The people running the boats are very nice. We did both castle tours and the 2 nation tour with them. Parking is a little tight so get there a bit early.

Excellent information about the Islands on the St Lawrence River. The staff on the Boat were very nice. There was food and drinks available on the Boat and the prices were reasonable.

If you would like to go to Boldt Castle first, you could take the water taxi. The Uncle Sam tours will take you on the tour then on the way back to Alexandria Bay, the Boldt Castle stop on the way back.
