This boat tour might be the best to look around 1000 Islands, but the boats are quite outdated. Other than, good price and tour service. You may need to schedule for at least 3 hours for the cruise.

Went on the 1 hour cruise tour and had a great time learning about the islands and surrounding area. Scenery was beautiful and kids enjoyed the ride. A good way to see all the different islands that make up the region.
