Took the 2.5 hour cruise but I did not see anything spectacular. Many of the islands are populated with ugly bungalow. Only those preserved by government are still keep their natural look. Else it looks like a urban view in the middle of the river. The surroundings of Kingston city is more beautiful.

Booked the 5 hours cruise. We went on an informatuive tour about the 1000 islands, saw wonderful houses on little private islands, and had a chance to visit the Boldt Castle. Very impressibe, event if the restoration is incomplete. Cannot believe how stupid peoples are to have vandalized such a beautiful piece of history, but this is the way if... More

My wife and I decided to take the 5 hour Boldt Castle tour because we both hadn't seen the castle for many years. The last time we were there the castle was in ruins. The Gananoque Boat is the best company I think to take this tour and they do offer shorter tours around the Thousand Islands if you wish.... More

The Boat leaves from Gananoque, Ontario, Canada, so you will need a passport to go due to the fact that the stopover is in the USA , if you do not have your passport you can not get off the boat to visit the island. The cruise alone river is most relaxing and the sights are so nice to see.... More

Nice to sit outside on the top deck on a hot day. One drawback though is there are no screens up there for seeing the underwater shipwrecks. Also because the commentary is bilingual - you tend to stop listening during the French part and then don't always realize they have changed to English and you miss the first part of... More

Gananoque is not just a quaint little town in Eastern Ontario it is the gate to the Thousand Islands, one of the most beautiful sites in Canada. On a cool and somber day in mid June a cruise may not appear very appealing, but when it is the cruise on the majestic St. Lawrence river it is spectacular at all... More

We went to Boldt Castle with Gananoque Boat lines and it was fantastic. Very relaxing , comfortable and the scenery just beautiful. Boldt Castle was great but 2 hours was limited especially if you wanted to visit the Yacht House, not enough time . Otherwise everything excellent, the crew was awesome, very friendly.

We really enjoyed this boat trip. The boat was clean and modern, the crew were friendly and the commentary was interesting. It was reasonably priced and lasted as long as it was supposed to, but of course the main thing was the beauty and interest of the islands themselves. One small point - if you are interested in seeing informatin... More
