walking along the river, you see several boats taking round trips near the fall. It's my chance to get on the boat.
I tried searching for a discount price but noticed my iPhone 5 battery is half full. I can make calls only with my iPhone so to save battery, I stopped searching and decided to pay the full price.
The photo on the left is Niagara Falls and on the right is Sheraton hotel and casino.
The sound is huge from this distance. I did not notice until now that there are two falls. The one in the end looks bigger. I was just so excited to see the fall on the left, so happy I made it this far.
Now the ride on Horn Blower. When I wrote this article, I searched and noticed that ticket purchase requires a reservation but I was able to buy a ticket with US dollar, exchange in Canadian dollar. The boat will depart from here.
You will get a free thin plastic rain coat before departing. The big head below is mine.
The boat is two stories high. You will have to wait in line to get on the boat. For those who don't want to get wet, you can sit inside.
Time was about 1 pm on a Saturday but it wasn't much crowded. I waited about 30 minutes.
The left photo is the Niagara Fall on US side. Looks like boats from US and Canada side takes turn to get close to the fall. If you stand at the very front of the boat, you get soaking wet once the boat gets real close to the fall. After a while I noticed I was the only one taking the shower.
The exit elevator takes you to a souvenir shop. I bought another sweater ($30) in replace of my wet one.
My luggage was already filled so I wanted to buy something less heavy but the remaining excitement strangely led me to buy a mug cup ($5).
I found no place to keep my belonging which left me with a more-heavy luggage to carry.
