Cruising Kingston and the 1000 Islands

Welcome to the 1000 Islands. Famously a playground for the rich, a hot commodity for family cottages, and the destination we can thank for that salad dressing, the 1000 Islands are one of the most beautiful places on earth — with endless shorelines, majestic views, and a storied history.

After exploring Kingston’s Historic Waterfront, cruise around Kingston and the 1000 Islands on a sightseeing, dining or private charter cruise. Whatever your preference, you’re guaranteed to have an unforgettable time on the water. Take a Mardi Gras themed trip, indulge in wine or beer-tasting, or sit back and enjoy a music or comedy performance while you cruise.

Step aboard a Bateau-Mouche styled Catamaran, a Mississippi River paddlewheeler or a St. Lawrence Steamer and cruise the 1000 Islands in style.

Your cruise might be over but the night is still young!​ ​Hop back into Kingston​ and experience our vibrant nightlife​, dine at our​ ​restaurants​, cafés and pubs, and enjoy the summer​ ​patio scene​.
