If you want the full experience of what the 1000 islands has to offer you must take an Uncle Sam Boat Tour! The staff is so courteous and accommodating and the views are absolutely breathtaking!

This is definitely a "don't miss" thing to do in the area. We did the lunch cruise. The lunch buffet was pretty good with plenty to eat for everyone. Worth the extra couple bucks. The tour was wonderful. Knowledgable and friendly staff gave the guided...More

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.
