The Bridal Veil falls occupies the Central position of all three waterfalls that make up Niagara falls. This is the smallest of the waterfalls, only 17 meters wide. From the American falls, it was separated by the island of Luna, as small as the waterfall itself. It falls a total of just over 55 meters, including a final Cascade over boulders down to the misty pool maid. One of the most popular attractions of Niagara falls is located here in Bridal Veil Falls. The Cave of the Winds tour is just a few feet from the water - close enough to feel the spray on your face.
The cave of the winds, opened in 1841 for tourists, was a cave behind the waterfall of the bride's Veil. In Niagara falls State Park, it is the main attraction on Goat island. After a mountain collapse in 1954, the cave was sealed forever. Today, the cave lives as the name of the attraction on the same site.
To experience this for yourself, go to Goat island. You will reach the cave of the winds on a 53-meter Elevator to the base of the waterfall Bridal Veil Falls. The guide guides you through the mahogany decks that provide spectacular views, within six meters of the roaring waterfall! Plastic ponchos and sandals are provided for your hike, but you should be warned that they provide little protection from the wind-whipping spray. Keep the camera in a waterproof bag, as well as any other items that need to be kept dry.
An additional fee will allow you to Park your car on the island. Also, the pedestrian bridge that connects the two state parks is open for walking. The cave of the winds is open every day, from spring to October.
