About Uncle Sam Boat Tours

Uncle Sam Boat Tours invites you to cruise the St. Lawrence River and explore the famous Thousand Islands. Uncle Sam Boat Tours has been providing guided tours of the Thousand Islands for over 85 years from our downtown Alexandria Bay location directly across from Boldt Castle.

Uncle Sam Boat Tours provides a variety of regularly scheduled sightseeing cruises as well as luncheon and dinner cruises, the Sip ‘n Sail and our popular Craft Beer and Wine Tour. We are also the ONLY tour company that allows guests an unlimited visit of Boldt Castle and Heart Island. It’s not just a tour; it’s an unforgettable experience!

The most popular cruise is the Two Nation Tour, a cruise departing from Uncle Sam Boat Tours’s home port in the heart of the Thousand Islands, Alexandria Bay, NY. This narrated international tour offers you historic and scenic wonders in both American and Canadian waters; no passport required! At the end of each trip, there is an optional stop at world famous Boldt Castle on Heart Island for a self-guided tour. Click here for more information about Boldt Castle.

Can’t say enough good things about Uncle Sams Boat Tours. Friendly service. Great tour of the 1000 Islands day or night. Wonderful for special events and affordable.

Amazing Food!

Last evening under the stars and a crescent moon, our group set out on the dinner cruise. What a great time! The food was delicious, especially the prime rib…the service was impeccable.

A Must Do!

This boat ride is truly enjoyable. We have now done this ride three straight years, and it doesn’t get old. The tour narration is very informative. Make sure you visit Boldt Castle, it’s incredible!

A Highlight!

One of the highlights of my vacation! The 2 hour lunch cruise was the best. After a fantastic meal, I enjoyed a very nice relaxing afternoon learning about the 1000 Islands & the surrounding area.

I Recommend!

The guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and was more than willing to answer questions. He also had a sense of humor which is always a plus. They have drinks and snacks aboard which was nice. I can't say anything negative about my experience.
