We visited this area on a day trip Fourth of July Weekend . The area was very crowded and we had to park off site. Directions and a shuttle bus were provided by Uncle Sam's from the parking area and back. Unfortunately, on the ride back it was standing room only, which was a somewhat disappointing ending to an otherwise... More

This was such a nice company to go with. The staff were knowledgeable, professional and included some honour as well! The day we went rained a little bit but that didn't stop the staff from great hostessing.

We only had a couple days to spend in the Alexandria Bay area, so we wanted to make the most of our time. Took the 2 Nation Tour and very pleased we did. The 2 1/4 hour trip gave us a wonderful overview of the 1000 islands. The guide was quite informative and provided information on the waterway, the islands,... More

Big Boat promised no seasickness and I was thrilled! The boat had about three hundred people the day we took the 2 1/2 hour cruise. My friends promised that the tour would be a wonderful addition to our vacation and they were right. The boat took us around all the islands around Alexandria Bay . The highlights was Heart Island...

We went on the two nation tour, broke for lunch and then on the Singer and Boldt Castle tour. All and all a very good experience. The staff was nice and the tour guides entertaining. You could tell that they had a script they were following so by the second boat ride some of the jokes were a little old,... More

Another must for 1000 Islands. We had 17 in our group and all enjoyed the ride. We did not make reservations, but thankfully they had room for us with the lunch. The food was good: rolls, lunch meat, salad, meatballs, noodles and sauce, chicken. The employees were polite and the young man telling us about the area had a lot... More

My aunt, cousin, sister and I went on the 4th of July fireworks/dinner cruise. This is my third Uncle Sam boat tour ( each one has been different ) and we loved this one so much that we are planning on doing it again next year. We had such a great time !!! The food was better than I was... More

We went on two tours, the all-day Singer and Boldt castle tour, and the dinner cruise. We were able to reserve the dinner cruise in advance, however, they will not sell advance tickets for cruises without meals, so we had much anxiety about whether we would be able to get tickets for the day cruise we wanted, and we had...

We took the 2 & 1/4 hours 2 nation boat tour. Like other reviewers we enjoyed this boat ride. Make sure you sit on the left side as most of the islands and millionaire's row houses are on left side. Every boat tour halts at Boldts Castle at the end, this is a beautiful castle on heart island. It was... More

We did the lunch cruise. The food was very good. The narrating was informative & funny. I would have found this cruise a little long if not for the lunch. My only complaint is the dining area could have been cleaner, they should take the time to clean the tables and buffet area. I realize that we boarded as soon... More
