we went on the 1 hour tour. Aside from the confusion and change of location at the last second, the cruise was good, informative and interesting. The islands and cottages are beautiful!

Took the five hour tour that included Boldt Castle. On the plus side: this was a great introduction to the 1000 Islands, narration was good, enough info without overkill. There were plenty of wireless sets with earbuds available, so audio quality was not an issue....More

I don't think it is necessary to buy in advance. I would be in line to board half an hour early to get a good spot on the middle deck.
