If you don’t head out and explore, you’ll never know what you’ll end up finding. For those road trip goers looking for something new to do, why not ditch the road and hit the water? On a cruise that is.
The iconic 1000 Islands is an area that has been beloved for years. Tourists have a chance to enjoy a scenic cruise and even get a chance to see Boldt Castle.
Sounds like something up your alley? There are several cruises available to book, including Rockport Cruises.
Located in Rockport, ON., depending on the amount of time on your hands, the cruise line has several options to enjoy. One of them is the Heart of the Islands cruise which lasts about an hour. It lets you explore the 1000 Islands on a shorter schedule.

For a more in-depth experience, the Palaces & Palisades Cruise is highly recommended. It lasts for about two hours and features the Canadian Palisades where you can see a statue of St. Lawrence, sail under the 1000 Islands International Bridge, and view a stretch of cottage country called Millionaire’s Row, according to the cruise line.
You’ll also get a chance to see the Boldt Castle from afar, Zavikon Island, and Casablanca on Cherry Island. This cruise is priced at $39 for adults, and $34 for senior.
If you’re looking for a sunset experience, Rockport Cruises offers a Sunset Cruise with all the same stops. It’s more intimate and offers stunning views of the islands – a picture perfect moment.
Washrooms are available on the boats but have limited accessibility. There’s a bar and snacks available for purchase.
Unfortunately, the Boldt Castle Stop Over Cruise and the Two Castle Tour are on pause for the 2022 season so you’ll have to come back next year if you want to step foot on the castle grounds via Rockport Cruise.
In the meantime, you’ll have to admire from afar.
