This is great way to see and learn about the 1000 Island region. It is a two hour tour up and down the St. Lawrence River, both on the US and Canada side. Highly recommend getting off at Boldt Castle.

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.
