Experience the grandeur and beauty of the 1000 Islands Region the Clayton Island Tours way!
Clayton Island Tour’s professional tour guides share the legends and lore behind the Thousand Islands region on a two- or three-hour scenic boat tour.
From mid-May through late October, Clayton Island Tours offers scheduled narrated tours for the general public. You will enjoy magnificent views of premier sights with opportunities to view giant Great Lakes freighters, lighthouses, magnificent island homes and the Thousand Islands International Bridge up close. Daily stops to Boldt Castle and Rock Island Lighthouse are available. All tours have many photo opportunities and cruise areas of the 1000 Islands not seen on other public boat tours.
If you’re looking for a fun group outing or private party we will create a custom private charter to suit your needs and make sure it’s a success! From accommodating your wedding plans, shuttling passengers to an island for a party, building a custom charter, or taking students of any age on an ecology voyage, Clayton Island Tours can help! Our boats are available for special events May through November.
Our group department provides receptive/tour planning services for tour operators, corporate events, weddings, family reunions, or any other groups planning a visit to the 1000 Islands Region. One-day and Multi-day itineraries are available year round.
