Maid of the Mist Introducing Battery Powered Boats

May 6, 2019

By: Marcie Culbert

The Maid of the Mist is about to become more eco-friendly.

They're buying two new zero-emission passenger vehicles, which will be powered by high-capacity battery packs. They will replace two of their older ships which run on diesel.

The new vessels should hit the lower Niagara River in mid-September.

They will have to be recharged for seven minutes after each trip around Niagara Falls.
