  • Nice bridges connecting the three little islands. The sound and look of the roaring river are amazing
  • When you go to these Islands you get a good view of Niagara falls
  • Very disappointed what the state and or parks did to this place.. Not what it used to be. And those little fences won't stop anyone. If you know what i mean..
  • Many of the tour brochures feature this as an item in a list. However, you don't visit these islands. The tour guide points to them as you drive by them on a highway, tells a story about their origin, and then you drive on. Don't factor this into your decision about a tour's value.
  • It is not like go to the falls but if you are here make the tour.
