Went on the 1 hour cruise tour and had a great time learning about the islands and surrounding area. Scenery was beautiful and kids enjoyed the ride. A good way to see all the different islands that make up the region.

I remember since I took a photo of my admit pass :) the boat tour was just fine. It could be less crowded. Due to lit of noises i could hear everything what the speaker was telling about the islands etc. But still it was fine.

My whole family had a great time going around the amazing Thousand Islands. We learned to so much about a place so close to where we grew up, but had never been to. It was a hot, humid day, but worth the effort to go on the trip. The boat ride was comfortable also. Refreshments were available on the boat... More

I traveled with my husband and grown up kids. Since I have a slight disability in my right foot, I use a walking stick. I was pleasantly surprised at the attention paid to me by the lady tour guide, who always looked at me after each explanation of an island. It was a real memorable trip of my life!

We really enjoyed the boat ride and the tour of Singer Castle. The guide was very informed and we learned a lot. We wish we would have taken an earlier tour so that we would have had time to visit Boldt Castle as well. Of the two, I think touring Boldt would have been the better choice. If you have... More

What could be better than a boat ride? One with some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. The Thousand Islands is so beautiful and rich in history. The narrator does a great job of telling the stories and facts of the surrounding area. This is definitely a "must do" when you visit this area.
