Our Signature Thousand Islands Cruise!

This tour takes you on a 22-mile journey through what is considered the heart of the Thousand Islands through the “American Narrows” and up to the Canadian border. 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. And of course we will get an up close look at world famous Boldt Castle while your guide tells you of its infamous love story.
