Really enjoyed the cruise. It was very informative and relaxing. There was lots of parking and some locals have parking too for a fee. There's a souvenir shop, hotdog stand, a restaurant and ample washrooms for the visitors. The boat itself had a snack bar...More

A great place to explore, take a cruise or just picnic. 1000 islands has a lot of great character and scenery. Make more than a day of it.

I can't answer this -best to check with Gananoque Boat lines but I think April is a bit early for cruising.
