Enjoyable, informative boat tour

Engaging overview of the Alexandria Bay area history and points of interest. Last stop is Boldt Castle where you have as much time as you want exploring.

The boat ride on the St Lawrence was lots of fun. The guide was very knowledgeable and the boat was clean. It was a fun way to see the area.

Yes, this is a tourist activity, but without having a huge amount of time, our trip was fantastic, picturesque, informative and inexpensive. What a beautiful part of the country, and what a beautiful experience. I would definitely recommend this and do it again.

Great tour of Singer Castle. For those who are lighthouse enthusiasts you can get a great view of Sunken Island Lighthouse at the beginning and the end of the tour. On the way back from Singer Castle the tour boat goes right by Sister Island Light. You can great pictures with a 18-300mm lens from the boat. The tour guide... More

The crew was very friendly and provided a great tour. The boat was clean and large enough to handle the water movement. Their tour enabled us to visit both castles and to see the local islands and shore line. Money well spent.

A great way to view the 1000 Islands and reach Boldt & Singer Castles. The staff fills you in on the history when taking a full cruise. They all seem to enjoy their jobs. Very friendly!

This was part of our group bus tour, and I never imagined how fun it would be. It's over two hours of cruising in the islands on the St. Lawrence River. Though it was raining lightly off and on, I stood on the upper deck. The lower deck was crowded and stuffy. We had a great tour director. The scenery... More

We took the 12:30 p.m. Uncle Sam's 2 Nation Tour on a Monday. It was a 2-1/4 hr. tour and it was $22.00/per person. Our guide was a sweet girl who was very informative and told a lot of jokes. From there, the tour was really, really bad. The boat we were on was extremely old, run down, and disgustingly... More
