Have you heard of the Thousand Islands? Or maybe you might be more familiar with the thousand island dressing perhaps? Well, the Thousand Islands consist of 1,864 islands along Saint Lawrence River at the border of Canada and the United States. The islands vary in size from the smaller islands with only one residence to the largest Wolfe Island with a population of 1400.
Kingston 1000 Islands Cruises operates a three-hour sightseeing cruise to the small cottage islands of the Admiralty group. Departing from downtown Kingston, you will board the triple-deck Island Queen. If you've purchased the dining option, you will head to the second deck. However, for sightseeing-only ticket holders, you have a choice of either the first enclosed deck or the third open-air deck.
There is recorded commentary on board as well as live musical entertainment which might keep you entertained as you set sail. It does take quite a while to reach the islands, however, I think it is worth the journey. Else, your other option would be to cruise from Gananoque which is about 30km northeast of Kingston.
