If you're in the Thousand Islands, don't miss taking a boat tour with this company. We do the two hour tour and stop at the castle because the area is just so beautiful. I think there's a one-hour and know there's a dinner tour. Such a friendly and relaxing way to spend some time.

Uncle Sam's is in a little kiosk on the river with about 6 docking bays. They have 3 different size ships which are used for their various packages. We decided on the 3 hour tour for $16 per person on a mid-size double-decker ferry (the Island Wanderer), but they also have short jaunts to Boldt Castle for $7 (but that one doesn't even check tickets.. ahem.. just sayin...)....

Our 3 hour trek was called the Seaway Island Tour and encompassed pretty much everything except Singer Castle. My daughter and I decided to ride up top in the open air where you can see better and feel the breeze in your hair. You can smoke up here, in the back of the boat.

Down below is glass-enclosed and is where the bathrooms are. These are kinda like an outhouse being on a boat, but were surprising clean. There is also a snack bar here serving pizza, hot dogs, candy, popcorn, sodas (Pepsi products), beer, and margaritas.

The tour was very fun and informative. Our guide was an old hand at this and had a blast with it, which made it even more fun for us.

If you plan to make a jaunt to 1000 Islands, do take the time for this tour. It's worth double what they're charging... and oh yeah, at the end of the 3 hours, this does include the 10 minute ferry to Boldt Castle where you can hang out as long as you like.

PROS: Excellent tour guide, comfortable boats
CONS: None, really
