“Bolt Castle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014

This was a great river cruise. The guide was very informative about the Islands. We has a friend come in from California and just love the view of all of the islands.

“Best Tours in the Area!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014

This was my second time on a Clayton Island Tours boat ride. The first was the Two Nations/Boldt Castle ride, which was fantastic. This time I opted for the new Rock Island Lighthouse tour. This was a great experience. We got to spend some time on Rock Island, and we were even able to climb to the top of the lighthouse, and look out at he awesome vista that is the Thousand Islands.

The thing that I love the most about this company is that it feels so down-home. The guides are super nice, and will accommodate you in any way they can. The boats are not huge, so there is a sense of intimacy with your small group that you just don't experience on the larger company's boats.

We love the Thousand Island region, and will be back again next year. We will then take another tour with CIT! I highly recommend their boat tours!

“Rock Island Lighthouse (Glass Bottom Boat)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

Algae was high so couldn't see much but everything else was awesome. Perfect on a hot day and for all ages. We've done several others but this was very interesting and the view was amazing, worth every penny and then some.

“Small group, great tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

Our tour was the perfect size... About 17 of us on board. Andy, our tour guide, was informative and entertaining. We road on the Miss Clayton for about 45 minutes, arrived at Boldt Castle for another tour, then returned to Clayton via a 45 minute tour along a different route. Worth the money. Great three hour adventure!
