Nice boat ride
Sep 2019
This 3 hour tour of islands and the St. Lawrence was amazing! The stop at Rock Island State Park and lighthouse was picture perfect. Worth the price. But the 'glass bottom ' part was disappointing. Too many to see easily and too cloudy to see clearly. But the sun and blue sky made up for that. Excellent guide - very knowledgeable. Highly recommend on a sunny day!

Relaxing on Rock Island
Aug 2019
very enjoyable cruise, we saw sights the big cruise ships can't get near, relaxing to be on Rock Island, great views, saw a freighter motor upclose past the island. Great cruise, we enjoyed it so much, this was our second time on this cruise.

Worthwhile time at Rock Island, friendly guides
May 2018
The tour is perfectly guided and apt for the time it devotes. The time at rock island is worthwhile. The serenity speaks of it. If one has more time, I would definitely recommend visiting Boldt Castle which I missed, but for 3 hours, this tour is justified.
