No visit to Eastern Ontario would be complete without a cruise of the world-famous 1000 Islands with 1000 Islands & Seaway Cruises!
Founded in 1994, 1000 Islands & Seaway Cruises has played host to tens of thousands of visitors annually aboard their fleet of modern, Transport Canada certified vessels. As times have changed, 1000 Islands & Seaway Cruises has kept up with these changes by way of introducing new vessels and products sure to appease every taste and budget.
In recognition of the trend towards shorter cruises, in 2011 they introduced a high-speed catamaran, the 'WildCat' adding an adventurous alternative to the traditional sightseeing cruise experience. Climb aboard the 'Wildcat' and experience the Islands like never before as you're whisked into the heart of the 1000 Islands on their two-hour "AdrenIsland" cruise featuring a view of both Boldt and Singer Castles or, experience the Cat for less aboard the one-hour "Singer Castle Express". Our WildCat cruises offer a unique cruising experience, not available elsewhere in the Islands and a fun-filled, stay-dry alternative to whitewater rafting and jet boating adventures.
Speed not your thing? Then choose from a variety of traditional Sightseeing, Dinner Cruises and Special Events.
For 2017, 1000 Islands & Seaway Cruises welcomes the 'Lady of the Islands' to their fleet - an elegantly appointed replica of an old-style, Edwardian river cruiser. This luxurious vessel will host the Company's Dinner Cruises in addition to Weddings and high-end charter events.
Also new for 2017, the Company has teamed up with the neighboring 'Aquatarium' to offer a series of '1000 Islands Discovery Packages' providing a discount of up to 25% off the regular admission for both attractions. Choose from a 90-minute traditional sightseeing or a 1 or 2 hour 'WildCat' adventure cruise combined with admissions to the 30,000 square foot aquarium and interactive discovery centre, where you can delve deeper into the ecology, geography and history for the 1000 Islands.
Start of end your cruise day with lunch or dinner the Crow's Nest Riverside Bistro - our fully licensed 120 outdoor patio, take-out counter and fully serviced dairy parlour located beside the tour boat docks.
