The twilight cruise cost $30 for me and my wife. Our guide was very good and even had some good jokes. Short trip but good way to end a long day in the 1000 islands.

Despite the multiple bus loads of school children running around and making lots of noise, we actually enjoyed the 2-nation tour boat ride. The perfect weather day helped. The stop at Boldt Castle was very enjoyable.
