This was a nice cruise for seeing the 1000 islands. The cruise boat was neat and clean and not too crowded. Overall time well spent.

Hello, They do start in April IF the weather allows. I think you should contact them directly to confirm dates at their web page: Hope they are running when you arrive and welcome to the Kingston area.
