The cruise is nice, the staff is very friendly and the food is good. The food was buffet style and it had different options of cold and hot salads, rice, chicken and beef. It tasted... More

We headed off on our paddle boat around the Lake and up the river. Seats were assigned on the second deck for a sit down lunch.m, which was fantastic! It was very orderly and the staff were sensational. The beer was delicious and cold (additional coast). The meal was fantastic. Plenty of choices, both vegetarian and meat based. Plentiful in...

Nothing like a liesurely one hour tour through the 1000 Islands on the Gananoque Boat Lines. The colours on the leaves are beautiful in the fall. I recommend this to everyone.

We have taken guest on the 1,000 Island Cruise for years and have never been disappointed. The meal is always great and the scenery is spectacular! A must do activity for anyone visiting Kingston and the Islands.

Went on the tour and had 3 different kids that were either doing karate or screaming to the top of their lungs. Even the crew didn't know what to do. They take you around tell a little history if you can hear from all the commotion and see part of the islands.

We have now tried all the cruise options... and for the spring or fall...the dinner cruise is outstanding. You Board from the heart of the downtown Kingston Historic area, the fun of cruising but always with great weather inside. A must do activity to really appreciate the amazing setting - and truly unique geography found no where else in the... More

Did the cruise from Kingston on the glass covered boat. Went with another couple. I would not recommend this for children. You have 3 choices for a meal. I have tried all 3 and they where all very good. The entertainment on the cruise was very good and educational (i.e. history of the 100 islands and the St-Lawrence). I would... More

Bring your camera and passport if you wish to explore the castle that is nestled on one of the islands but is actually America. Otherwise you can't get off the ship. Beautiful 3 hour tour spectacular scenery so make sure you have extra batteries for.your camera.

Thoroughly enjoyed the scenic view on this cruise through the islands. Inside or outside areas available to view the sights. Buffet food was excellent in relaxing lounge with live music. Tour length was good. Would do this again. Nice for adult couples.

I have taken this cruise a couple times. It's an awesome three hour cruise plus The band I play with Adam Knapp & Kickback have entertained on two Thousand Island cruises and believe me when I say, it is worth your while. Cheers!
