On The Majestic St. Lawrence

As Charles Dickens rightly noted during his trip here in the 1840s, the Thousand Islands “can hardly be imagined.” Where else in the world can you find almost two thousand islands, all unique and just waiting to be discovered? Gananoque is the perfect jumping-off point for a Thousand Islands cruise, scuba diving adventure or even helicopter tour. Visitors enjoy its shops and galleries as well as taking in a show on the waterfront at the popular Thousand Islands Playhouse. You’ll hear stories and legends of triumph, tragedy, romance, shipwreck and piracy and see the lavish homes of the rich and famous aboard a 1000 Islands cruise.
