“Pretty cool”
Reviewed August 22, 2012 via mobile

Came to the thousand islands most excited to see this. It was really cool. Ferry's goin back and forth to the island all day long...the boat staff where really nice. Even though the boat ride was only maybe 5 minutes it was really fun! U can walk around the island and the castle on ur own which I thought was the best part! Was really cool to be in such a place! I would go early...I believe the Ferry's start at 10am....we got on the first one and I was happy bc by the time we left the place was packed! Was cool being the first people on the island! The snack stand was good with reasonable prices. I would watch the movie on the sen nod floor b4 adventuring throughout the castle so then u know about everything.

“Nice place to tour”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

The Clayton tour boat took us to Heart Island. We walked around for a little while. Mostly just went to Bolt Castle and round the grounds of the castle. Did not have time for much else, the tour boat only gives a little over an hour at this location. Would like to have stayed longer.
