Take in impressive waterfall views at Bridal Veil Falls Niagara, one of the three waterfalls that makes up Niagara Falls. While it's technically the smallest of the group, Bridal Veil Falls near Canada is a must-see destination when you visit Niagara Falls, often creating rainbow sights due to the constant spray of mist emitted from the falls.
Located a bird's-eye view away from Goat Island, it's a thrill to hear and see the massive stream of water cascade down Bridal Veil Falls in Niagara Falls, thrashing upon the rocks below to create a natural awe-inspiring wonder. In some areas around Bridal Veil Falls, you can even get sprayed or splashed by the water up close.
Bridal Veil Falls Niagara, also known as Luna Falls, has a 181-foot drop and a crest that's approximately 56 feet wide. Bridal Veil Falls is located on the American side of Niagara Falls, flowing between Goat Island and Luna Island to take centre stage at the Niagara Falls crest. Getting to Bridal Veil Falls from Canada is simple, so visitors on the Canadian side can head there to easily see all three waterfalls that make up Niagara Falls.
How to Get to Bridal Veil Falls
To see Bridal Veil Falls close up, head to Goat Island, which is halfway between Bridal Veil Falls and Horseshoe Falls, for spectacular vantage points of the water flowing over Niagara Falls from the edge, or to see Bridal Veil Falls from the top of the gorge. Goat Island is a small island in New York and is part of Niagara Falls State Park. You can get there via a bridge by car or foot.
Take the pedestrian bridge across to Luna Island, which also neighbors the American Falls, for unique photo opportunities and natural foliage. Sit down, relax, or even have a picnic at this unique vantage point.
You can also see the Bridal Veil Falls during a Maid of the Mist Niagara Falls boat tour, available on the U.S.-side of Niagara Falls. See the Bridal Veil Falls from down below while you're out on the open sea, and have fun being a part of the water on this tour.
Don't Miss the Cave of the Winds
Any visitor to Niagara should take the opportunity to visit the Cave of the Winds attraction. While there is no longer a cave since it was destroyed in the 1950s, this site remains a must-see, because a tour takes visitors 175 feet down an elevator to the base of the cliff of Bridal Veil Falls.
At the foot of the falls, visitors can travel along specially constructed wooden decking to navigate the rocky ground that snakes alongside the bottom of the cliffside and travel right up to the base of the Bridal Veil. Going to the end of the decking takes visitors into the Bridal Veil Falls itself and gets you just 20 feet away from the water, which is why the attraction provides free ponchos. Make sure your camera is waterproof, or you have a waterproof bag you can use to protect it. Access the tour from Goat Island.
