Original Heart Of The Islands Cruise (1000 Islands)


Gananoque, located approximately 3 hours from Toronto, 2 hours from Ottawa, and 3 hours from Montreal, is the gateway to the 1000 Islands. Gananoque is only 15 minutes from the 1000 Islands Bridge, which connects Ontario and New York State, while Watertown is only 50 minutes away. From Kingston, Ontario, Highway 401 and Highway 2 provide access to our community.

Tour Highlights:

Join us on a 1-hour trip that will bring you closer to the 1000 Islands than any other cruise. The area's peacefulness, dubbed the "Garden of the Great Spirit" by the Iroquois Nation, masks a history of adventures, conflicts, and rebellions. See the cottages of the fifth and sixth generations of a family. In the most intimate tour of the 1000 Islands, cruise the small passages of the Admiralty and Navy group of islands.
