Cruise Through American and Canadian Waters!
This international tour takes you on a 22-mile journey through what is considered the heart of the Thousand Islands and into American and Canadian waters. This scenic trip gives you the best view of this truly unique geographical area shared by two nations and you don’t even need a passport!
Professional, live, tour guides provide a lively narrative as you cruise through the narrow channels, over historic sunken wrecks, and by magnificent summer homes of the rich and famous. They provide you with local historical facts and folk lore as well as information about the area’s geology, environment, and native wildlife.
As you cruise on the emerald green waters of the mighty St. Lawrence River, you see international ships from all over the world either heading upriver to ports ringing the Great Lakes or heading downriver to the ocean and ports in distant lands. You also see many pleasure boats, from kayaks cruising along the shoreline to high-performance powerboats criss-crossing the main shipping channel. Your tour guide even points out the exact location of the international boundary line between the U.S. and Canada, so be ready to look!
At the end of the cruise, there is the option to disembark at Heart Island to enjoy a self-guided tour of Boldt Castle at an additional admission fee. (Option available when Boldt Castle is open.)
