Niagara River Niagara Falls

They also offer the Maid of the Mist boat cruise which will take you to the whirlpools and bottom of Niagara falls. The water flow on the American side of the falls is much less in strength because of Goat Island, whereas Horseshoe Falls has no obstruction to divert it. The view of Niagra and Horseshoe falls is breathtaking. Be prepared to get soaked and keep your cameras covered.
Whirlpool Rapids is down river a bit and you can take a power boat ride through the rapids its great fun. At the bottom of Niagra falls, the water travels 15 miles over many gorges and whirl pools to enjoy.
The guides will tell you of the great history of Niagara falls and how they were formed.

Mary's island St.Lawrence River

If you want to get away from everyday life camping on Mary Island is the place to do it. The north side of Mary island has some nice cliffs to dive off to go swimming in the St.Lawrence river. Camping out on Mary Island State Park St.Lawrence river.  If you need to get away and camp then I would suggest Mary Island in
 upstate New York .It is secluded and the only way to reach there is by boat.
Mary Island State Park is located across from Alexandria Bay New York. The camp sites are primitive with no running water or electric. This makes it great to  get back to nature. Mary Island is beautiful and secluded even though Alexandria bay is just a mile away across the St.Lawrence river, with plenty of stores and restaurants.  You need to take plenty of light weight camping gear a tent, a 
sleeping bag, a cooler with ice and dining utensils along with food and water to get you set up to camp. There are bathrooms  but make sure to take along plenty of toilet paper.
