It was a great funfilled day but the tour to singer castle was too short. The tour guides were great. The boats were older and dirty but the boat to singer castle has concessions and a bar. Loved it!!

The boat tour was good although my husband thought the tour guide should have shared more local information. The actual Singer Castle tour was VERY DISAPPOINTING. The castle was beautiful except you get 2 minutes in a room before the tour guide is rushing you...More

This boat ride is truly enjoyable. We have now done this ride three straight years, and it doesn't get old. The tour narration is very informative. Make sure you visit Boldt Castle, it's incredible!

If you would like to go to Boldt Castle first, you could take the water taxi. The Uncle Sam tours will take you on the tour then on the way back to Alexandria Bay, the Boldt Castle stop on the way back.
