“Wonderful Tour-Worth the money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

We chose the one hour tour. It was great and we enjoyed every minute. The company's brochure and website information is accurate!!! Everything ran smoothly. We stood outside on the upper deck, the entire trip, to take pictures and just take in all the scenery. Staff were friendly and helpful. We would do it again, and book the longer tour next time.

“Pretty Good Tour”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

Touring through the 1000 Islands is beautiful. We took the 2.5 hour tour and it covered a lot of distance. The negatives...the sound quality is pretty bad so unless you are close to a speaker, you might hear 50% of what the guide says. The configuration for seating on the boat was not the greatest compared to similar boat tours I have been on. I would recommend this tour but it's not the best. We had lunch at the Gananoque Inn before the tour. I highly recommend that!!

“Fun Way to See the 1000 Islands!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

We took the two and a half hour cruise and it was a lot of fun to see all the beautiful scenery! However, it was a long time to be on the boat and I wish we had chosen a tour in which we could of had a chance to get off and walk around. My only tip would be to sit on a lower deck. The top deck can get very hot and windy. The lower decks have just as good a view without the heat and wind.

“Five hour Boldt Castle Cruise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

This was a great cruise. We took a 1000 Islands cruise from Kingston last tear but this one was much better. Boldt Castle is great. Enjoyed the entire 5 hours. Staff were friendly and they narrated in English and French and included some very interesting facts. One issue was that we could not hear a parts of the narration on the top deck for part of the cruise due to the wind.

“Great tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

We went on the 5 hours tour that included stopping at Hart Island for Boldt Castle. The tour was good and the audio did give some good stories about the local area. The boat was clean and looked well maintained. It was drafty on the way back so I would suggest bringing a coat or sweater. It is an extra $8 each adult to get on the island and you must have a valid passport as the island is in the US. It was a bit pricey but a good day out.
