Boldt Castle Tour in Clayton, NY
Join us for the most unique and complete Boldt Castle tour experience. Enjoy an intimate boat tour as we travel the St. Lawrence River between Clayton and Alexandria Bay among many of the 1000 Islands. Our professional local guides share rich history, legends and lore as we get closer to the islands than any other tour. This tour includes views of magnificent million-dollar homes, travels under the American span of the 1000 Island Bridge System and passes Rock Island Lighthouse State Park.
At Heart Island guests have the option to take a self guided tour of millionaire George Boldt’s Castle, built as a testament of love for his wife Louise, before tragedy struck in 1904. Marvel at life in the “Gilded Age” for the wealthy who built magnificent castles and summer homes on islands as we travel through “Millionaire’s Row”
As we travel through US waters and the St. Lawrence Seaway shipping channel we may get you close to one of the great ships, “Lakers” and “Salty’s” that travel the St. Lawrence River and the Great Lakes.
