We took the 2 1/2 hours "lost ships tour". The scenery was breathtaking and this is a very good mini-cruise if you live in a 200 Km radius (Ottawa-Montreal). Last time we took the Boldt Castle tour and it was also very interesting.
The only negative point : you get to see the Lost Ships only in a video in a TV monitor ! I was under the impression that we were going to pass near "visible" shipwrecks but we didn't.
Other than that, the ship crew is friendly and the ship was on time.

We took this 2.5 hour cruise to see the very pretty sights of the 1000 Islands. This cruise did not disappoint us, it was excellent. We saw at least 150 islands all different sizes, some with buildings etc. Circled Bolt castle which was stunning. There are a few other cruise lines in the area including Kingston but they are over priced and not as spectacular as the Gananoque Boat Line. Recommend this cruise to everyone, it's better than Kingston. ( we went on both ).

This was an excellent cruise. It lasted 5.5 hours with a stopover at Bolt Castle in New York. The Boat leaves from Gananoque, Ontario, Canada, so you will need a passport to go as the stopover is in the USA. The cruise alone is most relaxing and the sights are a must to see. The castle itself is a work in progress but is magnificent and the tour and attraction admission more than worthwhile. I suggest you go in the summer when the weather is good. We went in the fall close to the end of the season and it was somewhat cold and damp. All in all however, we had a good time and came away with a little more appreciation for our country and that of our neighbour.

I found this cruise a good choice for seeing 1000 islands. At least 3 other operators propose similar cruises, but it is the cheapest and the closest to Toronto (only after Kingston). This was our first time cruising 1000 islands, so we enjoyed the trip very much. Gananoque is a charming small city and after the cruise we spent a couple of hours walking its streets.
