  • The cruise and time spent touring Boldt Castle was extremely interesting and worthwhile!! Beautiful area!!!
  • Absolutely beautiful! Tour boats, private docking, wheelchair friendly. Ice cream is pretty good, I would recommend not going up to the 4th floor, all it is is a balcony and graffiti. I sure wish they would finish restoring it lol.
  • Was there several years ago on a trip. Still remember Bolt Castle and island. Well worth the visit, just remember sunscreen and a big brimmed hat! Went on the Thousand Island tour got sunburnt something terrible...
  • A good place to spend a day to know the history and have picnic.
  • Love this wonderful island in St. Lawrence River. We were there during our boat cruise in Thousand Islands. Excellent picnic place. The Boldt Castle in the Island is amazing.
