About
The 1000 Islands Tower (formerly known as 1000 Islands Skydeck) is a unique tourist attraction located between the spans of the 1000 Islands International Bridge on Hill Island. Running continuously, the elevator takes only 40 seconds to reach the first of three observation decks and provide visitors with a spectacular photographic opportunity as they enjoy the panoramic view of the 1000 Islands and St Lawrence River stretched out 400' below. The first deck is glass enclosed and wheelchair accessible. Visitors can browse our Gift shop, exchange Currency and enjoy a Cup of Coffee in our Skydeck Cafe.

There is a toll, just so you know. It was a good experience for my family. Recommended. Employees are very friendly. Thank you.

Will visit again

I had a tower visit booked for 3:30
Now I must note:
Before you can cross the bridge to the island you pass through a toll booth.. which confused me - I wish there was a note about this when booking my visit, but as it was only $5 and took debit I was ok, but a warning would have been awesome

The tower was epic ! You could see forever !
The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and was great to chat with. He knew so much, not only about the tower, but the surrounding area as he’s lived there his whole life

He gave us a ton of information about what we’d see at the top and sent us on our way !

While waiting for the elevator to head back down, we were chatting some more and he recommend I head to Brockville when I was done on the island to check out this dope train tunnel, which I did !

Hidden treasure
Jul. 2021
Place worth visiting but not much known. Beautiful view of 1000 islands from the top of tower. I came to know about the place only from hotel reception. There is potential to further develop the area to have more attractions while conserving the nature. For us it was great as there were hardly any people perhaps due to pandemic but tower was open so we got ample time and almost private visit to the top of tower. The person on the tower provided an excellent narration of the view from tower. Having a bit more shops including Tim Horton and eating places around will attract more tourists.

This was our first visit to the Tower and it won't be our last. Had a really good experience. The staff were top notch and the tower was a sight to see. Such beauty to be seen from every angle.

I wouldn’t recommend
Jun. 2021 • Family
I want to start this off by saying I understand we’re in a pandemic and doing our best to be safe and find places where we’re not crowded. So this evening we drove out to the tower with our two young girls just to picnic and do a little metal detecting and this lady walks over.. and RUDELY asks us what we’re doing. Like we’re doing something wrong? Meanwhile we had already been there for over an hour. There were no signs that it was a private property. I mean everything is closed. I didn’t know that meant we couldn’t go places? She just was so rude and I wouldn’t recommend anyone go there even when it is open.

Stopped here and was lucky enough that it was last weekend open. Elevator goes up about every 10 minutes. Great views from the 3 observation decks. Had great weather as well.

Great views
Oct. 2019
The views from the top of the tower are spectacular. Once at the top, there are 3 floors to visit, but the top two requiring climbing stairs. Also, had to wait way too long for the person operating the elevator to get me down once my visit was finished - the elevator is not self-operating. So I stood for quite a few minutes while she chatted with other visitors, which wasted time for me.

Annual trip

Was very nice to be able to see the islands from the tower. It wasn’t a real clear day but still good views. The gentleman at the too was very knowledgeable and was great at answering questions as well as suggesting things to do in the island. We went and saw the rail tunnel and the remington museum that he recommended. Neither disappointed.

Wanted to bring a group there, as we were in the area.
Sent an email, as I noticed on the calendar that there could
be an event there that day. Sent an email to check....no response

Fantastic View
Sep. 2019 • Family
It was a great idea to get to the top of the tower to see the fantastic view of the 1000 islands. You can also see the border of US & Canada. The staff were so friendly. The guy named John from the top of the tower is friendly and was so knowledgeable. He answers all questions you might have about the 1000 Islands. Great job, John! Definitely a place to visit.
