You get a two and a half hour narrated cruise around various Islands, along with a few corny (but funny) jokes thrown In. Some are different, depending on who is narrating. You can be dropped off at Boldt Castle (beautiful) and take your time exploring...More

This boat tour might be the best to look around 1000 Islands, but the boats are quite outdated. Other than, good price and tour service. You may need to schedule for at least 3 hours for the cruise.

Buying ahead of time would probably be wise. We went in June and called a few days before, but still had to wait in line to get the tickets. Don't know how different online purchase is.
