We used it to go to the Bolt castles. We purchased the tickets 10 Nunn before the ride. Free parking is also available just around the corner.

It was a great tour with our guide Meghan. She had lots of facts at her fingertips and fun stories as well. Super 3.5 hour activity - more if you get off and see Boldt castle also. We didn't do that and enjoyed the trip...More

The scenery and river were awesome. However, the boat itself was very noisy and as a result the acoustics from the tour narrator was horrendous. The company needs to update the boat or put in a better sound system. Very distracting.

We used this boat company to carry us over to the Boldt castle. They dropped us off for the tour and then picked us back up when we were done. They were very nice.

If you would like to go to Boldt Castle first, you could take the water taxi. The Uncle Sam tours will take you on the tour then on the way back to Alexandria Bay, the Boldt Castle stop on the way back.
