I wanted to go see Boldt Castle. It was 8.50 for less than a ten min ride. I thought that was pretty steep. The boat was ok. But I wouldn't go back again

It's turning into a family tradition to go for Mother's Day on the Uncle Sam's Two nations tour. It's fun and informative, and the area is so beautiful. Highly recommended! We plan to try their dinner cruise, too.

Several different packages to choose from depending on how much money you want to spend. Boat shuttle to castles, 2 hour trips, twilight cruise, dinner cruise. All are guided, with information. Shuttle runs every 15 minutes.

This whole evening on our Uncle Sam Boat Tour was good. I would give it a better rating had I not been on one before, but it's kind of hard to top one from Hawaii. But it was a nice first experience for the Hubby. The thing I most enjoyed on the Uncle Sam Boat Tour was the top outside... More

Not a bad boat tour of the immediate area. A brief history of millionaires row was given. I was surprised at some of the history of these homes built on these small islands. Onde thing to note, many of the "tourist attactions" are clossed after labor day in the Alex Bay area.

This experience was with every penny! The guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. The driver was careful to allow both sides of the boat to pass by key highlights so passengers on both the right and left got great views and photos. Additionally, there was a passenger with a health emergency on our boat, and the staff handled the situation... More

A very enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours. I like how you can be dropped off at Boldt Castle and you can take your time and not be rushed.

This boat line offers a variety of cruise options. You can take a short trip to Boldt Castle, or spend hours cruising the beautiful 1000 Islands region. Lunch and dinner cruises are also offered. I have been on several trips and have never been disappointed. A must activity when visiting the area!

we did the luncheon cruise and it was just okay. nothing spectacular. i would not do the luncheon part of the cruise again. i suggest eating somewhere else before you get on the boat, althought they do offer pretzels and popcorn on the 2nd floor, along with hot chocolate and the norm. the cruise around the islands itself was really...
