Jim & Pam’s Engagement

This is the Maid of the Mist, the ship made famous from Jim and Pam’s Engagement on The Office. If you ever visit Niagara Falls, you can watch this ship make trip after trip taking poncho clad spectators to the base of the falls and back again. It’s fun to watch. The ship will lumber away as it fights against the current to reach the falls. It pauses for a few seconds, then turns its bow downstream and is quickly whisked back to where it started. We never dawned the blue poncho ourselves, but I was curious what it would have felt like to be whipped around like that in the rough waters?

Have any of you ever taken a cruise on the Maid of the Mist?

  1. Cool shot Justin. I remember taking the boat back in the 90’s. I don’t remember much rocking but sure remember getting wet despite the ponchos. Best done during the summer.

  2. Unfortunately the boat wasn’t running when we went, so we’ll be making the return trip. Very cool shot.
