The sky deck is right off the International Bridge, on the Canadian side. Admission would get you to the general observation deck thru the elevator. There are two higher decks accessible using the stairs. The view is great. Don't miss it if you have time.

It was wonderful to get the view of the area and read and learn about the history. Great stop off the 1000 Islands Parkway. Near to so many area activities.

The view from the Sky deck is gorgeous. The staff at the top of the sky deck was very informative. Would love to see the foliage in the fall. Going through customs was easy and a short line.

It was a miserable day so not a good view but the staff soon cheered us up. A very quick journey to the top of the Tower where Denise pointed out the sites including several deer feeding. She told us the history of the area, explained about the Peace Bridge and generally was very informative. It did help that we... More

This attraction offers a nice view of the surrounding 1000 Islands and is roughly $11.00. The staff are friendly and helpful as well. I would rate this attraction as pretty good but the price is slightly high for what is offered.

The skydeck is a quick little stop to get a great view of the Islands and the surrounding area. We visited on a Wednesday so it wasn't busy at all - I think the family spent a total of about 30 minutes enjoying the views from the 3 levels.

The trip to the top is a long elevator ride but the view is spectacular! Guides at the top explain what you are looking at and two additional floors offer more breathtaking panoramas.
