The next generation of an icon

For nearly 175 years, the world-renowned Maid of the Mist vessels have brought passengers up close and personal with the awe-inspiring Niagara Falls. The company’s first vessels were steamboats, with diesel-powered ferries introduced in the 1950s. When Maid of the Mist began exploring its new vessel options in 2018, the idea of electric propulsion quickly captured the company’s attention.
