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

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

We took the dinner cruise on Uncle Sams Boat Tours! It was a delightful evening. The staff was friendly and helpful. The buffet dinner was good too. The sights we saw from the boat were simply amazing! They has a singer on the top deck who sang all different types of music and he was great!

A variety of tours are available. I chose the Twilight, Two-Nation and Singer Castle Tours. I partook in the first the evening I arrived, and required the entire next day for the latter two, which included a voluntary stopover at Boldt Castle. These are great boat rides that offer many opportunities to view wealthy homes and a castle or tow.... More

We went to 1000 islands on Independence day and took the 2 Nation tour. It was $21 per adult and totally worth the money. The boat was nice with lots of space and clean restrooms. It was very informative if you listen to the tour guide :) , we were busy in clicking pictures though. The islands in the midst... More

I have been going to the 1000 islands every years since I was a kid, but until I took the Uncle Sam Boat Tour, I had no idea how much I didn't know! It was nice to sit in the sun and learn about all of the islands. My family has a boat, so I took the tour for fun... More

Very informative.....inexpensive food and good quality. Great for even small children.....don't miss Boldt Castle. A little pricey but not bad.
