Overview

TOUR DEPARTS FROM THE US. Enjoy an intimate boat tour as we travel over 27 unique miles among many of the 1000 Islands along the St. Lawrence River. Our professional local guides share rich history, legends and lore as we get closer to the islands than any other tour. This "Heart of the Thousand Islands" tour gets you closer to the islands, includes views of magnificent million-dollar homes including "Millionaire's Row", travels under the American span of the 1000 Island Bridge System, and passes Rock Island Lighthouse on Rock Island

At Heart Island guests have the option to take a self guided tour of millionaire George Boldt's Castle, built as a testament of love for his wife Louise, before tragedy struck in 1904.

Departing Boldt Castle we travel US waters and the St. Lawrence Seaway shipping channel with the possibility of viewing oceangoing vessels that travel from around the world to the Great Lakes of North America.

Fabulous trip. Dennis has so much knowledge of the islands and area which he shares in a professional and entertaining manner. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip.

Four of us did the tour on 10/9 and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Both the river cruise and the Boldt Castle tour were perfect. Well worth the time and money. Special recognition to Brad, our superb guide, and Captain Jack. One highlight of the tour (and, of course, there's no guarantee this happens on every cruise) was when we passed a freighter heading east to the Atlantic. Strongly recommend this tour when Clayton opens up again next summer.

Our favorite part of this experience was the narration by Dennis of CLAYTON ISLAND TOURS. His knowledge of the area and informative approach kept all on board attentive and engaged in the tour. Without a doubt, this was one of the most enjoyable tours of our entire two week trip.

Scenic and informative tour. The castle is amazing, Unfortunately, mother nature decided not to change colors or it would have been 6 stars and perfect.

We went on the Boldt Castle and Two Nation tour. It was amazing. It was a beautiful day to be on the water. Captain Matt was a great driver and Brad was an amazing guide. He filled the entire tour with very interesting facts about the area we were in. The time we spent at Boldt Castle was just as great. It was so worth the amount of money we spent. We also got a picnic lunch from Kay's Kitchen located at the site. The food was really good and the price was great. You can preorder online, but if you wait to order when you get there, you have more choices. I can't recommend this tour enough.

I booked my tour online the evening before 10/08/21, for a 11am departure with Clayton Island Tours. The boat was comfortable for the 50 passengers expected. Getting in and out of the boat was not a problem, as I feared it might be. Captain Matt did a fine job of navigating and our tour guide, Dan, was excellent at his presentation of interesting and humorous information. It was a beautiful day for a boat ride. Boldt Castle was a separate ticket, that was reasonably priced for the value of the tour. There was an online option for downloading an app which provided a "guided" tour. I went with self guiding and reading the available placards around the Castle. It's been beautifully restored and they offer golf cart rides for getting up to the castle. Also, an elevator is available inside for moving between floors.On the whole, Clayton Island Tours was an excellent choice for spending 3 hours on the St. Lawrence Seaway. I was greatly enjoyed.
