1 Hour - If time is a factor, take our shortest tour through the 1000 Islands. This trip highlights the area historically known as “Millionaires Row“. These islands were developed during the last two decades of the 19th century and early 20th century by the very wealthy as their playground and retreat.
Traveling by private rail cars from NYC, Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, etc., these titans of industry, banking, real estate development and hotel management put the 1000 Islands and Alexandria Bay on the map. They came to fish, race their powerboats, play polo, golf and tennis, host and attend lavish parties and leave the big city life behind. There were so many people of power and prestige in the area during “the season” that the New York Times kept a correspondent in the area to report on their activities. So step on board and step back in time on this very unique tour.
At the end of this tour, there is the option to disembark at Heart Island to enjoy a self-guided tour of Boldt Castle, including its grounds and out buildings, at an additional admission fee.
