There are lot of cruises which take you through these islands. There are about more than 1000 islands here. Some of the mansions on the islands are of famous celebrities. The boat ride is great and you can capture many pictures with great scenarios.

Historic with beautiful homes on various islands. View especially nice on bridge on way to and from Canada. Boat rides are available and they are really an excellent way to see the 1000 islands up close.

I had no idea this little town existed! Absolutely breathtaking. Amazing views & fantastic food. Lovely little shops. You can’t help but fall in love with Alexandria Bay & the Thousand Islands. Highly recommend a boat tour. Well worth the money. Boldt Castle was fascinating.

We took two boat tours - one at Kingston, Ontario and one at Alexandra Bay, New York showcasing different parts of the river. Beautiful scenery and interesting information about the islands.
