Tour the Thousand Islands witnessing many of the popular known islands along the way to the mysterious Singer Castle on Dark Island!

Singer Castle is located on Dark Island part of the Thousand Islands.  It is an island and therefore, only accessible by boat.  I suggest using Uncle Sam Boat Tours.  The Singer Castle cruise is $37.00 and includes a guided tour of the Castle and a beautiful 11 mile section of the St. Lawrence River. The entire length of the trip including tour is 3 1/4 hours.

Highlights of the trip include Sisters Island Light, Whiskey Island, and many more.   Dark Island is situated only a few yards south of the USA-Canadian border that runs through the river (no passport required).  The islands castle was the last of several "castles"(sometimes called"cottages") built in the Thousand Islands during the brief interval of 1888-1905.

Upon your return the Shuttle will stop at Heart Island for those wishing to visit Boldt Castle.  That is a separate admission of $9.50 and is self-guided.  If you choose you can stay aboard and return back to the docks.
