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.

It’s great! Staff were friendly, quick service, clean restrooms, excellent view. We precooked our time and tickets online. The gift shop interior is outdated and in need of some tlc but it does t take away from the view from the tower! Highly recommend the experience especially when the leaves change colour in the fall. Bring money for the toll bridge to get onto the island.

Heard about it from CTV Ottawa, but they forgot to mention the mud wasps. Got to the level covered in glass, was greeted by a gentleman, sort of a guide, he told me about a cottage for sale for five million dollars on an island in view from the tower near the bridge on Canadian side. There was a Raid spray on a table, lots of handouts, posters and other info around. Was not told if I could grab some.
He said the wasps were harmless, unlike other wasps, but my dad began to feel itchy on his hand as if bitten, even though we were told these wasps did not bite. Old tower, old elevator, entry through the gift shop. Great view.

A great place to take lovely pictures. Even when it's not sunny the place is great. We had the chance to find a great guide who was able to answer our questions and suggest other activities around.
The place is open during the weekends and you may want to reserve in advance. Due to COVID there are limits to the number of people at the same time.

Go for the view, stay a bit longer for the stories. The tour guide was very informative about the area and the history. Go here first in your visit the area, and the tour guide will tell you all the other local places the visit

Kind staff, quick elevator, the view is absolutely amazing you can see 360 degress , the guide was super friendly and had a lot of good stories to tell. The only negative thing I can think about is the lack of information panels on where to look if the guide is busy.
