Riding the Maid of the Mist is bigger than life. Put it on your bucket list.

Maid of the Mist VI, Maid of the Mist VII, docked for the season


It is an annual event that is always amazing to see, as Maid of the Mist VI and Maid of the Mist VII are lifted from the Niagara River onto our dry dock for annual off season maintenance.

Crews safely and expertly accomplished the task on the morning of Wednesday, Nov. 8, 2017.

During the next few months, the boats will be given a thorough check, in preparation for the 2018 season, which will be announced next spring.

The Buffalo News published a Photo Gallery on the removal of the Maids.
